Bay seniors unembarrassed about their love of nostalgic chotchkes should check out the vintage California license plates available from the DMV, offered in any style from the 50’s to the 70’s. This, just to make things clear, will be in addition to the current plate on the back of your car. $50. The major requirement is patience. The program won’t start unless enough people sign up. And even then plates won’t be issued til mid 2015.
