I dont see why you would get pulled over unless you're doing something to attract attention in the first place??? I drive my 77 Z with classic plates all over and have never been pulled over.
I've never got pulled over either but I only drive it once in a while.Even a few miles with my old girlfriend

At Summers last blast in Vernon TX I cruised with no problems intact the state fellas waved

When I registered my Camaro in Tennessee last year I thought about classic / antique plates for my Camaro for the cheaper cost in registration . I decided after careful consideration to go with normal plates as after reading the lic. plate description Tennessee gave on their DMV website

It mentioned in their example of a antique vehicle as a 25yr old non modified engine or body . So my Camaro with its 8 point roll cage , 5 point harnesses , racing seats and 600hp sbc wouldn't fit their description

I have texas classic car tags (tx). I had a police officer run my plates at a stop light. I could see him punching numbers in his computer. I bet he would have pulled me over if I had Antique plates, must have been a slow day.

I have antique plates for a few of my cars, but what is even cooler is YOM (Year of Manufacture) plates.
In NH, if you have a car registered with Antique plates, you can run YOM plates.

I mentioned this in my thread about legalizing the 73Z for the road. I used YOM Texas plates for the 73Z. The car is registered as a classic. I found the thread.
