question about historic tags

Well im thinking about buying my father 67 camaro and fixing it up. I know I would get historic tags but I was wondering does that mean it illegal to drive during the week.

Every state is different. Best to look this up on your own state DMV website.

You definitely need to check out the MD specifics, but here is an example for VA. I have antique tags on my '76 Caddy. In VA, that means you don't need to get it inspected, don't need a county emissions sticker and don't need to pay county taxes (personal property) on it. It also means that you can't drive it over a certain number of miles per year and you aren't supposed to use it as a daily driver. Now, does anyone actually track that? I don't know. But not a problem for me and the Caddy.

I don't think there is a limitation for historic tags, maybe your thinking of collector car insurance??? I have historic tags and had no limitations (Arizona) but as soon as I got collector car insurance I was limited to 4000 miles per year, and had to own another vehicle as primary driver.

Directly from the VA DMV Code:

"Registering your vehicle either of these ways limits your use of the vehicle to:
1. Participation in antique car club activities, exhibits, tours, parades, and similar events.
2. Testing its operation, obtaining repairs or maintenance, selling the vehicle or trailer, transportation to and from events as described in number 1 above and for the occasional pleasure driving not to exceed 250 miles from your residence.
3. Carrying or transporting passengers, personal effects or other antique motor vehicles being transported for show purposes.

You may not, however, use your vehicle for general, daily transportation. This includes, but is not limited to, driving to and from work."

That's a good find.
