I found that 38 states have a "year of manufacture" statute, allowing owners of antique cars (and bikes) to use plates that match the year of the car.
As in, you can buy an original 1967 motorcycle plate and use it on your bike if it's a '67.

What I can't find is if Texas allows this. And since I can't I'm guessing no?

figures, just as i found it....

[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif](c) In lieu of issuing plates under Subsection (a), the department may approve for use license plates presented by the owner that were issued by this state in the same year as the model year of a vehicle described by Subsection (a). The department shall approve for use on a passenger car license plates that were issued for a passenger car or for a truck and shall approve for use on a truck license plates that were issued for a truck or for a passenger car. If the department approves license plates under this subsection , the department shall issue a symbol for attachment to one of the license plates, as determined by the department, showing the year in which the vehicle was registered under this section.

You had to get QQ? I have regular plates on my classic car. i think you got shafted.
