Special Interest plate. With a few restrictions (supposed to be used for car shows, not daily use) you can put them on anything over 25 years old and it's good for as long as you own the vehicle. Can be used on cars, trucks, big rigs, travel trailers, motorcycles, etc. Oregon also has an Antique plate that has the same restrictions, and can be used on anything at least half as old as the auto industry, which Oregon figures started in 1900. So in 2019 anything older than 1959....next year it will be anything older than 1960. I have SP plates on my crappy old 1990 Suburban, because it's a one-time registration and Oregon already gets more than enough of my money via fees and taxes. Link to the Suburban we call The Crummy. Old Forest Service rig, 4-speed with a 2-speed Ranger overdrive (8 forward/2 reverse) 2wd with a 4.10 and dual A/C. A great around town beater. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10207583292801101&type=1&l=b6eaadb362
