Bill would allow classic car owners to forgo front plate

SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- A state House committee has approved a bill that would allow South Dakota owners of classic and sporty show cars to display only rear license plates.

SIOUX FALLS (AP) - A state House committee has approved a bill that would allow South Dakota owners of classic and sporty show cars to display only rear license plates.

The proposal spearheaded by Sioux Falls Corvette Club members is backed by more than 50 car clubs in the state. It now goes to the full House.

Corvette club member Mike Skiles says few classic cars have spots for front plates, and owners don't want to drill into bumpers to comply with state law.

Those applying for the waiver would have to sign an affidavit saying the vehicle would be driven fewer than 6,000 miles annually and wouldn't be used for general or commercial transportation. Owners would have to give the car's odometer reading and supply an updated reading each year at renewal.
