Here are the complete details:

The 2011 Bob Waldmire license plates are valid in Illinois only. These plates are valid for 60 days as they are special event street legal plates. They must be registered with a car in order to get a full set (2) plates.

Plates are $25 a set. Mailing charge is $6. In order to get a set of plates, you need to send 2 checks, one for $25, and a 2nd for $6, plus a copy of your Illinois car registration to Buz Waldmire who will be handling the plates sales for our Association. Checks should be made out to the Route 66 Association of Illinois.

Buz’s email is buzwaldmire@gmail.com. There will be 100 sets available. Numbers can be requested, however there is no guarantee you will get your requested number. The 66 Plate set is not available, one plate will be raffled off, the 2nd one will be on display at The Hall of Fame and Museum in Pontiac.

Should the plates be available by the April 17th meeting, you will be able to pick up your plates at the quarterly meeting or have someone pick them up for you. The $6 mailing fee will then be returned to you. If you would like your plates mailed to you, the $6 will cover mailing costs. If you just want to pick up your plates at the Motor Tour registration in June, just indicate that either in your email to Buz or in a note with a copy of your car registration. You will receive a set of plates at that time but they will expire the last day of the Motor Tour.

Please note that the registration form for your car has to be good through June 12th. *Note - the above image of the license plate displays the incorrect date.

After June 13th, plates can be purchased from Buz Waldmire, but you will only receive 1 plate as that is what the state gives us after the special event period is over, and there are no state restrictions on who can buy the plates after the event is over. If you are interested in having a plate as memorabilia, please contact Buz at buzwaldmire@gmail.com.

We appreciate your patience on this. The plates will be silver with bright green!!!
