The new title came today for my TT. I went to the DMV with 4 pictures and an engine number, it all sounded too easy but here we are 2 1/2 weeks later with a title.

Now to decide what plates to put on it. The new MN pioneer plates are rather ugly since they quit stamping them, they are know printed. I'm leaning toward original era plates but I need to go to the DMV and get more info.

Note that most people think title is evidence that you own your T or TT. In truth it document the T's ownership of you. In any event, now that you are legally bonded to your TT we need a couple of pictures!

Lonnie, you can probably find Minnesota's law on year of manufacture plates online. They vary from state to state. One state says the original plates must not be restored. Another state says they must. No man's life and property are safe when the legislature is in session.

Lonnie, just curious, did they let you pass go with out bonding it?

Thanks Steve , I will check online first.

Clayton,No bonding required.
It cost me $60.75 at the DMV and I would guess if I want pioneer plates it will be about another $150.

Lonnie I have a nice set of Pioneer plates that came with my '13 that I got this winter in Minneapolis. PM me and we'll see if I can be of some help.I don't know if you're allowed to get these from a private individual or not.

You don't haul that car strapped to the front axle like that, do you ???????

You should grab around the perch and cross pull or better yet, wheel straps.

Minnesota allows the transfer of existing Pioneer plates as long as they are not currently registered to a vehicle.

I have a small assortment of three-digit Pioneer plates if you are interested. I have singles and pairs. None are currently registered to a vehicle.

If you are looking for YOM Minnesota truck plates, I can refer you to collector in the Twin Cities who may have truck plates available. (Minnesota refers to YOM plates as "Original Minnesota Plates.")

As far as I'm aware, Minnesota does not have any condition requirements or restrictions regarding YOM plates, i.e. unrestored vs restored.

Everything you need to know is readily available from the MInnesota Department of Transportation in a consumer friendly format online.

Steve..not always. This was from a short trip to the DMV for inspection. I've done it different ways, and around the perches. Haven't tried wheel straps though.

Nice car, Tim.

I don't know about the road conditions in your neck of the woods but here in Washington State, that axle would be bent going 5 miles ! I installed E-Trak on the floor of our Pace enclosed and drive right over them with our '14 Touring and use the wheel straps/nets - real quick to tie down. I cross strap the rear at the spring at the point where the frame meets.
