Hope the contents of the glove box don't get damp.

Ha! My eyes are already burning at the thought of it.

Also reminds me I have to pay my delightful $1300 plate renewal before the end of the month. Thanks Colorado.

The same sort of come back as Triumph motorcycles, i.e. someone has bought the rights to the name.

What kind of vehicle has a $1300 plate
renewal? I am thinking a fleet of Kenworths. My county in TN is $26 with no other tax or fees.

2018 Ford Raptor, they base it on weight, emissions, value all of which suck.

Wife's 4Runner was initially $800 for the first time plates and tag but renewal dropped to $640... Colorado sucks when it comes to vehicle registration. All the Texans in the Colorado Raptor Forum are constantly whining how expensive it is and end up just keeping their Texas plates!

That’s a no win system. An old car with low value would have high emissions and still pay an excessive rate. There would be mass demonstrations and possible violence if TN law makers passed a system like that. Some counties do have an additional “wheel tax” but in most that is only $35 to $50 dollars extra.

They tried to add the wheel tax here in Giles County but that was shot down pretty quick.

Tag renewal seems to have gone up slightly too as I just renewed my car tag and it was $32.64, $2 of which was for postage and $1 for renewing online, still slightly cheaper than Colorado though.

We are lucky tax wise in Tennessee. I was very pleasantly surprised by my property tax when I built my new house in Moore county. When I got my first years property tax bill If less than $300 per year I went down and paid it same day before they changed their mind, Last year it was $301. This is for a 1200 sq foot brick house with detached garage and minimal view of Tim’s Ford lake in a very nice development. With no state income Tax I don’t mind the sales tax,

I think if it's 18 years or older it is either registration exempt or a one time fee, I can't remember the specifics.

But yeah, registering vehicles here sucks, especially having had a brief stint in Montana and seeing all those prices without sales tax

Dang. And here I am complaining about $160 including the $30 I have to pay for living in city limits.

Form a Montana LLC and register it via that like most of the supercar owners seem to

Anyone fancy a brand new 1960's Mustang?



They're a bit pricy, but officially licenced by Ford, and seem to be "resto-mod style", which was presumably necessary anyway to get them through the currenty safety tests.
