Ohio should be improved over this rating since this story appeared.
All Emissions testing is now gone. It was in limited counties but no longer. Never made sense other than the company doing it was invested by people passing the laws.
The other thing we just got the go ahead to remove the front plate. It was fought over for years but no longer are we required to put a ugly square plate on the front of our vehicles.
The Historic plates are good because you buy them once and they are good for 50 years, No more buying plates.
The two real negatives. Our weather is not great from Dec Till late April. Also the roads are crap. They are in bad shape or under construction and you get about two years and they are bad again. Low bidder is not the way to go.
Ohio is pretty much do as you please.
WV should be higher as they have the best roads and they have their own Tail of the Dragon roads there that are great.
Ohio definitely requires a title on classic vehicles. They honor NY registration and convert to an OH title, so I assume others also, but a bill of sale car ( in state, or out) ....... not with out a trip thru the local court system. Calling the Title office is just an exercise in misinformation frustration, I was eventually told no to NY reg, needs a title. In person the registration was transferred to a title. I haven't hear of anyone having issues with using Historic plates here and year specific are allowed. A cool addition.
