RMV Sets Drawing for Low Number License Plates
(Boston, MA) Registrar Rachel Kaprielian today announced the RMV low plate lottery will be held Saturday, September 6 and invited applicants and the general public to attend the live drawing to be held at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline from 11 am to 2 pm.
"Since the first registrations were issued in 1903, Massachusetts motorists have shown an affinity for low number plates," said Registrar Kaprielian. "The museum's collection of vehicles from the horseless carriage to the first electric car provides the perfect backdrop for our own history-in-the-making event in awarding this years most desirable registrations."
Some of the 164 license plates up for grabs in this year's lottery include R3, P7 and W55. So far nearly 2,900 Massachusetts vehicle owners have submitted applications to enter the lottery. Applications can be downloaded from www.massrmv.com and must be mailed or postmarked by August 8 to be eligible for the drawing.
In addition to the plate lottery, the RMV will host several exhibits on transportation memorabilia including some of the original 1903 plates, old registration books and early licenses. Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour the museum which houses America's oldest car collection. Currently, the exhibit hall is offering a special showing of Italian classic cars in addition to the extensive collection of vehicles owned by the Anderson family which include one of the first "electric" cars. The museum is also holding a Porsche festival on the grounds of the former Anderson estate which is expected to attract a number of vintage Porsche models.
