For my "new car" (2012 model year), registration is something like $350/year, but is dropping relatively quickly. Smog testing has not yet been required for it.

My wife has a 1982 car and a 2000 car. I don't recall the registration fees for those, but they are certainly between the two sets that I pay. Smog testing is required every other year for them, and it costs about $80 for the test and cert.

My 2000 Insight (just paid it today) was 98$, my dad's 2004 Corolla was 137$, and my Mustang (as I said before) was 79$. I think in Cali the age of the vehicle determines how much it costs, idk.

Wow! I pay a whopping 90$ a month (1,080) a year to insure my Insight + Mustang, along with 50k life insurance.

79 a year in VA, if you renew online you save a dollar and if you do an extra year or 3 you save another.

Id consider the hybrid plates since it did something for hov lanes or tolls, but it wasnt clear how that works.

I had a custom plate, but someone else had the same thing, but mispelled. I would get tickets in the mail for that persons location. I had to deal with that til I went to a generic randomly assigned plate.
