Motor Tour 2017 Commemorative License Plate

Registration time and complete information about our 2017 Motor Tour is coming soon. We'd like to whet your appetite for this, our 28th annual Motor Tour along Illinois Route 66, with a peek at this year's Tour license plate design.


Every $35 Motor Tour registration will include a commemorative license plate along with a passport booklet, dash plaque and decal.

This year's plate is made of aluminum and bears the official Motor Tour logo. Please note that these plates are NOT street legal but are highly-prized collectables.

Extra license plates will be available for purchase after the Tour for $5 each + shipping. Mailed plates will be shipped in protective wrapping to avoid damage.
