2022 marks two automotive-related golden anniversaries in Wisconsin — the 50th anniversaries of the Iola Car Show and the establishment of the state’s Collector license plate.

The June 1972 issue of Old Cars reported that, at 11 a.m. on May 3, 1972, “Wisconsin Assembly Bill A-1202 was signed into law by Governor Patrick J. Lucey, using the fender of a 1928 Marmon as a writing desk. The landmark bill is the first of its kind in the United States and provides for a distinct ‘Collector’ license plate…. Previously, Wisconsin law allowed only cars 40 years old or older to be registered as antiques. The new law encompasses the antiques, and allows the antique plates to remain as an optional form of registration, but further allows collector cars which are 20 years old or older to be registered separately.
