Yes.  And they make you show the card when you get the antique plates.  And of 
course the DPS trooper is going to ask for it when you get pulled over for 
hitting a deer, and all the other reasons you may get pulled over.  The antique 
plate only exempts you from having it inspected, it does not exempt you from 
being in compliance with all laws.  Ya still gotta have stop lights and all 
that other good stuff.  I can see it now:  officer, I only hit the deer cause I 
didn't see it cause my lights don't work and it's dark and I don't hafta have 
lights cause this is an antique car.

I've got over 100,000 miles on my baja, antique plate, rear only, no inspection 
sticker.  I have never been stopped or questioned regarding no inspection or no 
front plate.  Every time I see a Texas Trooper coming at me I expect them to 
look me over good and even whip a U to come up and look.  From the front all 
you can tell with an antique plate is there is nothing on the windshield, no 
inspection or regr sticker, and no front plate.  They have never even glanced 
my way, and I watch.

if you register as a Classic, you still need annual inspection and 
registration because its considered a daily driver. Antique does not require 
inspection or even insurance and you get a 5 year registration tag. however 
driving around without a insp. sticker on your window is a RED flag to the 
police. now if you enjoy being stopped and conversing with law enforcement, 
choose antique. otherwise just get it inspected IMO.

  Heyyyy, back up. How does one forgo the necessity of getting an inspection? 
Is there an age limit or something? 
  They don't do inspections where I grew up. Back in Detroit everybody's engine 
light is always on. We just put black tape over it and keep on driving.

Replacement.  My experience with springs is if it was wound at a factory 
you can't rewind it by hand it just never works.  Plus you can put an 
eye out.
