1982-84 - Indiana goes multi-year

Beginning with the 1982 plate, Indiana would hold onto plates for a minimum of three years, at least if you stuck with the normal plates numbered 101 or higher. If you were a big wheel and got a plate numbered 100 or lower in any county, you did get a new plate each year.

Bearing a neat, folksy farm scene, the "Hoosier State" plate proved popular among motorists, and when you consider what replaced it in 1984, it's no wonder that I still saw some of these on the road as late as 1987 ... illegally, of course!

The 1982 plate was issued in Monroe County; 1983, Clark County; 1984, Lagrange County.
