In Kansas the vehicle has to be 35 years old to be antique, no classic or historical, regular or antique only. They issue an antique plate, white with blue lettering and a number, like 128463, (boring) or a year of manufacture plate, this option is my favorite, you don't have to ask 'what year is this?'
The first year mine was registered I had a 73 'KMB 14' plate (at one time this plate was on the 69 Buick that put me in the hospital for 4 1/2 months, center punched it on a Harley, when it became known to me I had to have it) and it cost me $45 to register the plate and $12 in personal property tax.
This year for renewal it was $17 total, $5 on registration and $12 in pp tax, the Roadster was the same, the 521 is not tagged so it was only $12.
What do you pay per year to the State and Local Government to keep your Z on the road?

On the other hand - when I bought my 72 new in Washington State - a new registration & plate cost over $85.00 there. When I moved here to Florida in 73 - a new registration and plate cost $15.00.

The only antique exclusion is on my driver's license!

The cars need to be inspected for safety only, not emissions.
Regular car registration is $36 with both safety and emission testing. Safety and emission test is usually around $75.

We used to have a 25 yr rolling exemption till we passed the roads and bridges TAX in '09. The good thing, anything 25 yrs and older were grandfathered in for the collector plates as long as you kept them current or sold the car.Now you can get the collector plates for '75 and older.
Registration fees start to decline until the cars are 10 yrs old. The they are at their lowest at about $70, This includes the $40 R&B TAX. emissions testing yearly for '76 to '81, '82 and newer get tested every 2 yrs.

Virginia is $25.00 fee and it's good for life. The car has to be over 25 years old. There is no personal property tax and no inspections of any kind required! Pretty awesome. I can register the 90 300ZX in 3 years as an antique.
Well, that's if you get antique plates. But with antique plates, you're technically limited as to how/when/where you can drive the car. I have regular Virginia plates, which are $40.75 state registration.
And THEN there's county personal property tax. (Don't you have to pay those in Richmond?) York County is the "bend over and squeal like a pig" county. They think my Z is worthless, so I only have to pay $4.70 tax and $23 county fees for it. I also have to pay the EZ-Pass bargain rate of $0.85 everytime I cross a bridge. (Damned toll bridges!) Now if they thought my Z were worth as much as our late model truck (which it isn't), I'd have to pay $159 county personal property tax + $23 county fees to keep it on the road. Also the state registration fee for a truck is a bit higher, at $45.75. That would be a grand total (state and local) of $182 clams per year! Gah!
York county once even taxed me every year on my CAMERA. The bloodless bastards!
BTW, about the inspections -- They may not be required for an antique vehicle (not even for my Z with standard plates), but you do have to file an affidavit certifying that your car is safe. If you end up in court over some accident, you'll be the certifying authority and will have to defend both your qualifications and every aspect of your car. If *I* end up in court over an accident, I can say, "My car easily passes the yearly state safety inspection, with never a problem," and that's the end of discussion. That privilege costs me $15 per year. Well worth it, IMO.
