Perhaps this appeals to you.  go to this site, search for your state and year; copy, then use all-weather clear tape to install. I had to modify one to get year 1953 on it. If you want a copy of an NC 1953 one, let me know and I will post.

    Note: the link above did not display all the states on the left side on my smart phone. Maybe a computer/ laptop is needed. I also got one for my '65 Healey and '31 Franklin.

    I still have my original 1965 NJ inspection on my window!

    I still have the state inspection sticker on one of my 37’s from New Mexico, but it’s faded to an almost unreadable state.  

    Thanks for the tip!

    You can use Paint.net program (free) to change the 43 to a 37 in the first one if you wanted to. I used the program to make the 1953 one shown since it was N/A.

    It was CELEBRATION TIME back in the day when one of the junkers I drove passed one of these inspections!   The process was nothing but a scam for the state or a whim by the inspector anyway.

    Back in the '60's, Missouri came up with one of these inspection programs. I started taking our cars as needed, as a teenager. Of course my dad was at work. So I had found this greasy old gas station where they did these inspections. Had a big old fat guy, Barney, who ran the place. We called him Barney Barn smell behind his back. He was always unkept and smelly, always had a chewed up cigar in this mouth. Might or might not be lit. Anyhow, the first car I took to him was our 1955 Hudson, a daily driver at the time. Barney was impressed with it, so he always remembered me after that. They never did more than a glance at the cars, and as time went on, he would just write up the sticker when I came in, not even look at the car. I would take all our cars there as needed. So over time, it got to where I was in college and one of the cars needed to be inspected. My dad took it down to Barneys. Called me up and said it got rejected. Since I was going to be home anyhow, I said I'd take it down there. Even though all the cars were titled to my dad, Barney thought I was him. When he saw me come in, he remembered that he'd rejected the car. Apologized and said "Oh , I didn't know it was yours, some older guy brought it in." I told him yeah, that's my dad, he's ok. After that, Barney would approve them if my dad took them in.

    This is a cool find as I have a modern one on my 50 Super Six, but otherwise for the most part it’s just a way for extra money for the states, don’t get me started, lol

    I didn't do this correctly the first time (as shown above). Need to cut around the sticker; not include the white background, then use the clear all weather tape in a rectangle form. Do not touch the clear sticky part; will show on windshield.
    This is correct appearance now.
    EDIT NEED TO KNOW: before you copy some you will see the word "SAMPLE". You can eliminate this with 'paint.net' {free program} and using 'pick color' and 'paintbrush' to cover that, I had to !!
