    A look at the old-looking new license plate.

    Delaware drivers will soon be able to reserve a retro, five-digit license plate number from the Division of Motor Vehicles.

    Media outlets report that starting Thursday, a limited number of plates will be available for purchase at all DMV locations on a first-come, first-served basis. The five-digit plates are available seasonally each year.

    Drivers can buy stainless steel or porcelain plates made by the Delaware Historic Plate Company for $110, plus fees.

    Drivers who reserve the plates must give up their current number.

    The News Journal reports that license plates with low numbers are coveted by collectors in Delaware. The interest is a result of the state's vehicle-registration rules, which allow for license numbers to be transferred and passed down through generations.
