LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — It’s true that everything old is new again.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles announced today that those legacy license plates are coming back!

The plates will feature the looks made popular in the 1950’s (black letters, yellow background), 1960’s (yellow letters, black background) and 1970’s (yellow letters, blue background).

The plates will go for $50 each. Payment can only be made by check, money order or cashier’s check. DMV offices and Auto Club outlets are not able to process pre-orders (which start January 1, 2013.)

You are allowed to personalize the plates as well. There is no additional fee for personalization.

A new law requires that 7,500 applications must be reached by January 1, 2015.  If 7,500 applications are not received by that time, any fees paid for the California Legacy plates will be refunded.
