Greetings and welcome to 2024 and to my page. Wishing you well!

ALPCA is the Auto License Plate Collectors Association, founded 1954 and currently headquartered in Virginia. I have been an avid ALPCA member since 1962 and have attended over 50 national conventions. Hope to continue to make as many of the national meets as I can.

The friendships made and continued over the years continue to be blessings to us.

I do have a few things to trade or sell, so feel free to message through the ALPCA website. Mostly still looking for Louisiana motorcycle plates, 1957 and earlier. Interested in buying or trading. As far as is known, the earliest year for motorcycle in the Pelican State was 1922. However, there are none known of some of the early years, so even if it is not available, I would still be interested in hearing from you should you know where any of the oldies might be.

Louisiana passenger plates are still of interest as well, particularly attempting to reunite some early pairs that were split, 1915-1935. Late 30's pairs do turn up for sale, as well as the 1950 and 1951 pairs, but finding teens and twenty pairs is usually a needle in a haystack.

To see a history of the state police troop letter assignments used on Louisiana car tags starting from 1963 and continuing through 1996 and later, please click on the Louisiana map below. Several districts were abolished as the interstate highway system was completed, as better radio communications systems were installed, and/or for budgetary reasons. The map shows the parishes that were shifted from one troop to another over time. Three river parishes (St John, St James, St Charles) were divided by the Mississippi River (St Charles has more recently been put back together in Troop B), otherwise the districts followed parish lines. There was a troop "O" carved out of "F" at Delhi for about a year (1969) but no "O" plates were ever issued. Our featured district is "E" which is headquartered at Alexandria.

In the meantime, and easier to do, I still work on my county collections, which include Kansas and Montana. The Montana 1955 set is still missing a Sweetgrass County (#40), as well as some other needed upgrades. Please contact us if you have 1955/1956 Montana plates and/or Louisiana items to sell or trade.
