Bombardier license plates
« on: January 31, 2011, 01:15:37 pm »
Hi,

I am very pleased to have found this forum and have been lurking here for a few months, looking for license plates used on Bombardiers. I have been interested in license plates since 1987 and have a collection of different Manitoba, Quebec and other plates. Does anyone on this forum run plates (real ones, not novelty designs) on their snow vehicles? I've managed to collect a couple of plates thanks to some very helpful folks here in Manitoba, and would be interested in collecting some of the years I am missing.

Perhaps folks here would be interested in my research, which indicates the following plates issued for Bombardiers (ie. tracked snow machines in excess of 450KGs):

MB: up to 1997 plates started with letter S and 1-4 numbers, 1997-present regular car plates but with SV sticker top left
QC: up to 1989 plates started with letters SN, from 1989-1995 plates start with C and have a December (12) month sticker top left

I would also be interested in seeing any photos anyone might have of these scarce plates in use. I did find a photo of one on here a while back from 1949 with MB plate S-54, that was a real classic.

For my collection I am looking for the above plates. Does anyone here have any of these plates either in use or on junked snow machines that are no longer being used? It would be a shame for them to be tossed out as I am quite interested in collecting them!

Thanks for reading my post and I hope to hear from anyone with photos, plates or info.

Back after nearly 10 years away. Seems Manitoba has eliminated the SV plate category on March 1, 2019. Just checking if anyone might have a plate or two? Interested in any year from 1938-present.
