It also (probably) includes some past registration currency requirement(s). Prove that it was non-operative and it should go down to $71 plus $10 per year of non-op (if I recall correctly). Do you have personalized plates?
In Minnesota, classic car owners pay a "one time" license fee. So you never have to pay again. I think it was around $100 per car.
Good reason to keep your car a long time.

Thanks all for the replies - "Kali"fornia, and others. I know Schwarzenegger jacked up the prices, but this is robbery!
Ok - So something is up. I paid all my fees when I bought the car, so it should have settled down to a normal range of $40 to $60. I will look into this a bit more - I don't have any special plates, not designated as a collector, etc.

1220 of them were “(WU)” 400 A.I.R. 4 barrel manual transmissions. (Engine codes in parenthesis are for cars built with AIR Injector Exhaust Control, code 616. This was an emissions reduction modification performed on the heads. They were cast with an air injection passage to reduce emissions. They were installed on Firebirds manufactured for sale in California only).
It has a 24 339 code for the dealer on it from PHS... It was from Peninsula Pontiac, 2909 Pacific Coast Highway, Torrence, CA 90505
