SPRINGFIELD — Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced applications for special event license plates honoring the 50th anniversary of one of America’s iconic automobiles, the Ford Mustang, are now being accepted by his office. Automobile enthusiasts may apply for random numbered or vanity special event license plates.

“It is especially fitting this year to honor the Mustang on the 2014 Secretary of State Vehicle Show special event license plate,” said White. “The Fall Vehicle Show is a great venue for automobile enthusiasts, and what better way for attendees to show their pride than through displaying this year’s special event license plate.”

Applications for the plate and entries for the 65th annual Secretary of State Fall Vehicle Show are now available at 450A Howlett Building, Secretary of State’s Office, Springfield, IL 62756. Those interested may also call 217-557-7220 or email

The Fall Vehicle Show will be held on Sept. 6, in Springfield’s downtown area at the corner of Capitol Avenue and Second Street.

“This is the second year the show will be staged on Second Street in the shadow of the Illinois State Capitol which proved to be one of the most popular venues in the show’s long history,” said Secretary of State Vehicle Show Board member Steve Brown of Washington.
