REGINA - Drivers wanting to take a sentimental journey in Saskatchewan now have their choice of two retro licence plates.

The plates will be available starting Wednesday through Saskatchewan Government Insurance.

They are modelled after the 1965 Saskatchewan licence plate.

They have a green background with embossed white numbers, border and lettering along the top and bottom.

One of them says "Collector” along the bottom and is intended for owners of classic cars.

The other plate says “Rider Nation” and features a vintage Saskatchewan Roughrider team logo on the left.

People can order by filling out a form that will be available on SGI's website. The classic plate is $75 and the Rider plate is $100.

Don McMorris, minister responsible for SGI, says about $25 from each Rider plate is to go to the CFL team.

Both plates can be personalized for an additional fee of $75.
