I thought collector plates were only for limited production cars? like an ITR for example

It's 25+ years for cars that weren't limited in production. Even ITR's don't qualify until they are 25 years old because the numbers were likely greater than 1500 per year.

As per ICBC
Quote:

at least 25 years old, or

at least 15 years old and of no more than 1,500 of that make and model (not edition) produced worldwide by the manufacturer for that model year

at least 15 years old, where the manufacturer that own the "trademark" or "make" of that vehicle has ceased manufacturing vehicles of any kind for at least the last five years, or

registered as a 1948 or earlier model with a vehicle status of "altered" (has had one or more major components replaced).
But the 25+ year-old cars have to be stock, or only have period-correct aftermarket modifications to be eligible for collector status, and be in exceptional condition at time of application. I say 'at time of application' because I've seen an old Toyota Corona in a driveway with collector plates even though it had faded paint and rust all over the place.

according to that the edition doesnt matter, so an ITR would still be considered an Acura Integra? which is not even close to limited production

Trims do make a difference. Hence DA integra GSR is a collector's car at 15 years old.

^ what's the point of doing that?

Collector cars aren't even allowed to use as a transportation. You aren't allowed to get a grocery with it.
It's strictly for recreational use only.

Having collector plates doesn't mean the car is a museum artifact sitting on a concrete pad, forever.
How do you use a car recreationally, other than as a form of transportation. Use it as a couch? Art piece?

Driving for pleasure use only
When you're using your collector vehicle, you can drive for pleasure use only. This includes pleasure use in the U.S.

That means you can't use it to drive to or from, or part way to work or to school. Doing so will affect your insurance. Talk to your Autoplan broker for more details.
The only restriction is on driving to work or school. Just like how you can insure a non-collector vehicle for pleasure-use only. Except for non-collector vehicles, you can have six days a month for work/school under pleasure-use insurance, iirc.

Unless you consider buying groceries part of your work, there's no reason why you can't drive a '60s E-type to Safeway. Though if you had a collector vehicle, you'd probably be concerned about the number of door dings you'd get in the parking lot.

The point of getting collector status is <$300 insurance per year, not needing to get a day permit just to drive your garage queen on a Sunday and not needing AirCare. It also looks cool to have those plates, like the DB2 above.

The downside, imo, are the restrictions on modifications to the vehicle.
