The car does look practically new, but that's not the point. I get very angry when police overstep their authority and violate my rights, even if it is a minor transgression. Bottom line is that I was stopped without valid probable cause.
My position is that if application of a law is dependent on the model year of the vehicle, it is the duty and responsibility of a police officer to make that determination BEFORE making a traffic stop. If the model year cannot be determined by sight it is trivial for him/her to do so by running the license plate. (The state does not issue special stickers for exempt vehicles, and I was told that lack of a sticker would be treated the same way as an expired sticker - so removal of the expired sticker would not have made a difference.)
