NEVADA STATE LEGISLATURE PASSES BILL TO RECOGNIZE REPLICAS

A version of SEMA model legislation to create a registration category for replica motor vehicles was approved by the Nevada State Legislature.   Under the bill, replicas are defined as vehicles manufactured after 1968 to resemble vehicles manufactured before 1968. Replicas would be exempted from all emissions inspection requirements applicable to other vehicles in the state.  Registration as a replica vehicle would be open to 100 such vehicles each year and use would be limited to occasional transportation and other hobby-related activities. Titles for these vehicles would list both the year of assembly and the model year that the body of the vehicle replicates. The bill must now be signed by the governor before being enacted into law.
