SEMA is opposing legislation in the Michigan legislature that threatens to change the $30 registration fee for historic motor vehicles (renewable every 15 years) to an annual fee. Under current Michigan law, the owner of a historic vehicle may also choose to use restored authentic Michigan plates from the same year as the vehicle’s model year for a one-time fee of $35.
This measure would increase that one-time fee as well, to an annual registration fee of $30. Under the bill, each of the registrations would come up for renewal every year on the vehicle owner’s birthday. Follow this link for more information. For details, contact Steve McDonald.
