Wisconsin Introduces Bill to Ease Restrictions on Collector Cars and Historic Military Vehicles

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

In cooperation with Wisconsin's collector vehicle community, legislation has been introduced in the Wisconsin Senate to allow minor modifications to collector vehicles, exempt former military vehicles, historic military vehicles and collector vehicles from importer certification label requirements, and expand rights for historic military vehicle owners. A companion bill will soon be introduced in the House of Representatives. The measure seeks to allow modifications to vehicles registered as collector vehicles, as long as the body of these vehicles is not modified. Currently, upgrades, such as safety glass, radial tires, a radio or hubcaps are reasons to deny registration. This bill will allow changes that retain the spirit of historic authenticity.
