How Manufacturers, Suppliers and Consumers Can Take Advantage of the New Replica Car Law

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

It’s a new era for the kit-car industry! Last year, a law was enacted to permit car manufacturers to produce turn-key replica vehicles for customers nationwide. When fully implemented, this new law will allow U.S. companies to make and sell classic-themed vehicles that were virtually impossible to build under the previous one-size-fits-all regulatory framework. Replica cars resemble production vehicles manufactured at least 25 years ago. Learn how low-volume production car companies and those that supply equipment and components can take advantage of this unique opportunity. The seminar will provide an opportunity for experts to explain the law and for manufacturers and suppliers to ask questions about how they can take advantage of this new marketplace.
