WYOMING REINTRODUCES LEGISLATION TO RECOGNIZE STREET RODS/CUSTOM VEHICLES

SEMA-model legislation to create a vehicle registration classification for street rods and custom vehicles and provide for special license plates for these vehicles was reintroduced in the Wyoming Legislature. This is the same bill that was approved by the full Wyoming House of Representatives and the Senate Transportation Committee in 2007.

Due to time restrictions, the bill was not considered by the full Senate. The bill defines a street rod as an altered vehicle manufactured before 1949 and a custom as an altered vehicle at least 25 years old and manufactured after 1948. Under the measure, kit cars and replica vehicles will be assigned a certificate of title bearing the same model-year designation as the production vehicle they most closely resemble. A hearing date has not yet been scheduled.
