Wisconsin Bill to Ease Restrictions on Collector Cars and Historic Military Vehicles Signed Into Law

Legislation 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 was signed into law by Governor Scott Walker. The new law allows modifications to vehicles registered as collector vehicles, as long as the bodies of these vehicles are not modified. 

Currently, upgrades like safety glass, radial tires, a radio or hubcaps are reasons to deny registration. The law also exempts collector vehicles and all former military vehicles from the requirement that they meet Federal certification label requirements. Historic military vehicles can now be operated for occasional personal use. Use of these vehicles had been limited to parades, car shows and transporting them to and from necessary testing, maintenance, and storage.
