Legislation that sought to allow Virginia’s antique vehicle hobbyists to install and use aftermarket exhaust systems was held over to the 2015 legislative session by the Senate Transportation Committee. The bill had already been amended and approved by the Virginia House of Delegates.

Under the amended bill, antique vehicles would remain exempt from the requirement that they have exhaust systems of a type installed as standard factory equipment, or comparable to that designed for use on the particular vehicle as standard factory equipment. However, they would continue to be required to be “in constant operation to prevent excessive or unusual levels of noise.”
