By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

wis
The Wisconsin legislature approved legislation to allow the display, on collector vehicles manufactured before ’79, of one or two historical registration plates from or representing the model year of the vehicle.

Legislation to allow the display, on collector vehicles manufactured before ’79, of one or two historical registration plates from or representing the model year of the vehicle was approved by the Wisconsin legislature and sent to the governor for his signature and enactment into law. Under the bill, these plates could be used if the vehicle is being operated to or from a car show or parade and any current registration plate issued for the vehicle is carried in the vehicle.

In Wisconsin, a vehicle is eligible for registration as a collector vehicle if the vehicle is at least 20 years old, has not been altered and is being preserved for its historic interest, or if the vehicle is at least 25 years old and is a certain type of former military vehicle.
