A version of SEMA-model legislation to ease the process by which replica cars are titled and registered will be considered by the House Transportation and Public Works Committee, Thursday, March 5, 2015. The bill defines "replica car" as a motor vehicle that is assembled from a pre-fabricated chassis and body kit purchased from a replica car manufacturer and provides that the model year is the year of manufacture of the model or brand that a replica car most resembles in outward appearance. The bill also provides that a replica car is exempt from a state or local law or ordinance requiring periodic vehicle or vehicle emissions inspections and testing.
