Michigan Governor Rick Snyder vetoed a bill that would have allowed for the registration of a “military surplus vehicle” as a “historic vehicle.”

“Historic vehicle” means a vehicle that is more than 25 years old, owned solely as a collector’s item and for participation in club activities, exhibitions, tours, parades and similar uses, including mechanical testing, but not used for general transportation. Use of the vehicle during the month of August in each year is considered an exhibition.

In announcing his decision to veto the legislation, Governor Snyder explained that military surplus vehicles were not manufactured for on-road use and should be restricted to off-road purposes.
