Dear Historic Vehicle Owner,



As the owner of a historic vehicle, we want to make you aware of legislation passed by the Maryland General Assembly that goes into effect on Saturday, October 1, 2016. It is important to know that this legislation will impact how historic vehicles may be operated.



Effective October 1, 2016, a Maryland registered historic vehicle may no longer be used for transportation to and from employment, school, or for commercial purposes.



In addition, historic vehicles with a model year of 1986 or newer may be subject to safety equipment repair orders issued at roadside by law enforcement.



Thank you for your compliance with this new Maryland law.

Yep, I got the same thing. I think the not for use for going to work, school or commercial was nothing new but the "subject to safety repairs roadside" is new.. I think.
I'm sure it's MD trying to make a dime but! they'll give you a dime back if you figure out a new way to kill deer. I think next week opens up the new paint ball your neighborhood deer season. Spit ball is the following week. Ok, maybe I'm off topic a tad and besides, I am a hunter

I fear it wont be long until a lot of states start doing the inspection law.

i see a bunch of vehicles with historic plates that are all rusted through and smoking like a chimney cruising down the road. So if they want to do "SPot" inspections like they do with big rigs, so be it. But maybe the states should just request a yearly mileage update. I know im not paying for registration and inspections and emissions on a vehicle I maybe put 200 miles on in a year. kept out of the weather and whipped down with a diaper when im board in the garage LOL :werd:

The Book George Orwell's 1984

Nineteen Eighty-Four, often published as 1984, is a dystopian novel by English author George Orwell published in 1949. The novel is set in Airstrip One, a province of the superstate Oceania in a world of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance and public manipulation, dictated by a political system euphemistically named English Socialism under the control of a privileged elite of the Inner Party, that persecutes individualism and independent thinking as "thoughtcrime." :snipersmilie:

Walt,

I am planning to look into the Street Rod Tag option as well. Haven't had much time for anything outside of work lately. When I do have time to look into it, will share what I find.

Law

I have licensed my Caballero as Antique here in Texas. I had older cars for years in Ohio but always had normal licensing as I drove them a lot. The cost of regular registration and insurance here would have been cost prohibitive. I saved a bundle and only needed basic safety inspection. I appreciate that option.

If there were no restrictions every 25 year old beater would be running antique plates, I think the states know that.

I have had Gymmy since early July and it has less than 50 miles added, all for "service" or fetching parts. JP

In Michigan, older cars were licensed by weight. I just renewed the plates for our vehicles. My '75 Elco was $37 bucks. Don't remember when they switched to the so-called value type fees, which I believe were based on the original new price ! :cussing:
My '93 Park Avenue is $116, and the wife's pet Jeep was $79 bucks

I really don't mind the license fees if they use them for maintenance of roads, but in this state they like to swipe funds from other things to take care of pet projects.

And not to complain too much, many bridges in this area have been replaced or rebuilt.

The plates here are called " Historic Vehicle" and not antique..same thing, for old cars... I don't know how old "historic" has to be !!

it's in the Texas State Constitution about what revenue is dedicated to what as well as various laws they pass (like special revenue raising license plates). they throw it all into 1 big slush fund and spend it however they want, disregarding the own laws they passed!
