URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
Minnesota Bill to Ease Process for Designating Classic Cars Signed Into Law
Legislation (H.F. 3072) to provide for a program that will allow classic car status to be determined from nationally recognized standards and guides was signed into law by Governor Mark Dayton. Under the current system, this status must be designated by the state through a time-consuming amendment to the law. The classic car plate is available to “any motor vehicle manufactured between and including the years 1925 and 1948, and designated as a full classic car because of its fine design, high engineering standards, and superior workmanship, and owned and operated solely as a collector's item. . . ” The new law will speed up the process by which Minnesota vehicles can attain classic car status.
