The new law allows modifications to vehicles registered as collector vehicles, as long as the bodies of these vehicles are not modified. Currently, upgrades like safety glass, radial tires, a radio or hubcaps are reasons to deny registration.

The law also exempts collector vehicles and all former military vehicles from the requirement that they meet Federal certification label requirements.

Historic military vehicles can now be operated for occasional personal use. Use of these vehicles had been limited to parades, car shows and transporting them to and from necessary testing, maintenance, and storage.

Thanks and congratulations to all who participated in supporting this bill!
