<P align=center><FONT color=#ff0000 size=3>Pro-Hobbyist Street Rod and Custom Vehicle Bill
Approved by House Infrastructure Committee;
<U>Senate Version Scheduled for March 13th Hearing</U>
</FONT></P>


SEMA model legislation to amend the vehicle titling and registration classifications for street rods and create a classification for custom vehicles was approved on Mar. 8th by the House Infrastructure Committee. An identical Senate version of the bill (S.B. 124) will be considered by the Senate Transportation committee on Mar. 13th. Both bills define a street rod as an altered vehicle manufactured before 1949 and a custom as an altered vehicle at least 25 years old and manufactured after 1948. Under the bill, kit cars and replica vehicles will be assigned a certificate of title bearing the same model year designation as the production vehicle they most closely resemble. The bill mirrors model legislation created by SEMA and recently enacted in Illinois, Missouri, Rhode Island, Montana, Hawaii, Maine and Colorado.

We Urge You to Contact Members of the Senate Transportation Committee (List Below) Immediately to Request Their Support for S.B. 124

</P>
<UL>
<LI>S.B. 124 provides specific registration and titling classes for street rods and customs, including kits and replicas.


<LI>S.B. 124 allows for the use of non-original materials and creates a titling criterion that assigns these vehicles the same model year designation as the production vehicle they most closely resemble.


<LI>S.B. 124 exempts street rods and customs from emissions inspections and exempt street rods and custom vehicles from a range of standard equipment requirements (only that equipment required in the model year that the vehicle resembles).


<LI>S.B. 124 provides that vehicles titled and registered as street rods and custom vehicles may only be used for occasional transportation, exhibitions, club activities, parades, tours, etc. and not for general daily transportation.


<LI>S.B. 124 permits the use of blue dot taillights on street rods and custom vehicles.</LI>[/list]


DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Senate Transportation Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to urge their support for S.B. 124. </P>


Please e-mail a copy of your letter to [email protected]. Thank you for your assistance.

If I were to re-register my vehicle from a vehicle used for general transportation to that of occassional use ala this 1965 Cobra kit car proposed legislation, will my annual insurance rate decrease?

The proposed legislation as described here seems to trade the freedom to drive my kit car whenever I want for an emissions and safety equipment exemption and a title that says "1965 FFR MK2 Roadster". I guess I'm missing the value of SB124.

Cheers,
bs

Hey RCS,

On the insurance question, we have to call. I had to send pictures to SPINAP, so they already know what my car is. BTW, I am really happy with SPINAP.

I understand, the only down side that I noticed in S.B. 124 is this wording and people need to read it -

A written statement that the vehicle will not be used for general daily transportation but will be maintained for occasional transportation, exhibitions, club activities, parades, tours, or other functions of public interest and similar uses.

Here is a link http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/Sections/Documents/loaddoc.aspx?FileName=_s0124__.html&DocumentType=Bill&BillNumber=0124&Session=2007

This is not automatic, you have to apply - To register a street rod or custom vehicle, the owner shall apply to the department by submitting a completed application form and providing:

(a) The license tax prescribed by s. 320.08(2) and a processing fee of $3

If people are happy with the current titling process they don't have to apply.

For me I work with the DOD, the "2004 Assembled Parts" from FL has already caused some problems just trying to get base stickers and trying figure out emissions criteria for the car in different states is a nightmare.

Thanks, Jim
