Anyone from Virginia should send letters opposing VA House Bill 288. Wink

Wow, it seems like Pa's annexing Va, eh?


addendum 45.2~anitque vehicles should have drivetrain pulled and be put on display in owners front lawn. The use of floodlights shining on said vehicles will be addressed in an upcoming 'eyesore' bill awaiting the legislature.

Good luck down there man Confused .

Looks like we won this battle. Wink

The following is from Jason Tolleson with SEMA:
-----------------------------

URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (FINAL UPDATE)

Virginia Bill to Restrict Antique Vehicles Dead for the Year

Virginia legislation (H.B. 288) that threatened to restrict pleasure driving of antique motor vehicles to a range not more than 50 miles from the owner’s residence has been withdrawn by the bill’s sponsor. The bill also sought to clarify that antique vehicles may not be used for work-related travel, while legislators considered including antique cars in the state’s mandatory annual safety inspection program, claiming that many are unsafe “junkers.”

In a message to SEMA, Virginia Delegate Danny Marshall said, “Thanks for your e mail. I am not trying to hurt the person who has a 1968 Dodge Hemi Cuda, but the person who has a 25+ year old Dodge Dart that the brakes do not work. We will work to make this happen. The bill is off the docket for this year.”

Congratulations to all the Virginia car clubs and councils, individual enthusiasts and members of the SEMA business community who worked so tirelessly to derail this bill. As the message from Delegate Marshall indicates, we will need to be equally vigilant next year to avert unnecessary and unfair changes to the Virginia antique statute.

Congratulations again!

Isn't that why we have state inspections? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

It has nothing to do with safety and everything to do with revenue. It costs less to register a vehicle as an antique than a normal registration does. Also remember that there is no car tax paid on vehilces that old. This was simply a ploy to force people who own and want to drive a classic to pay more money to do so. In addition, if it had passed and been on the books, they could then ticket people for violating the statute...again, more revenue.

Greed in it's purest form...

What the phuckers didn't count on was almost every vehicle related club in the state screaming at them "pass that and we'll vote yer asses out". Mr. Green

I'm sure next year they'll try to hide a similar proposal in some other obscure bill. Rolling Eyes

Sometimes I think that the government forgets they work FOR the people. We can vote them in but we can also vote them out!!
