    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    My nephew and family have finally had enough of Colorado's leftist leaning ideals and sold everything that was tied down and bought some lake front property in Montana. He told me it was a breeze to register "anything" in Montana, the highest priced plates were $200 for more expensive vehicles...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I had no problem getting my 1960 M101 trailer re-registered this year; it only has a 4 digit VIN, but it was a renewal, not a first time register deal. I do know a guy that last year went to re-register his previously licensed M101 trailer and they (DOR) made him get a state issued "homemade...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I'd say the short answer is "not good" and "not soon".....lots of history up thru the thread on what Colo. DOR has been doing about no longer registering previously titled and licensed military vehicles. The last thing that may have helped us got slammed when the "Chi-com flu" hit and the...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I've been on pins and needles since this whole mess started, my truck and trailer registration renewals came last month and I wondered what shenanigans they would try at DOR. No problem; sailed right thru without a hitch, I have a 5 digit VIN on a 1967 truck and a 4 digit VIN on a 1960 trailer.

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I'm a retired Trooper, still instruct at the academy and deal with lots of cops all the time and the guys think this is all "Bravo Sierra" and don't give a darn about stopping MV's and looking for registration anyway. Many of them are owners themselves, Vet's or at least fans and say drive...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Unless I understood it wrong; the last I heard on Colorado was that the bill had gone thru a couple of meetings, had some wording changed and that it was just kind of sitting on the shelf and that it would be automatically be passed without objection and the end of the current legislative...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Good morning everyone......here's my two or three cents worth again. Last year the Colorado legislature passed a new law that would allow "surplus military vehicles" to titled as off road use only as a result of something they did previously that screwed up a guy in the SE corned of the state...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Hey everyone, just checking in again to see if anyone has any "new" news for Colorado? The upcoming session for the legislature should be getting ready to start up right after the new year and I'm planning on writing and also calling all of my local politico's plus the original sponsors of the...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I still have questions in my mind about what if your vehicle isn't necessarily recognized as just a military vehicle? My first truck is an M715, there are more on the road in civilain attire than military drab, what about various Blazers, Dodge garden variety vehicles that came from uncle Sam...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    In the for what it's worth category I've been anxiously watching this thread to see where it ends up at. There are so many other types of vehicles that this could be twisted into effecting. I spent 30 years as a Colorado Sate Trooper here enforcing our MV laws, DOR regulations and the like. If...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I don't know right off who the new boss is at DOR, they all changed when the Dems took control of the whole state after the last election. It is DOR's interpretation and implementation of the law that is the issue. They have sent guidance to all the county clerks in the state as to the current...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I'm going to get a list of all the legislators in my area and after much editing and removing all the bad words, start making phone calls to their offices and send letters asking "what the heck"? I'm also thinking about contacting groups that may have a vested interest in this issue like the...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    FIRE MISSION !!! Being an artillery guy I didn't know how else to break the silence and break into any conversations. On my earlier post I made the mistake of "assuming" that the bureaucrats in Denver would abide by the new law as written and intended and that our historical military vehicles...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Somewhere we had another thread going on this topic a while back. Here's my take on this new legislation.It all started with a farm implement company in SE Colorado that buys / sells surplus military vehicles for agricultural usage and modifications to them for that purpose. The bill defines...
