    It sounds like the governor vetoed a bill causing ALL former MVs to be pulled off the road, not just HMMWVs.

    I'm quickly learning that people view former MVs the way some people view guns- "If it's black and scary looking, outlaw it no matter what the capabilities or intended purpose is."
    We've got people in my area joyriding in retired firetrucks on weekends. These trucks are HUGE, but because they have street tires and they're painted white, red or green, no one is challenging their use on public roads.

    As far as I'm concerned, the only difference between an old cargo truck and an old fire truck is the paint job and 6x6 capability. These legislators need to get a grip.
    No problem registering a deuce with regular plates , they are more than happy to the $500 every year.

    Mostly it’s Humvees but I have heard of duces Being refused as well. If it’s a common manufacture right now they have no way of determining if it’s a former military vehicle or not so you are able to register it. If they ever figure out a way to determine it was a previous military vehicle then you may run into issues. This is why we want to get the law changed. Our Senator was very surprised it was vetoed and will be working on a new legislation for this year.

    That is untrue regarding the Deuce. We just had someone just recently advise that they tried to register one that was purchased from Wisconsin and was only given an orv title so it is no longer just the Hmmwv

    The veto did not change anything existing.

    Maybe he should try registering a DEUCE instead.

    HOUSE BILL No. 5639

    Which did not get vetoed, allows for vehicles titled as ORV only, to be titled as on road upon verification of the required on road equipment. assigned PA 680'18 with immediate effect. This can be used to get those ORV HUMVEE's road legal here.

    EDIT: my 1st view of the bill had the bottom of the page cut off, I did not see the last few lines excluding surplus military ORV designation. Leaving only the option of building your own kit car humvee for on road use.

    It says, except military surplus vehicles designated by the federal government as off road use only. I'm sure that means humvee's are excluded to them.

    A lot of people also don't realize if you put a 2 inch body lift in to add a turbo , it doesn't qualify as a historic as a historic vehicle ,They must remain in stock configuration to qualify for historic plates.

    Where does it say that? There are so many hot rods and modified cars at the shows with historic plates. I have two plates myself that are historic. Nobody asked or checked.
