    Thank you all for your work on this. You had a lot of good info in there. I have been battling for a couple of years on a 923A2. The State Patrol inspector disallowed it because of no FMVSS sticker. Even though it is over 25 years old. You are giving good ideas on how Historical military vehicle language might be added to our Collector Vehicle language. Thanks again for your work on this. It would be nice to have the option for "all" former military vehicles to be legal to drive for historic or collecting purposes. Here are a few pictures from Nov. 11, 2018 at the bottom of the Capital Steps in Olympia, supporting their Veterans Day ceremony. Pick out the truck that is not legally licensed.

    Hemming's has a article on their website today about the governors veto of the military vehicle registration bill . After reading the article all I can add is what a mess for military vehicle owners in Michigan . Talk about over reach by the state . One reason given was MV's don't have a 17 digit VIN , well , 17 digit VIN's did not start until the 70's , does that make your 65 Mustang unable to be registered ??? I hope this gets fixed under the new administration . I guess I am LUCKY????? to be in NYS , our DMV criteria is a little different , kinda comes down to will that be cash or credit !!@! they want your money . Actually I was going to use some of your information and try to get NYS to issue a Former Military Vehicle plate , we shall see . good luck , Bob K

    The 17 digit V.I.N. number isn't a issue here in Michigan the only FMV's they won't register are HMMWV"S as, stated in the Governors letter the main reason he vetoed it was
    the "Off Road Use Only " on the sales agreements .

    I am having a memory lapse here LOL !!! why do they have that "off road only" on the HMMWV's ???? they are no better or worse than any other MV that gets sold.Maybe the fix is to get that removed , but I am sure that is easier said then done

    That is basically a hold harmless agreement so they do not get sued if someone were to take one off a lot and go right on the road without performing any type of inspection or maintenance. It was a bad way of doing it but that is how they did it.

    Pretty sure they aren't registering anything over 25yrs old as historic is all 1040 was about. Doesn't apply to every day tags.

    That reads like it was written by CNN , when the governors letter only states HMMWV's as his reason to veto it.

    I'm a little unclear on the article. Were all sorts of MV owners receiving letters revoking their title and tags or just HMMWV owners? Or any owner with a vehicle having an AM General data plate?
    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.
