    Default Is it time yet to have that discussion? Hmmwv discrimination.

    I see the sticky threads on here about censoring certain topics, so if the site is still uncomfortable with this discussion. But, please hold your fire for one second. I am posting this to say something that needs to be known, and maybe (or not) adress it. Hopefiully we can continue this discussion and keep it civil.
    Last time i went into the DMV here in the communist state of NY, to renew my m1088 registration, the kind lady behind the desk informed me, the DMV is putting out memo's abot refusing any military vehicle titling and registration. Citing "non-conforming vin#s and lack of following dot standards". Also, current titles as they are fought, are going to be revoked. The guy at the dmv office for inspection and safety said they got a letter from AM General saying they did not want hmmwv's on the roads in the US. Waiting to hear back from them to confirm that. We are loosing the right to register vehicles here in NY. And its not because of people "poking the bear". We are going to have to do something actively to fix this. At least at a state by state level. Who knows, maybe Trump can help us out! We cant just keep ignoring it anymore, because it no longer just affects hummers, it is now affecting everyone. Any ideas on what we can do? Have someone write up some legislation? Anybody know a good lawyer?

    Best advice anyone can give you is - MOVE. The NY legislature has already proven they have no feelings for the sanctity of life so why should they care about your military vehicle. Get out while you still can.

    I would say come on over to Jersey, but the Democratic people's republic of NJ is going downhill too. Pretty soon I think if kids are playing and do finger guns they will end up in jail lol.

    The DMV in Dunkirk. Mine is a 94. They guy from albany was a complete Richard. He was offended i even mentioned the word hummer. He said they would NEVER register a number, because the gun was too short. I said, a lot of classic cars have a much shorter gun. Then he said it was because it dindt have airbags. Then i told him my 96 chevy didnt have airbags either. Thats when,he got really irritated and refered me to the legal department. I can move, but that still leaves a lot 9f people here tied down with family or financial circumstances. I just think, something should,be done to force them to register the vehicles that meet all safety requirements for the year they were built like all other cars.

    The simple fact is, they wont do it because of. Feelings. No rational reason.

    Thats crazy. Here in the nation of El Norte, they have a convenient form to fill out to register Military Vehicles for on road use. They accept the MIL-STD-1180B Safety Interface standard. They have no issue with the short VIN. I had everything legal within 24 hours of getting my SF-97
