Michigan New Military Vehicle Bill Proposal

View attachment Amendment to MICHIGAN VEHICLE CODE Act 300 of 1949.docxWith everything going on about ex military vehicles, I received news that Senator Hopgood is willing to help.
So I'm passing this on, hopefully I have this posted in the right place, if not please move it
Better have an Historic plate than no plate at all.


All Michigan Historic Military Vehicle Owners.
State Senator HopGood is spearheading a bill in Lansing that
would create a new class of “Historic Military Vehicles” whose titling would
parallel our “authenticated” antique vehicles and plates issued by the
Secretary of State.
Special class, special plate, $35.00 lifetime fee, no updates
required for emissions, passive restraints, etc.
The vehicle would use a collector plate (we have a design
done and it cool as ****) and not to be used for everyday use, but to be
used for exhibitions, parades, car/military club activities, swap meets,
maintenance and testing, tours and similar activities. It would require
insurance at all times.
It would cover both foreign built and domestic for the Kubel gang,
Pinzgauers, British wheeled armor, etc.
If you live in Michigan, please call the Senator’s office at
517-373-7800 and politely inform his office staff that you support the Bill (no
number yet) and wish it become law in Michigan.
They might ask for your address so they have an understanding
of where the support is coming from and the work with the respective legislator
in those parts of the state.
You can call or visit the office of your state representative
and state senator and tell them directly that you support the bill.
The time has come for us to speak up.

Please let us know how this works out . I have been thinking about something similar for my state . They have every other plate so a plate for MV's would be great .

When you copy and paste to black type it makes it really hard to read on a OD background.
I fixed this one for you .

Also I want to see a copy of the Bill before I support it , some of these bills to get HMMWV's registered are hurting deuce and 5 ton owners.


attached 1st section showing excluded in august.

Thank you porkysplace, you the man.
Just to clarify , the reason I want to see it first is I won't support a bill that limits use of MV's that have been sold without any restrictions and can be plated however you want now , so HMMWV's that were sold with a "OFF ROAD ONLY" clause can be registered.
1.) I don't feel CUCV, 5 TON, M37, M38, M35, ect. should give up use of our trucks
so HMMWV's can be register when buyers agreed to the "OFF ROAD ONLY' clause when they bought them.
2.) The state will lose money considering if you want to use a M35 for hauling the plates cost $500 a year if you register legally to use for general use.

I also I read some debate in another today about how will they know a CUCV is military vehicle as they are just pick-ups and K5 blazers?
Well that is easy and probably already in the system software as the 5th digit of the VIN is "D" which designates "military 4 x 4".

Bump Proposed Bill is attached
I'm not really sure I like it , there are some things that are alright but others that are not.
As it is wrote Must be 25 years old , so nothing newer than 1993 at this point.
It also has all the restrictions of current classic plates ( no cargo ect. )
But also does not allow for unlimited driving during august like all other historic plated cars are allowed to do.

They did do a got job on the manufactures I think still got to spend more in depth study of that part.

Since this is a bill that restricts a already restrictive historic plate law is the majority of owners happy with and going to accept that all MV's currently registered as historic can no longer drive anytime in august like they now can?
As written it is taking rights away from currently registered MV's so MV's sold as "OFF ROAD ONLY' can by registered with more restrictions than other historic vehicles .

I don't support it as written , but as long as I can pay my $500 a year and use my deuce how I want I'm not totally against it.
See proposed bill below ( most people don't dig for links)

@porkysplace
I will forward your concerns to editors of the document
It's the beginning of it, so I am certain that they will be a few amendment's before it is introduced
This is not about one person, but about everybody who owns a MV, all comments are welcome.

This is the reply from one of the editor's

Hello with regards to the August portion we were waiting for revision to come back from the Senators office so we can tell them to keep that in there. We didn’t want to just bombard them with everything at once. Obviously this is if people want to register it as historic this should not harm you from getting a normal plate in my personal opinion but that is my opinion only and if you haven’t already registered as a regular vehicle you should be able to do so just like I have my 69 Corvette that I could register that with a normal plate but instead I have it registered with Historic plate so it’s the same concept with military one

It looks like we will have wait to see the final draft. But one thing I do know about politicans is never trust their opinion , because the next guy that wants a different opinion they will tell them their opinion matches what they want to here.
Somebody went out of their way to exclude MV's from the august no restriction part , other wise it would be a copy and paste of the current law with MV's added .

Only reasoning I can see to excluding from August "open" usage might be the disdain frequently expressed by some "classic car" and "hot rod" folks toward the collectible military vehicles at events. Have experienced it a bunch myself and would not be surprised if it had roots in that mindset. I know that last year the "heavy vehicles" were excluded from participation in the Woodward Dream Cruise because "they were too dangerous" even though it was a corvette that caused a bunch of trouble earlier.

My deuce is registered historical in Michigan. Historical insurance as well and the plate is in the glovebox.
I would think anyone with a tan truck wouldn't want a OD plate , but it really don't matter since like your's there is no need to display a plate on MV's.
