Nothing to do with the licensing/DMV offices up here, the military simply doesn't want them on the road for the chance that it might come back to bite them in case there is an accident or something (ie. You get in an accident where someone gets hurt and the media comes out with it being a "dangerous old military vehicle"). We are looking at a few avenues to get around this. This is the first time they have done this for a military vehicle. What is stupid though, is that a US deuce can be registered with no problems (for the moment).The legality issue is interesting. Why Aren't they legal? Is it soley based on Canadian Motor Vehicle Registration issues, or is it because of the vehicle's nomenclature being Military in nature?
What about the Iltis. Is that leagl for street use?
I will have to agree with the military guys on there opinion but only to the extent of the iltis wasn't a very good combat vehicle. My brother has been in the military for 16yrs now and said the same thing when I mention I was looking to buy one. Good combat vehicle-No, Good in Private hands-Yes.I think if you go by former members of the military they would most likly say that all MV's were no good in there mind.
People are working on that issue, I'm not sure why Canada is being so difficult !!Does anyone know what the issue of registering ex military trucks are i called a registry office and they told me that a memo was sent out by transport Canada that no military trucks were to be registered for on road use.
