The governor of TN has an M37 and a deuce so i think we are safe as long as he is in office. All of the legislature that sponsered the bill are also MV owners. It just simply states here that MVs are not required to display tags and gives an actual defintion of the vehicle in state code.I also thought that just working on a better interpretation of the law that was passed might be in most of our own best interests. However, this tactic would require a fairly substantial monetary risk on someones part in going the court route. Not to mention a potential battle that could drag out for years.
I think a more effective approach for all of us would be closing ranks so to speak and presenting a united front. Also, it would be effective to join ranks with other groups such as car clubs, veterans organizations, fire departments, police unions, rescue organizations, disaster relief agencies etc. Anyone that has contact with "recycled" military vehicles or antique, restored or re-purposed vehicles. Organizations that keep history alive, re-enactors, groups and businesses that support or create various holiday parades and demonstrations, civic organizations, groups like the Smithsonian and local museums such as "Wings over the Rockies".
I will be writing letters to the local senators and representatives mentioned above. My recommendation whether you are in Colorado or not is to take pen in hand and get busy. Those in Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana, Missouri, etc hopefully have figured out that this scenario is coming to them as well. Please don't wait. The only way to keep history alive is to remind regular people about it and get them thinking. Those people and their children need to see it to think about it. That is the truly subtle and great thing about keeping these vehicles alive and moving in the public eye.
