Hawaii Street Rod/Replica Bill Signed Into Law

Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle signed a version of SEMA model legislation regarding street rods and replica vehicles into law.  The new law expands the definition of "street rod vehicle" and "street rod replica vehicle" to include vehicles manufactured before 1968 or kit cars manufactured after 1967 to resemble vehicles manufactured before 1968.  Previously, Hawaii only allowed vehicles manufactured prior to 1949 and replicas of these vehicles to be registered under these classes.
