UPDATE: Hawaii Advances Bill to Allow Titling and Registration of Newer Special Interest Vehicles

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact lawmakers to request their support for this proposal:

Overview: Hawaii has introduced SAN-supported legislation (H.B. 480) to allow the titling and registration of special interest vehicles that are at least thirty-five years old or modified to resemble a vehicle that is at least thirty-five years old. Currently, the term “special interest vehicles" includes a street rod vehicle and a street rod replica vehicle, which were manufactured before 1968 or manufactured after 1967 to resemble a vehicle manufactured before 1968. The bill amends these definitions to be based on the age of the vehicle or the parts used, rather than a certain year. Such vehicles would be required to meet the safety standards that were in effect at the time of manufacture. The bill passed the House and now awaits consideration in the Senate Committee on Judiciary.
