Minnesota Bill to Ease Process for Designating Classic Cars Sent to Governor

Legislation (H.F. 3072) to provide for a program that will allow classic car status to be determined from nationally recognized standards and guides was approved by the full Senate.  Having already been passed by the House, the bill now moves to the governor for his signature and enactment into law.  Under the current system, this status must be designated by the state through a time-consuming amendment to the law.  

We Urge You to Contact Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton (Contact Info Below) Immediately To Request His Support for H.F. 3072

  • The classic car plate is available to “any motor vehicle manufactured between and including the years 1925 and 1948, and designated as a full classic car because of its fine design, high engineering standards, and superior workmanship, and owned and operated solely as a collector's item. . . ”
  • Classic vehicles are issued a single number plate bearing the inscription "Classic Car," "Minnesota," and the registration number or other combination of characters and is valid without renewal as long as the vehicle is in existence in Minnesota.
  • H.F. 3072 will speed up the process by which Minnesota vehicles can attain classic car status.
