Overview: A version of SEMA model legislation (A.B. 128) has been reintroduced to create vehicle registration classifications for street rods and custom vehicles. This bill defined a street rod as an altered vehicle manufactured before 1948 and a custom as an altered vehicle at least 25 years old and manufactured after 1948. This bill has been introduced in the New Jersey Legislature in several previous legislative sessions. A.B. 128 awaits consideration in the Assembly Transportation and Independent Authorities Committee.
