URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT
New Mexico Introduces Bill to Ease Titling and Registration of Replica Cars
A version of SEMA model legislation (H.B. 510) to ease the process by which replica cars are titled and registered has been introduced. H.B. 510 defines "replica car" as a motor vehicle that is assembled from a pre-fabricated chassis and body kit purchased from a replica car manufacturer.
Please Contact Members of the New Mexico House Transportation and Public Works Committee (Contact Info Below) to Request Support for H.B. 510
- H.B. 510 creates a specific registration and titling class for replicas and provides that the model year is the year of manufacture of the model or brand that a replica car most resembles in outward appearance as described by the manufacturer in published information.
- H.B. 510 provides that a replica car is exempt from a state or local law or ordinance requiring periodic vehicle or vehicle emission inspections and testing.
- H.B. 510 provides that replica cars shall be maintained only for occasional transportation, exhibitions, vehicle club activities, parades, tours and similar limited uses and not for general or daily transportation.
- H.B. 510 provides that a replica car need not have equipment that was not required by state or federal law in its model year.
- H.B. 510, if enacted into law, would become effective on July 1, 2015.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the New Mexico House Transportation and Public Works Committee by phone or e-mail to request their support for H.B. 510
