    Changes to Classic Car/Classic Rod plate requirements

    For those who operate in Washoe County with a classic plate, looks like they're cracking down on the use of the plate. I speculate this is in response to so many Hondas or whatever else running around with plates to bypass smog requirements.

    http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/7...BillName=SB152

    Far as I can see, the bill really sits around two main changes:

    -You'll need an actual working odometer that gets checked by an approved inspector 30 days before registration
    -You'll need an insurance policy on the vehicle that is specifically for a "classic or antique" vehicle.


    Figured this would be of some interest to members here, found it while I was looking for bad gun bills being proposed by this 2017 legislature's 120 days of tomfoolery...

    I think your link is wrong.

    The insurance policy thing is lame. I have classic plates on my CJ5. It passes smog just fine, but it was a PITA to get it out every year, drive it around for a week so I could put fresh gas in it before smogging it. Most years it is used less than 500 miles. Seems the perfect application for the classic plate. However people are abusing it.

    I wish we'd just go to a rolling 30yr exemption. Really how many 30 yr old cars do you see on the road in a typical day? Very few are daily drivers. Even if they are all gross polluters, their overall effect on air quality must be minimal.

    Link is good, goes to the overall status page showing where the bill currently is in the system. There's a link for "bill text" just above the bill history.

    The 30 year thing would make more sense to people like us, but goes against everything the greenies and liberals want to accomplish with their clean air and energy use policies. In fact, in some of the most liberal cesspools of the country, the long term goals are starting to get pushed. Oregon for example, just this month, proposed a $1,000 tax on any vehicle registration for a vehicle over 20 years old. Because, you know, those old cars put out more smog, and it'll save the environment if they force us to buy newly machined hybrids from a factory and lithium mine. Looks like the bill will be DOA, but it shows where they're headed.

    I'm okay with cracking down on the classic plate abuse. I see too many guys running around in Toyota mini trucks with classic plates and company logos on the side filled with tools using it for work.

    I too, agree that there is too much abuse of the plate. I would have a regular plate if I didn't have to use the classic plate to register my motorhome. It's a 1989 motorhome on a Ford E350 chassis. It has an 11,500#gvw, and didn't have to meet emissions at that time. It passed the emission tests with flying colors, but didn't pass the visual since the filler is not restricted for use with an unleaded nozzle. You can't buy regular gas anywhere in the US but the inspector failed it anyway. The NV DMV inspector also failed it, saying "convert it" or register it as a classic. Since it only gets about 3000 miles a year and is actually cost prohibitive to convert the filler neck, it's registered as a classic.

    That's where I'm at. The show car classics shouldn't have any issue with this, since they're all restoration jobs with classic insurance to begin with. The guys legitimately keeping some old iron on the road and just too poor to keep it updated and fresh are the ones who are going to suffer though, all because some jackasses wanted to cut the cats off of their Honda or some shit.
