Hello Mr. Traskaski,
Thank you for contacting our office. I've managed to get in touch with
an individual from the Department of Transportation to discuss your
She stated that you would be able to get your vehicle registered as long
as it passed Federal safety guidelines and you had proof of ownership.
It is my understanding that any military vehicle that was manufactured
in our country should be able to pass these guidelines.
You will need to print out a MV1 form and mail it in. Here is the link
for an online version:
The only problem that may arise is if the vehicle was manufactured
outside of the US. You would then have to have it physically inspected
to ensure it meets the safety guidelines.
Please let me know if you will need additional assistance.
I didn't notice the Pinz was a '72. The fed cutoff is 1970, I believe. Everything before that is grandfathered

John did say"I just learned this morning that the legs on which DOT is standing is a 1966 statute... that says, in part, No Military Vehicles will be granted titles in Wisconsin." Apparently, I am not a very good lawyer as I can find no reference to this wording (or anything similar) in any pubilshed Wisconsin legal source. If anyone knows where this comes from, please let me in on it and I will research it further.
Further bulletins as events warrant.

Dear Mr. Reinemann,
Thank you for sharing your concerns about the recent DMV ruling that rescinded registration of historic military vehicles. While I am disappointed with the result, the DMV has cited statutory authority in reaching their decision.
My office is in the process of researching various laws in other States and I plan to soon introduce legislation that would restore our citizens ability to legally license historic military vehicles for use on public roadways. Once the legislation is drafted, it will be circulated to all members of the legislature and I will be asking my colleagues to co-sponsor the bill. Support from legislators is obviously important, but support from members of the public will be absolutely critical for us to be successful.
My office will communicate with the historic vehicle community as the process moves forward.
Representative Steve Kestell
