The type of bureaucratic nonsense you are seeing IN Kansas & Wisconson is just a sign of the times......the scenario is a common & well known one in which a well-placed politico issues an "edict" from their "corridor of power" to advance their own agendas. This action usually seems to occur after the subject gets incredibly bad advice, & the "action" taken is always some form of indulgence of their instincts for political survival or advancement. As an example, some years ago, a freshman representative of our State Legislature got some VERY bad advice & was convinced to introduce a VERY unpopular bill advocating the total ban of "assault weapons" in our county. To say that cool heads prevailed in this instance is actually an understatement.....not only was this initiative blocked in committee, but the folks in Tallahassee actually went a step further, passing legislation that, in summary, declares that ALL future firearms legislation will be issued ONLY by State Government, for the ENTIRE State of Florida....with some minor exceptions, of course. The bottom line for any of our fellow HMV enthusiasts ANYWHERE their rights are threatened is activism. The thoughtful friend on this threat who wisely cautioned against over-reaction needs to be listened to closely. After that, by all means be DECISIVE, act fast but don't just go to your state's elected officials in protest.....bring them a SOLUTION to the problem as well !!! Model any proposed legislation that will preserve your rights after ours here in Florida, for example. In Florida, our elected officals & DMV are VERY good to us vintage vehicle collectors, especially those who collect "ancient" vehicles, military vehicles & fire apparatus. The formula used is actually quite basic: the year of the vehicle's manufacture determines the safety rules that apply to the vehicle, as long as the vehicle has not been modernized/heavily modified. Thus, if you have a 1942 GPW with the original engine from Ford, or an "vintage type" L-134 engine, you're good !!! If you decide to drop a modern 350 in it (GASP !!!.....), then you must add seat belts, turn signals, two tails lights & all the rest of whatever other equipment is on the books at the time for the newest vehicles. There is ALOT of room for interpretation in the favor of the collector/owner in this legislation a well. I'm no lawyer, but that is my understanding from a politically active member of our MVPA Chapter who has actually drafted legislation for vintage vehicle owners. This seems to be the fairest way to deal with everyone, regardless of where their interest lay in the vintage vehicle hobby. Also, interestingly, you ARE allowed to operate a fully tracked vehicle on the road in Florida. It just has to be under 80,000 GVW, not more than 8 feet 6 inches wide & it must have either rubber track or good track pads on the metal shoes. Again, the year of manufacture determines the rest. The point is that it CAN be done legally, safely & to the eternal credit of military vehicle enthusiasts, should someone choose to do so !!!!! Do your research, & take the fight to your capitols. I hope this will help someone in their pursuit of what's right. Best of luck !!!
