Disturbing Va legislation

They are trying to limit our cars to 50 miles from residence.

Do you know if that applies to vehicles that are actually registered as antiques or to any vehicle older than 19$$ whatever it is?

If it does cover all vehivle registration and not just antique, vote with your tax dollars and move out of the state. Let your representative know exactly why when you do it.

As I understand the summary, you can't drive your antique to work or more than 50 miles from your home. So if you drive your antique more than 50 miles to work, you are a criminal!

Who is the pinhead that thought of that and, more importantly, WHY?

And can they even legally tell you where and how far you can drive anything anyway?

Wacko Environmentalist are behind it. They think that these old cars are spewing out tremendous amounts of deadly toxins and by limiting the miles driven by a relatively handful of cars, they are saving every living organism. My old emission control-less/cat converter-less vehicle will pass any sniff test that a new smogger will pass but they do not want to believe it. So let's just tighten the screws down on the minority vehicles to keep the teeth in other environmental issues!

Wash your mouth out, Trees. Now go stand in the corner for bad mouthing wackos.

I like trees's reply, damn wackos!
If thats the reason, it seems stupid to me.
How often do you go to a car show or rod run and see a car with smoke pouring out of the tailpipes?
The only older cars Ive seen with alot of smoke coming out, are ones that are just peices of junk.
Heck, some of the newer vehicles smoke worse than alot of the older ones. Just last week I saw an old cadillac without a hint of smoke, and next to it was a 90 something minivan with a cloud coming out!
I bet the emmisions are worse about those enviromentalists farts after eating all that tofu!

Do not register it as an antique, and drive it as much as you want.

If the vehicle is on the road as a daily driver shouldn't it pay the same taxes/road use fees.?
I have two vehicles that see less than 1000 mi. a year ea. one is a 88 the other is a 99, I can't get any reduction in fees because of it.

Seriously, this is an unfair denial of reasonable accomodations and rights of vehicle enthusiasts and collectors in VA. As an example I own a 1964 gto that I've put about 10,000 miles on since 1989, and i attend a several shows a year a few are more than fifty miles from home, am i now a criminal. I have collector car insurance which limits the usage and milaege annually.
There is other legislation being considered concerning aftermarket exhaust that concerns us. I'm writing letters,joined sema[free],stuff i never did before, hopefully there is a few others that may do the same. These old cars represent a significant amount of time, thought, and money.
Thanks for reading, bud

I will admit the last thing I want is more government involvement in our rodding and or lives. Maybe I have a different perspective/opinion. I do not know if it is the case or not but most likely when the antique plates/registration laws were written the thought was the vehicles with the designation would be limited use, minimal mileage, fair weather drivers. Instead you probably have a segment that drives these vehicles on a daily basis. It like many other things, if you give an inch people will take a mile. Not (in my opinion) that the majority of antique plate holders do this.
Then again, it could be that you have a bunch of hard a-- State Legislators that hate old cars and would just as soon see them disappear.
