State by State "Fender Laws"

I was originally going to ask about "Fender Laws" for Virginia, but after I did a search, it appears that the Fender Law topic has only been covered for the state of California. That being the case, I thought I'd expand the question to all the states.

So, what are the "Fender Laws" related to hot rods in your state?

Fender law

Washington state: Street rods and kit vehicles which are more than forty years old and are owned and operated primarily as a collector's item NEED NOT be equipped with fenders when the vehicle is used and driven during fair weather on well-maintained, hard-surfaced roads. Info taken from Washington State Register 98-04-052, Jan. 1998.

Montana

not required if vehicle was manufactured prior to 1949 or was built to resemble a vehicle manufactured before 1949, including a kit vehicle intended to resemble a vehicle manufactured before 1949; and
(b) has been altered from the manufacturer's original design or has a body constructed from nonoriginal materials.

Wisconsin

Others from WI might have additions or corrections to this but here is my understanding of the regs. (I posted this in another thread a couple weeks ago so this is a copy):

The rule in WI is that anything available from the factory in the year of production is legal to build/run on the highway today. Since model A's and T's were available from the factory as just a basic frame (individual coach builders added their own bodies), it is technically acceptable to run fenderless today (since you could buy them without fenders and/or bodies back then). At least that is my understanding from discussions with street rodders and classic car restorers. Whether that is the actual reasoning or not, fenderless cars are quite abundant in WI. Either the above explaination is correct or the police simply look the other way when they see a fenderless car.

The real problem is we also have a LOT of snow and rain in WI. So you run fenderless at your own peril (it's no fun to turn a corner in a fenderless roadster during a rain storm as you watch the rooster tail off the front tires come shooting right into the passenger compartment.) My roadster is fenderless and I intend to pretty much get off the road and sit out any rain storms I encounter. It's just part of the fun.

As far as I know, Iowa has no fender or bumper laws. 1948 and older cars do not require a front license plate either.
