Hello everyone!!

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but this site gets a lot of traffic.

If you live in FL, please email these congressmen and voice your support for this bill.

If you don't live in FL - do it anyways. We need all the help we can get, and the more states that adopt this bill, the more will follow -

This is an important piece of legislation for the future of the hobby/business we all love so much.

The next hearing is scheduled for tomorrow, March 8th. Please email this people.

Here is a little info on the bill:

SEMA model legislation to amend the vehicle titling and registration classifications for street rods and create a classification for custom vehicles has been reintroduced in the Florida House. The bill (H.B. 545) defines a street rod as an altered vehicle manufactured before 1949 and a custom as an altered vehicle at least 25 years old and manufactured after 1948. Under the bill, kit cars and replica vehicles will be assigned a certificate of title bearing the same model year designation as the production vehicle they most closely resemble. The bill mirrors model legislation created by SEMA and recently enacted in Illinois, Missouri, Rhode Island, Montana, Hawaii, Maine and Colorado.


* H.B. 545 provides specific registration and titling classes for street rods and customs, including kits and replicas.

* H.B. 545 allows for the use of non-original materials and creates a titling criterion that assigns these vehicles the same model year designation as the production vehicle they most closely resemble.

* H.B. 545 exempts street rods and customs from emissions inspections and exempt street rods and custom vehicles from a range of standard equipment requirements (only that equipment required in the model year that the vehicle resembles).

* H.B. 545 provides that vehicles titled and registered as street rods and custom vehicles may only be used for occasional transportation, exhibitions, club activities, parades, tours, etc. and not for general daily transportation.

* H.B. 545 permits the use of blue dot taillights on street rods and custom vehicles.



Just copy and paste these email addresses into the "TO" line of your email. Put " Please Support HB 545" as the subject. And write whatever you like in the body.

You can do them all at once with just one email - cut and paste them all together!
