Historic tags...?

Anyone have historic tags on their jeep? Ive been looking into it just so that I don't have to get emissions tests done. The application says the,"The vehicle is 20 calendar years or older and has not been substantially altered, remodeled or remanufactured from its original construction", wonder what they mean by substantially altered?

Lift, tires, etc.

Historic tags limit you to a certain mileage per year, judged by your insurance company. Historic and Street rod tags are supposed to be just for 'show' vehicles, etc. MSP can be sticky about it if they feel like it, but that's can be just about anything.

Street Rod tags are for those vehicles that are 'radically or substantially altered' from the factory.

We run street rod tags on this:

Awesome rig, defiantly highly altered, I am more curious about not having to go through emissions. I passed it last year but they were being total a**es about things, gauges not working, etc..

Street rods also have to be more than 25 years old compared to 20 for historic. Hubdeep, how did you get street rod tags on an 87? Or is that not your YJ?

It's the wife's trail rig. It is tagged as a 1979 CJ7.

87s can be tagged as street rods next year. Just realized that. Is there any benefit to street rod vs. historic? I could make an argument for mine for either category.

I don't think there is a benefit, except for the fact that a rig riding on 37"s won't be as 'suspicious' looking driving with a street rod tag vs a historic tag. I ran historic tags on our '64 CJ5. It was stock and did not raise any eyebrows. My '87 could be historic, but with the 36" Irok's it would be hard to make the case to the State Trooper that YJ's came off the assembly line looking like that.

Do you really think a trooper would pull you over for just that reason? Its not like you would be speeding but I imagine if they wanted to be a dick they could and just start filling out tickets.. I'm debating on calling my insurance company to see what they consider mileage for historic tags..

I have never heard anything about mileage. Some people also seem to think you can only drive a historic vehicle on the weekends. Read the rules and all it says is something to the effect of it can't be your daily driver, can't use it for a work vehicle, etc. No mileage, no days of the week, none of that.

its funny how different the laws are state to state. ive got antique plates here in va and basically all it is restricted to is annual mileage, and its use on public roads is for road tests, club events, or things like that. not commuting

It's not mileage limits as per the MVA.

Those limits were set up by our insurance company. 1k a year. They wanted to know when the 'historic' vehicle would be driven, where (shows, meets), how often, etc. They give us a call every 11-12 months requesting mileage.

That's what I meant when I said:

Jason what insurance do you have? Allstate when I was with my parents and Progressive on my own never inquired about mileage.

I drive a Jeep with a street rod tag when ever the weather is above 70 and not raining.

State Farm.

Now they have not said anything about our Street Rod tags. They were only concerned when we had the '64 CJ5 tagged historic.
