That's what I meant when I said:
Sounds a little overbearing. My insurance doesn't do that and my odometer didn't work for the first year I had the Jeep anyway. I don't put many miles on it to begin with but an arbitrary limit like that would be frustrating. My tags expire next year so I think I'm going street rod since it'll be 25. Plus those tags are way cooler than historic tags.

Street rod tags flex better off road

Just to help clear up some confusion in this thread, I have Maryland "historic" tags on an old Mazda that I used to use for drag racing and hardly ever drive anymore. My Jeep is an '06, so obviously it doesn't qualify yet. There are NO mileage or time restrictions on historic tags from the state. The ONLY thing you have to do to get the tags is prove that the vehicle is at least 20 model years old if the model is no longer in production (if the model is still in production (like say a Ford Mustang) it must be 25 model years old. I do not know if they would consider a YJ wrangler to be still in production since a JK is still technically considered a Wrangler - keep in mind I was getting the tags for an old Mazda 323. After that, the only thing you have to do is sign a waiver that says that the vehicle receiving the tags is not your primary means of transportation (i.e. not a daily driver). Then you pay the fee and pick up the tags.

I have heard that if a cop notices you driving a vehicle with historic tags frequently that they can pull you over for it - for example if they sit in the same spot every day and notice you drive by every day, but I don't know if that's true but the tags don't really stick out so I can't imagine it would be a huge deal.

I don't know about your insurance company, but I have Progressive and I called to notify them that I was putting historic tags on the car and asked if that changed anything with their policy and the girl laughed and said they really don't care and it doesn't change anything on their end, but I can't speak for any other insurance companies.

There is absolutely no requirement for whatever you were saying about models being in production. Not sure where you got that info but it's wrong.

Why does it feel this conversation is going in circles?

From the MVA website:

Historic:
  • To qualify as a historic vehicle, your vehicle must not have been substantially altered, remodeled, or remanufactured from its original construction, and must be 20 model years or older.
  • A historic vehicle 60 years or older may obtain a one-time, permanent, non-transferable registration. This vehicle registration does not qualify for specialty plates.
  • Vehicles classified as historic certifies the vehicle will be maintained for use in exhibitions, club activities, parades, tours, occasional transportation and similar uses.
  • The vehicle owner further certifies the vehicle will not be used for general daily transportation or primarily for the transportation of passengers or property on highways.

Street Rod:
  • To qualify as a street rod, your vehicle must be 25 years old or older and must have been substantially altered from the manufacturer's original design.
  • Vehicles classified as street rod certifies the vehicle will be maintained for use in exhibitions, club activities, parades, tours, occasional transportation and similar uses.
  • The vehicle owner further certifies the vehicle will not be used for general daily transportation or primarily for the transportation of passengers or property on highways.

That whole production model thing used to be in there but was taken out in the last 5 years.

I got my tags about 3 years ago and it was still in the paperwork that I was given when I got my tags, but if that website is correct then apparently they did take it out.

Also one last thing - it does mention in there that the vehicle can't be "significantly altered", however you are not required to have any sort of inspections done on the car so I don't know that it would really be a problem if you had a big lift or whatever. I know my Mazda has a ton of aftermarket work on it but they're so uncommon that anyone casually looking at it wouldn't realize that it's not bone stock except for the big Auto-Meter tach on the dash.

I think MSP would notice 37"s on a 'historic' tagged CJ7 . . .
