Trans 123 seek remove from usage many vehicles currently operated legally and safely in WI due to being classified as NON CONFORMING to a 1968 vehicle safety act. The first target of this proposed legislation is Historic Military Vehicles (HMV). Please help us continue to honor and memorized the veterans who used these vehicles my allowing them to "keep rolling" in parades such as the 4th of July parades, Veterans Day parades, events to raise funds at VFW, American Legion post, other civic events state wide.
This does NOT stop at HMVs it targets many of the "custom" cars that are currently operated, like seeing the 57's Chevys, custom mustangs, kit cars etc? Well these are targeted also as they could be deemed "NON CONFORMING".


Some of you already know that the State DOT has proposed a new law that eliminates many Historic Military Vehicles from WI. I’m sending this out to everyone we know and asking (begging) you and your fellow collectors to get involved!!!! Please pass this on to every car and truck collector you know. Tell the veterans groups we parade with, Tell the schools we display for, tell the municipal parade organizers we support.

Briefly, the WI DOT has issued a proposal called “Trans 123”. It seeks to restrict or eliminate specialty and collector vehicles from WI roads.
We are urging everyone with an interest in the old car hobby to attend the hearing next Wed in Madison and to call their legislators to oppose Trans 123 in its current format.
Collectors with pre 1968 vehicles need to help too. This will BAN many collector and hobbyist vehicles.
Call your legislators and tell them we oppose the Trans 123 proposal for four reasons.
1)It seeks to define ANY vehicle made after 1968 that is not 100% compliant with the NHTSA, as designed for “off road” only. This is too broad and will eliminate many collector vehicles in the Hobbyist or Historic Military vehicle groups.
2)The proposal is far too broad and seeks to provide a single broad definition that affects too many collector situations
3)The proposal wording is very difficult to read or understand.
4)The proposal seeks to provide for public safety, but bans many post 1968 vehicles including Historic Military vehicles. These HMV’s have been legally registered and operated by collectors in WI since 1968 with no significant traffic safety issues that would support any call by the public to ban them.
There is a hearing on this NEXT WEEK WEDNESDAY 7/29/2009 in Madison see the attached.. They are trying to slide this in under the radar..!!!

Here is the link to the details of the proposal and the hearing.

Please get the word out. We need to at least get this slowed down and let more people have input. Call your legislators and get them involved. Tell them we need their help to voice opposition to this rule for the 4 reasons.
