Minnesota offers narrow definition of classic
Chapter 168.10 of the Minnesota Statutes 2005 makes for surprisingly good reading. This section on the registration of "collector vehicles" contains language we haven't seen anywhere else--aside from the Classic Car Club of America.
To get a "Classic Car" license plate, your car must have been built between 1925 and 1948 and be "designated by the registrar of motor vehicles as a classic car because of its fine design, high engineering standards, and superior workmanship." To uphold those standards, the state seems to have created its own list of Full Classics, similar but not identical to the CCCA list. Of course, even if your REO Royale Custom 8 is granted such a license by the state, they still consider it an eyesore and require that it be stored indoors or "screened from ordinary public view by means of a fence, shrubbery, rapidly growing trees or other appropriate means."
We're glad to hear that Minnesota is taking the lead in the fight against the plague of unsightly La Salles, Duesenbergs and Marmons rotting in people's front yards.
