Under The Hood

Washington street rod, custom vehicle bill moves to house



Washington Street Rod and Custom Vehicle Bill Approved by Rules Committee; Moves Next to Vote by Full House

We’re almost there!  SEMA model legislation to create a vehicle titling and registration classification for street rods and custom vehicles was approved by the House Rules Committee.  The bill will now be considered on the floor for a vote by all House members.  The measure has already been approved by the Washington Senate.  The bill (S.B. 5585) defines a street rod as an altered vehicle manufactured before 1949 and a custom as an altered vehicle at least 30 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. 

We Urge You to Contact All Washington House Members (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for S.B. 5585

• S.B. 5585 provides specific registration and titling classes for street rods and customs, including kits and replicas. 
• S.B. 5585 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.
• S.B. 5585 exempts street rods and customs from a range of standard equipment requirements (only that equipment required in the model year that the vehicle resembles) and emissions inspections.
• S.B. 5585 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.
• S.B. 5585 permits the use of blue dot taillights.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact all members of the Washington House to request their support for S.B. 5585. 

Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.org.  Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts.  Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.
