Wyoming Street Rods/Customs:  

Summary of SEMA-Model Street Rod/Custom Vehicle Bill

Several years ago when I first became president of the Wyoming Street Rod Association (WSRA), there were small nuisance issues such as no front license plate and blue dot tail lights kept popping up.  These alone were not of enough significance to warrant any legislation.  But as the need for licensing and titling kept getting more intense there was something that needed to be done.  Then Representative Pat Childers entered the picture along with SEMA.  SEMA had an outline model of legislation set up so with Pat, SEMA and with WSRA membership support, we all went to work.  It took Pat and his crew three years to work this through the Wyoming lawmaking process, but on March 5, 2009, he “got ‘er done”.  This bill also had support of the Wyoming Highway Patrol, Wyoming County Clerks Association, and the Wyoming Department of Revenue.

The bill is important to the Wyoming street rod and custom vehicle community for several reasons:
H.B. 2 provides specific registration and titling classes for street rods and   customs, including kits and replicas.

  • H.B. 2 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.
  • H.B. 2 exempts qualifying street rods and customs from emissions inspections and from a range of standard equipment requirements (only that equipment required in the model year that the vehicle resembles).
  • H.B. 2 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.
  • H.B. 2 permits the use of only a rear license plate on all streetrods and customs up to 1968.
  • H.B. 2 permits the use of blue dot taillights on street rods and custom vehicles. 

Street rods and custom cars are the same crowd pleasers that participate in exhibitions and as parade vehicles, and whose owners regularly contribute to charities and civic events.  H.B. 2 simply recognizes the immeasurable amount of time, money and attention automotive hobbyists invest in their cars.  For many vehicle enthusiasts in Wyoming and throughout America , building, maintaining and enjoying their vehicles is a favorite pastime.  This legislation represents an opportunity to acknowledge their commitment to the hobby and to protect it for future generations. 

The success of this lawmaking would have been far less likely and successful with out SEMA support.  Strength in numbers and organization in all ways brings benefits and preservation to our hobby.  We need to be vigilant to preserve and protect our hobby so we may continue to enjoy it within the law.

I want to thank Representative Pat Childers and his crew, SEMA and the WSRA for all of your help.  On a final note there is someone that was a great partner and help in all of this process and to me is  Fred Williams, Division Director of NSRA. 

Thank you all!
Stan Goodwin,       Wyoming Streetrod Association
