The Ferris Bueller 250GT kit car CALIFORNIA BILL TO INCREASE “SPECIALLY CONSTRUCTED” CLASS FROM 500 TO 750 VEHICLES PER YEAR APPROVED BY COMMITTEE; MOVES TO APPROPRIATIONS Legislation (A.B. 1740) in the California Assembly to increase the registration limit for exempted specially constructed vehicle (kit car) registrations from 500 to 750 vehicles per year was approved by the Transportation Committee. The bill now moves to the Assembly Appropriations Committee for consideration. We Urge You to Contact Members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee (List Attached) Immediately to Request Their Support for A.B. 1740 Under current California policy, specially constructed vehicles that do not receive one of the 500 sequence numbers are subject to a “muddied” titling, registration and smog check process. A.B. 1740 will help mitigate the “black market” value of these 500 sequence numbers which are often sold on e-bay and other on-line auction sites. * A.B. 1740 recognizes the minimal impact specially constructed vehicles have on air quality. * A.B. 1740 recognizes the fact that specially constructed vehicles are overwhelmingly well-maintained and infrequently driven. * A.B. 1740 will help allow vehicle owners to confidently take advantage of a newly-enacted vehicle registration amnesty program for specially constructed vehicles that were previously registered or classified incorrectly. Under the new law, the DMV will grant amnesty from prosecution to vehicle owners if certain conditions are met, including the owner filing a completed application with the department. DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee today to urge support for A.B. 1740.
