The Michigan legislature passed a bill to allow for the registration of a “military surplus vehicle” as a “historic vehicle.” The bill has been sent to Governor Rick Snyder for his approval.

“Historic vehicle” means a vehicle that is more than 25 years old, and owned solely as a collector’s item and for participation in club activities, exhibitions, tours, parades and similar uses, including mechanical testing, but not used for general transportation. Use of the vehicle during the month of August in each year is considered an exhibition.
