The Massachusetts Association of Auto Clubs was founded in 1969 by a group of concerned hobbyists, much like yourself, who were dedicated to promoting and protecting the interest of the automobile collecting hobby.

Massachusetts Street Rod and Custom Vehicle Bill Approved by Legislature; Moves to Governor for Signature

 In a flurry of last minute activity, SEMA model legislation (now known as H.B. 5194) to create a vehicle registration classification for street rods and custom vehicles was approved by the Massachusetts State Legislature and now awaits the signature of the governor before becoming law.  H.B. 5194 defines a street rod as an altered vehicle manufactured before 1949 and a custom as an altered vehicle at least 25 years old and manufactured after 1948.  The bill allows kit cars and replica vehicles to be assigned a certificate of title bearing the same model year designation as the production vehicles they most closely resemble. 
We Urge You to Contact Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (Contact Information Below) Immediately to Request His Support for H.B. 5194

• H.B. 5194 provides specific registration classes for street rods and customs.

• H.B. 5194 exempts street rods and customs from emissions inspections.

• H.B. 5194 only hold street rods and customs to the equipment standards specified by law during the model year listed on the title of the vehicle.

• H.B. 5194 provides that a replica vehicle will be assigned the same model year designation as the production vehicle it most closely resembles.

• H.B. 5194 permits street rods and custom vehicles to display blue dot taillights.

• H.B. 5194 allows street rods and custom vehicles to be used for occasional transportation, exhibitions, club activities, parades, tours and similar uses.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick immediately to urge his support for H.B. 5194.
