New Hampshire Street Rods/Custom Vehicles: SAN model legislation to create a vehicle registration classification for street rods and provide for special license plates for these vehicles was approved by the New Hampshire Senate. The bill was not considered by the full House before the legislature adjourned its 2006 session. The bill defines a street rod as an altered vehicle manufactured at least 25 years ago or built to resemble a vehicle at least 25 years old. The measure also allows kit cars and replica vehicles to be assigned a certificate of title bearing the same model year designation as the production vehicle it most closely resembles. SAN is working with the sponsor to ensure that the bill will be reintroduced in 2007.
