    I sure hope this fails.
    Just look at what happens to the poor saps who find their property designated as "Historic". They get every politician, committee, and do-gooder for miles breathing down their neck, telling them what they have to do at their own cost along with what they can't do. No remodeling unless it brings the building back to how it was originally.
    Most end up giving the building to the government as no one will buy it and they can't afford the requirements.
    This is just a way to pry valuable assets from collectors and give them to greedy politicians (yes, I realize there is no other kind).

    But, I was told "If you Like your Car, You can keep your Car"
    The Govt. wouldn't pretend to know better than us, Would they??

    When I see a "Historic Vehicle" plate on a mass-production car or truck, it always reminds me of the Andy Griffith episode where he convinces Barney that the old "motorsickle" saw WWI action at Chateau-Thierry.

    There's a 1990 S10 running around here with Antique plates on it. Pisses me off. Sure, he's got a small block in it, but it's a POS S10, for Pete's sake.
