Wisconsin hobbyist plates and vehicle registration has been suspended!

UPDATE: Tuesday, July 9, 2019

This update is provided by Curt Rymkus with the Wisconsin Specialty Vehicle Council 


Most people thought with the dismissal of the tickets for the 32 not having fenders or a hood, all was over.

Not so, as directed by the Court the 32 had to be inspected by Wisconsin State Patrol. The WSP Inspector said the 32 failed the inspection because it did not have fenders and a hood. The 32’s “Hobbyist” plate registration was suspended and the 32 cannot be driven legally on Wisconsin roads. 

The 32’s owner, Brad, will contact his legislators to find out how dismissal of tickets can lead to suspension of registration.

They set aside the second Friday of July as a Collector Vehicle Appreciation Day.” (This year would be Friday, July 12th)

“By supporting the WSP to continue – you are preventing potential voting constituents from selling their collector and hot rod vehicles?”
