    i live in michigan i could put 83 VW diesel in a radial flyer and tape to flash lights to the front and it would be legal LOL

    not really but it's really easy to get a kit car registered just need all the emission equipment form the doner engine last i looked and needs fully functioning lights and seat belts air bags are optional

      To me, if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. If it's a repop 69 Camaro or 57 Chev, and the details are true, it's all the same to me. Whether Chevy or Year One made it, it's still a Camaro or 57 Chev. IMO

Is it really an XYZ car or is it a Year One? What part makes a car a car, the Frame? unibody? firewall? roof? or is the VIN number all that counts? What part or how much of the orignal car is needed to still say its it that car?

        I agree.. when demand for popular goes sky high because of rare, its just insane. More kits or ground up, keeps the momentum going.
        Any loopholes at all, have at them.

          a dynacore 69 Camaro body is still a 69 Camaro
          same with the mustang, the chevelle , a Brookfield 32 ford roadster
          and the list goes on.
          The only reason most try to use at least "Part" of an original cars vin's "placement" sheetmetal is because There isn't a standardized law/rule on kit/recreation vehicles for all 50 states, And those that might have laws allowing a recreation to be vin'd, and titled as a model year it "looks" like. STATES have a bad habbit if changing the rules after the fact. and if you're in the middle of a build when they change the "rules" it can kill the project.
          Take here,my state, a FFR Daytona coupe, it gets titled as a recreation/kit car, and the year depends on the engine blocks date code. have a 1970 block, no emissions. drop a mod motor in it ,say from 2012 and it has to pass emissions for a 2012 vehicle. All this seems mighty crazy for the amount of miles "fun" car/trucks log per year.. very few are used daily..
          Cadzilla was actually built from a '49 Caddy two door sedanette, much like SBG's Buick. It was a low mile, near museum piece.

            The guys down here building Eleanor replicas, wait, taking money for them, got busted VIN washing. Texas takes a dim view on that. The last I checked a lot of folks got burned on their deposit. I've seen cops compare body part VINs on late models to the VIN on the dashboard. With computers the way they are now, they can find out if the panels are stolen, the car, dang near anything. They'll take the whole car.

            The VIN and title dictate to me what the car is. If you rebody a Camaro, it's still a Camaro. I wonder what Chad's wagon is registered as though.
