I was refering to the people that keep telling him his idea is stupid because no one knows what will happen in the future, when the whole point of this thread is that his truck would be considered "historic" in 6 years and certain emissions laws wont effect him anymore.

I have put a total of $45 in to the mini ranger at this point fyi

What's his truck being "historic" have anything to do with it?

And don't emissions laws only change for vehicles before like..1976. I didn't think there was anything that says your vehicle becomes "this many years old" and suddenly the laws change.

In Maryland if your car or truck is 25 years or older and you get historic license plates you donít have emissions low or Inspections.

I know this because 4 out of 5 of my car were historic -V-V-V-
