National Historic Vehicle Register Act to Preserve Automotive History

Birmingham, Michigan — The automobile is a crucial part of American history, and new legislation is now in motion to establish a National Historic Vehicle Register that would document and preserve information on historically significant vehicles in the Library of Congress.

U.S. Representative Gary Peters (D-MI) announced and explained the bill alongside Historic Vehicle Assocation president Marc Gessler. Vehicles cleared to join the Register (pending approval from the Department of the Interior) must be historically significant in association with an important person or event, as a work of a master craftsman, or as a top example of a specific vehicle or restoration.
