Shawn Barrett Posted February 19, 2012 Share Posted February 19, 2012 Heres a question for you gurus.... I know this has come up before I recall reading up on the subject and I also know that this is one "Slippery Slope" and will probably always remain that way. But how are you gentlemen licensing these old rigs and insuring them. Provided you are not running a commercial business, do not have P.U.C. numbers, fuel tax stickers etc.. etc..Personal use only.Heres my situation. Many of you have seen pics of my truck...Its in decent shape. I also have a 1968 Dodge Charger that I'm in the middle of restoring. Therefore I dont want to tear the Mack apart in a million pieces and have the two projects going at once.In the meantime I am considering playing around with the Mack as is. It has a certain cool factor to it in the somewhat rough shape its in right now. Id like to make the rounds at the shows with it just for the hell of it.This is an issue that will need to be dealt with now or later after a full resto. Id like to spearhead it now because its been weighing on my shoulders ever since I brought the truck home 2 years ago.....its been sitting idle too long. And I need to find out if I can throw Antique plates on it, get classic insurance and call it day. Or am I always going to be at risk of being nailed to the wall by the D.O.T. if I do so without having all the proper commercial garb that usually is required with commercial vehicles. I suppose this question is aimed at Pennsylvania residents specifically, because some states are "funnier" than others when it comes to license, registration, ins. etc...etc..so Im concerned about my own home base here and at this point im NOT even thinking about crossing state lines because Im assuming thats another can of worms.....but I dont know.... Any insight would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.-thanks in advance-ShawnP.S. Yes I have a Class A CDL and I drive a Mack for a living Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
