Thats interesting because Washington State is trying to pass a bill removing the vintage tags which you only pay once and throwing us into the yearly renewal group now.
For the most part politicians fall into two categories. The Prius driving left that feel all the non-emission, unsafe at any speed classics should be banned from public roads to save the planet and us from ourselves. And on the right we have the driven by money club where the number of digits involved is in proportion to how much protection, care, interest (or lack thereof) a person, topic, right, or law receives.
Now I am not saying we should roll over and accept ridiculous fee's and rules, but if revenue generating fee's are not high enough or often enough (so you gave me $45 twenty years ago, what have you done for me lately) to be an asset to one group, in short order we will find ourselves on the "to do" list of the other (out of need to look good and justify election). Or we had better be ready to retro fit to current emissions and crash standards or else this hobby will be killed.
The enemy of our enemy is our friend.
