Restoration and VIN tags

Please see this article about the recent legal troubles by a prominent Mustang restorer in OK. Apparently OSBI (OK) has ruled that the cars cannot be restored with repro parts and that sheet metal around the VIN cannot be replaced. Coming soon to a state near you...

A series of legal arguments over the definition of restoration protocol ensued, with the government stating that shop owners in Oklahoma cannot replace the factory sheet metal with aftermarket parts during the restoration process without re-titling the car.
As the values of collector cars continues to climb, so will the illegal activities and the oversight from government.

The biggest problem facing America today is that lies are so widely accepted as truths.
