Owners of historic snowmobiles now can buy a special non-expiring decal through the secretary of state’s office.
To be eligible for the historic decal, a snowmobile must be at least 26 years old and owned solely as a collector’s item. Such sleds are limited to occasional use and may be used only in club activities, exhibitions, tours and similar events.
The special decal costs $50 and doesn’t expire. It shows the outline of the Upper and Lower peninsulas and the words, "Michigan Historic Snowmobile."
It can’t be transferred to a new owner if the snowmobile is sold.
The Michigan Snowmobile Association welcomed the new decal, noting there are many shows and races for antique and vintage snowmobiles.
Registration fees support snowmobile trail grooming and other purposes.
