I like three wheelers with the single in back.

Anyhow, the APE was originally Italian, but they make them in India as well.

Managed to find this in the VT inspection manual:

Homebuilt Vehicles: All homebuilt vehicles 1996 and newer registered as a pleasure car or truck must meet all the requirements of the inspection manual, including OBD II. Homebuilt vehicles registered for a special purpose, as listed under definitions are exempt from OBD II, but must still include at a minimum; adequate tires, brakes, fuel and exhaust systems.

Having trouble finding the alluded to "special purpose" definition. The manual is sort of vague in a lot of places, which is making it tough to piece it together.

There is a section on "specialized vehicles", which MAY be what they meant by "special purpose".

SECTION 13 – SPECIALIZED VEHICLES

Registration may be required on a variety of vehicles, such as bucket loaders, road making appliances, highway building equipment, tractors and others. The act of registration requires these vehicles be inspected. Due to the fact these vehicles are not equipped with passenger carrying facilities and often not for nighttime use, the complete requirements need not be met unless the vehicle came so equipped. However, these vehicles must meet these minimum requirements. They must have adequate tires, brakes, muffler, number plate brackets and the complete vehicle be in good mechanical condition. If the vehicle is equipped with lights, they must be of an approved type and in good operating condition.

There's also a list of "special" vehicles, which may also be what they meant by "special purpose". This is the one I'm putting my money on. I just did a blanket search on the term "special".


�� Type I: Those vehicles which are restored to their original body configuration and which may contain changed steering, brake, power train or suspension systems, and may include "Street Rods", "Replicas of Street Rods", "Replicas" or "Kit-cars".

�� Type II: Those vehicles changed from the recognized vehicle manufacturer's original body configuration but which retain the general appearance, including changes to the body chassis or engine of the original vehicle. This type may also include changes and modifications to engine, chassis, brake system, power train, steering and suspension systems, and may include "Street Rods", "Replicas of Street Rods", "Replicas" or "Kit-cars".

�� Type III: Other than Type I and Type II special vehicles, those vehicles custom built with fabricated parts, or parts taken from existing vehicles.

�� Exhibition: Any motor vehicle maintained solely for use as an exhibit at club activities, parades, and other functions of public interest. (These could include trailers, as well as other vehicles and might be early model or late model vehicles and vehicles of special design; i.e., trick cars, or replicas of railroad locomotives or railroad box cars).

�� Antique: These can be exhibition vehicles as above but need be only a vehicle twenty-five (25) years old or older.

�� Street Rod: "Street Rod" shall mean a vehicle, the body and frame of which were manufactured prior to the year 1949 and which has been modified for safe road use, or a replica thereof which resembles that of an original pre 1949 vehicle and has also been modified for safe road use. For the purposes of this Section "modified" means, but is not limited to, a substantial and material alteration or replacement of the engine, drive-train, suspension or brake system or alteration of the body which may be chopped, channeled, sectioned, filled or otherwise changed dimensionally from the original manufactured body.

Any such modification may be made only if said modification equals, improves or enhances the safety aspects of the original equipment so modified.

�� Replica: "Replica" means a body or frame commercially manufactured which resembles that of the original vehicle or duplicated vehicle and which retains the basic style and dimensions as originally manufactured and whose major components such as grill shell, hood and doors are readily interchangeable with the original component.

�� Kit-Car: "Kit-car" shall mean a commercially manufactured body and/or body and frame which may resemble a regularly manufactured vehicle or whose body may be of a unique design but is manufactured to fit on a commercially manufactured frame.

�� Neighborhood Electric Vehicle: “Neighborhood Electric Vehicle” means a self-propelled, electrically-powered motor vehicle which:

�� Is emission free;
�� Is designed to carry four or fewer persons;
�� Is designed to be, and is, operated at speeds of 25 MPH or less;
�� Has at least four wheels in contact with the ground;
�� Has a gross vehicle weight rating less than 3,000 pounds;
�� Conforms to minimum safety equipment requirements as adopted in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 500, Low Speed Vehicles (49 C.F.R. 571.500).

I'm going to talk to my mechanic (he'd do the inspecting after all). Good thing he likes me!
