New Ga Taxation on Pre-1986 vehicles - petition action


Recommended Posts

Here is a notice that I got from the Triumph club on new proposed taxation - pass along

H. B. 80 is unfair taxation that will increase the annual ad valorem tax on pre-1986 vehicles. Many owners are car enthusiasts, often retirees on fixed incomes, with old hobby cars that are mostly driven to car shows or club events, so have little impact on traffic or wear and tear of roads. This proposed ad valorem tax increase is ONLY to Raise Money, not to cover any state costs, and it will affect many people who can least afford the increase. Tell the House Ways and Means Committee to STOP this bill!

So I created a petition to Rep. Alan Powell (GA-29), Rep. Don Parsons (GA-42), Rep. Sharon Beasley-Teague (GA-65), Rep. Mickey Channell (GA-116), Rep. Ben Harbin (GA-118), Rep. Tom Rice (GA-51), Rep. Chuck Sims (GA-169), Rep. Penny Houston (GA-170), Rep. Ron Stephens (GA-164), Rep. Wendell Willard (GA-49), Rep. Ellis Black (GA-174), Rep. Larry O'Neal (GA-146), Rep. Chuck Martin (GA-47), Rep. Mickey Stephens (GA-161), Rep. Virgil Fludd (GA-66), Rep. Howard Mosby (GA-90), Rep. Terry England (GA-108), Rep. Bob Bryant (GA-160), Rep. Willie Talton (GA-145), Rep. David Knight (GA-126), Rep. Stacey Abrams (GA-84), Rep. Allen Peake (GA-137), Rep. Matt Ramsey (GA-72), Rep. Paul Battles (GA-15), Rep. Lynne Riley (GA-50), Rep. B.J. Pak (GA-102), Rep. Brett Harrell (GA-106), Rep. Bruce Williamson (GA-111), and Rep. John Carson (GA-43), which says:

H.B. 80 is a BAD BILL that raises annual ad valorem taxes on folks owning older cars, often retirees on fixed income. Stop H.B. 80 from unfairly raising taxes!

It has passed the house and has been sent to the Senate for their process


Here is the part for classic car owners - it is much less than a new car and it appears to happen once instead of yearly like it is now.

Any person who purchases a 1963 through 1985 model year motor vehicle for which such person obtains a title shall be subject to this Code section, but the state title ad valorem tax fee shall be in an amount equal to .50 percent of the fair market value of such motor vehicle, and the local title ad valorem tax fee shall be in an amount equal to .50 percent of the fair market value of such motor vehicle.

I think it will pass since it brings in big money in the rest of the bill

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
