I'm about 18 different ways of mad on this deal. Too lazy to type the story again so here is the quote from my post on minitrucktalk.

I live in MN & bought my truck from a family member in SD. So when I was driving through SD and grabbed the paperwork for the truck from my cousin with the agreememnt to buy if MN titled & plated it as the truck was completely worthless to me w/o plates. I brought the title in to the local deputy registrar and did the title transfer. When the title went across someones desk in StPaul they choked slightly and asked for pics of the truck. I emailed the pics and they issued the title and plates as a regular motor vehicle.
Feb, Mar, Apr, & into May I used the truck as my daily driver w/o any problems. I know for a fact that the local PD ran the plate to confirm that I hadn't registered it as a Tracker or done something sketchy to get plates. I have a business in my town so they know me & would even waive on ocassion. On Mothers Day I was outside of town on running out to a local farm. It was 8:30am and there was zero cars on the road. The first car I come across was a MN trooper and he politely stopped me and gave me a warning ticket stating that minitrucks weren't legal in MN.
The next morning I went into the local PD and spoke with the chief about the stop. He said yeah they aren't technically legal but knew mine was legit as far as the licensing went. He told me about a local ordinance coming up for vote soon regarding golf carts, atv's and mini-trucks. He told me about the MN senate vote coming up too. I asked him if he wanted me to park it till all that was sorted out, "nope, your'e fine" he said.
About 10 days later I get a typed & hand signed letter in the mail from the state saying that my plates and title were being revoked with a name & number to call with questions. I called the number and talked to the lady and was informed that the trooper called and talked to the director of that department to get my plates and title pulled. She told me the state made a mistake plating the vehicle so they had to pull them. I asked her if the state was going to buy the truck from me since I now have a $4000 boat anchor in my garage that I would have never bought if they wouldn't have plated it. Feel free to guess the answer on that.
There is a couple things that burn my a$$ about the situation.
They knew exactly what they were titling. I did nothing fraudulant to aquire plates for the vehicle. If any of us make a mistake we have to live with it but not the state.
The chicken$h*t way the trooper went about it not by mentioning anything to me about getting my plates pulled, And even calling the director of the right dept to get them pulled.He never said anything during the stop. He even dropped by some minitruck info a couple days after the stop. I think there are a couple kinds of LEO's, the public servant protect & serve type of guy AND the guy that got dirt kicked in his face/ wedgies/ etc as a kid. I think the bulk of LEO's fall into the first catagory, Pretty sure the trooper I ran across falls into the second.
OK - I'm done.

Jeepin9910 Well I talked to a guy at work and he said that there is a guy a couple towns over that sells these. He said a couple have mud tires and off road lights and stuff and some have street tires and that they are street legal. We are gonna hopefully go look at them today. That's to all y'all for all the help.

Good Luck! May be a little tough - are you sure those were for/meet US standards for on road use? Or is it a case where maybe it will be used for "agriculture"? and those things don't matter?

At least they were still making them 10 years ago.-with 4wd?
