    David Freiburger from Hot Rod Magazine shared this link on his facebook. It's the whitehouse.gov site. It's only been open one night, and the petition has over 21,000 signatures already. Tell the EPA to Withdraw Its Proposal to Prohibit the Conversion of Vehicles Into Racecars | We the People: Your Voice in Our Government

    The EPA should focus more on big corporations and larger scale things like coal. Auto racing is not the issue here. Being only 19, I have a long way to go working on cars. I would be crushed if our hobby was destroyed, because I personally have so many other cars that I want/have to work on.

    If I ever went to maximum security I'd get that tattooed on my back.

    I'm guessing the ice age (part of a climate cycle by the way) was caused by flatulent dinosaurs.......damn dinosaurs.

    When asked what kind of car she drives "I don't own a car". Previously her state owned car was (what else, puke) a Prius. Figures...........................

    A Prius- a car with a huge carbon footprint to manufacture and when they die and get thrown away- since they are a throw -away car, they leave a big carbon footprint with that big battery. I bitchslap any Prius owner with the facts. Makes me want to get a hair cut, put on a suit and educate these fools in DC. Just going to be tough to hold back the f bombs out my mouth.

    I posted this over at A-V so it's sort of a repeat.
    I noticed that Monday our senator has an appt to get his T&C mini-van serviced. He usually brings some work along and waits around. He's always happy to talk about any government issues and I'm going to try and speak to him about this, if at all possible. He's one of the rare good politicians. Seriously.

    On the Prius note: Today I had to make a run to the salvage yard we use at the shop to get a part because they weren't able to deliver it (and we needed it TODAY). I spotted at LEAST a dozen Prius's (Prius', Prii?) lined up. I had to ask about them. They're all early models and the battery packs are spent. The cost to replace the pack far outweighs the value of the car so they were all scrapped. They said the procedure to scrap a Prius is a huge PITA. Mainly the battery packs and all the regulations that go along with it. According to them, it's true. The Prius is one of the "dirtiest" cars built when you figure one from start to finish. They take any vehicle in for scrap but said it wouldn't hurt their feelings one little bit if they never had to deal with another Prius.
    The reason they were all just sitting there yet, totally intact was, waiting for paperwork that allows them to dismantle the cars. THEN they have to have a licensed hybrid technician come to remove the battery packs. After that it takes a special trucking company to haul the packs away for recycling. Yep, Prius is going to save the planet. NOT.

    I haven't seen anything on the news or even on MSN Auto garbage.
    And you thought my M photo contest was a scam for email addresses.

    Somehow I don't think the Whitehouse is pulling an email scam.

    W/H has been pulling scams since day one and internet scams are everywhere.
    I haven't seen anything from a legit person.
    Dick Edlebrock , Jeg's enterprise, Little E, a Petty, NHRA, someone.
