Re: The EPA is Chasing Down Race Car Owners

The EPA is out of control, this is just one of the latest examples.
If I want to convert one of my vehicles to a full on race car, why shouldn't I be able to? If I don't license it, or drive it on the street, leave me alone.
The whole emissions thing is a joke. The last time I had to put my 86 Monte Carlo SS thru emissions, it failed the VISUAL inspection. It passed the sniffer, quite well, in fact. They said I was missing the belt on the air pump. What good does the air pump do if I passed without it functioning? I got a belt, went home and put it on, and discovered that the pump froze up, and made the belt squeal like crazy. Back to the store, bought a pump, another belt, installed it all, just to get the same reading as when it didn't work.
Just say NO to the EPA!
If you don't belong to SEMA, join. It's free, and they'll keep you up to date on this stuff.

Re: The EPA is Chasing Down Race Car Owners

The other day I saw this link on Facebook but the petition wouldn't work. It did this time. SIGNED! These criminals in the epa need to be stopped somehow. I couldn't even make a guess at how many cars I have converted or helped someone convert into race cars, circle track as well as drag.

Re: The EPA is Chasing Down Race Car Owners

Didn't we go through this in the 70's?

Re: The EPA is Chasing Down Race Car Owners

I think we need the EPA. We all enjoy clean water and air. Nobody wants to breath the air that the Chinese have to breath or drink polluted water. Look what is happening in Porter Ranch, Calif. or what happened in West Virginia. What bothers me is the fact that these multi billion dollar corp can get away with these kinds of things and only get a slap on the wrist fine while the little guy gets targeted with some BS like this. Once the BIG polluters have conformed to the guidelines that are the law, come talk to me about doing something about my street/strip car.
