    This came to me in email through my SEMA membership...

    This may have an effect on some of you.

    It's inevitable man! The majority of people don't know what an exhaust is and don't care about the minority who mod their cars...next they'll ban colored cars and have them all black because who needs a red or blue car anyway? After that is engine power and size lol

    What a bunch of BS

    Yep, all we can really do is fight and hold it off as long as humanly possible.

    on the paint subject - CA is pushing for a ban on dark colored paint for new cars - they claim dark colors make you run the A/C more and cause more pollution. I don't think they will be able to make it stick but complete idiocy on their part. (and you thought the ban on paint was so ridiculous that no one would attempt it :laugh: )

    I find this funny for one reason and one reason only. The noisy exhaust systems that anger people so much aren't exhaust systems at all, they're just rear mufflers, or even just pipe tips.

    This is pathetic, because usually full exhaust systems are quite good sounding, even to non-enthusiasts.

    Who understands what I'm talking about?

    More freedoms gone. Kill businesses and create more dependents on government programs. Gotta love all this change we were promised.

    Go talk to your Motorcycle buddies.
    They are screwing us everywhere.Or at least trying to.Right now it's noise,but we have catalytic converters in the pipes now so,it's kinda illegal to take them off the new bikes.

    Motoring won't be any fun any more,between gas prices and no noisy pipes.

    But the quote above says 95 decibels, not 'good sounding', whatever that is.

    My neighbor has a loud Harley he revs extensively and regularly at dawn whenever he heads out. If he wants to do that, then maybe he should buy a couple of acres out in the country instead of doing it 25 ft from my bedroom window.

    So they want to force you to make your cars quieter, but want to keep it illegal to reduce the eardrum shattering report of our guns to safe levels by allowing suppressors.... why?

    I know what you mean. I have a 3" racing down pipe and a Thermal R&D exhaust on my turbo 4G63. It can be loud, but it sounds so damn sexy. The thing that bothers me though is that motorcycle riders will be at more of a risk of getting run over by non-observent car drivers because of this bill. Most of my biker buddies say "Loud pipes save lives" since they can quickly get a drivers attention by down shifting and giving their bike some gas so that the idiot on their cell phone/applying make up/shaving/eating/wearing head phones can hear them and look around.

    yay for exempt vehicles... my newest modded car is 40 years old. no DEQ, no issues.
    my motorcycles are exempt from the silliness, too... newest one is 44 years old.

    my harley has open pipes and high compression. kick it over in the wee hours of the morn and putt outta the neighborhood as quiet as possible. ive asked my neighbors; nobody seems to notice.
    the car, on the other hand......

    Its personal transportation that is the ultimate target. Control the communication, and then the movement of the people and you are set.
