    Uggh, that strut tower is exactly why I got out of Caddy’s. I’ve half cut so many that the fun went out of it.

    Never have understood the logic behind that.

    It didn’t sell at your listed price so re-list it at a higher price. Maybe the higher price will attract more interest?

    I just don’t get it!

    It works, I’ve done it successfully a few times and if you watch the results on BAT/eBay/Mecum you’ll see the same cars regurgitating through.

    I'm not banning anything. It's been illegal to modify, in any way, your emissions system. It's illegal to remove or alter your vehicle lighting or restraint system too. But no one ever does anything about violators, or seldom does. I doubt there are many Datsuns that are totally emissions legal on the road. Mine isn't by choice. I'm aware of the risks and if I was pulled off the road you won't hear me whining about it like this guy.

     

     

    So you can make meth because you are not responsible for how someone uses it??? How about a lab worker that makes biological weapons and sells to anyone? A gun maker who makes a carbon fiber/ceramic gun with a surface that does not hold finger prints and goes right through an airport metal detector? not responsible for their obvious intended use? Seems like the most cost effective thing to do here is eliminate the seller.

     

     

     

     

     

    Hmm, well that escalated quickly. Who decides what is ok and what’s not? You? VP Harris? That’s what the real issue is, what is ok for me might not be for someone else but if the government decides than there will be issues like this one.

    I think it's impossible to guarantee that only off road vehicles will use them. I bet most end up on the street and as the EPA can guarantee that a vehicle leaves the factory with reduced emissions and a correct emissions system they can't check every vehicle for owners that have modified them to make more power or w/e. It's only sensible that they would try to choke off the supply. Like I said the after market is full of illegal parts and companies that modify engine emissions. Full.

     

    Saying "Hey I just make something that's illegal to put on your engine, I don't install them" is disingenuous. Hey I just make hand guns, I don't shoot people. 

    Not sure if serious; but, no you can’t hold a seller responsible for the actions of a buyer.

    What people choose to do with something is all on them.

    The size of the needle for second shot is a dead give away!

    And the obvious reason there is a microchip shortage.

     

    edit: sorry should have had an “lol” at the end of that sentence since none of you actually know me.

    Not what ? 

    Stashing cash? What I’m seeing is people spending with abandon and not worrying about “when the rent comes due”. I’m actually worried that we are heading directly into another housing and fuel driven recession. Maybe I’m wrong.

    I beg to differ--as evidence, look at the rise in diesel prices. Diesel is a by product or a pre product of gasoline production. My grandfather worked in oil/gas production in the 50's and 60's. The production of gasoline produced unwanted diesel and his company gave it away to ocean traveling ships or disposed of it in the gulf. The price of diesel should never be more or even equal to the price of gasoline, but it is and has been. So, I lack compassion and refuse to accept that gas is sold at a loss, or whatever bullshit they are peddling. 

    This hasn’t been true in a long while, diesel does cost to produce now. Also, working for a pretty major truck stop brand I will say that; yes, at times we sell for a loss. As long as you keep buying Mt Dew and Starburst in the store we can afford to do that.
