This just in...

Stop Legislation That Threatens Your Hobby!
SOURCE: Summit Racing Equipment
RELEASE DATE: January 30, 2002
Akron, Ohio -- For years, the performance industry and enthusiasts like you have dealt
with government emissions and vehicle scrappage programs. They were intended to help
clean the air or improve fuel efficiency, but have often hurt our hobby by restricting
modifications or eliminating sources of parts. Thanks to combined efforts by the industry
and enthusiasts, many of these programs have been successfully modified or repealed.

Now, new proposed U.S. government legislation threatens to take state vehicle scrappage
programs to the next level. U.S. Senate Bill S.1766 contains a provision (Section 803) that
would allocate federal funds for state scrappage programs for vehicles more than 15
years old.

Not only does that threaten the existence of 1960s and í70s era musclecars, it also
means Mustangs, Camaros, Grand Nationals, Corvettes, and other performance vehicles
made in the 1980s could also be fodder for the crusher.

Whatís worse, non-performance vehicles that are an invaluable resource for engines,
suspension components, and other parts would also be subject to the program.

Summit Racing and others in the performance industry are working hard to amend
S.1766. But we canít do it without your help. Let your U.S. Senator know how this
legislation will directly affect you--print, sign, and mail them a copy of our Legislator Letter.
You can type in your Senator's name and your name right on the letter. If you need the
name and address of your Senator, go to for a list of legislators, plus
additional information on S.1766 and other legislation affecting our hobby.

Take a stand for your rights--write to your Senator today. Your hobby as you know it may
depend on it.

That would suck, Hope they don't get any bad ideas like that in Canada. 15 years isnt really that long, it limits us to 87 doesnt it? Thats just old enough for solid axle, and Its going fast, hope everyone sends that email.

Re: This just in...

here's a portion of the bill:


(a) ESTABLISHMENT- The Secretary shall establish a program, to be known as the `National Motor Vehicle Efficiency Improvement Program,' under which the Secretary shall provide grants to
States to operate programs to offer owners of passenger automobiles and light-duty trucks manufactured in model years more than 15 years prior to the fiscal year in which appropriations are made
under subsection (d) to provide financial incentives to scrap such automobiles and to replace them with automobiles with higher fuel efficiency.

(b) STATE PLAN- Not later than 180 days after the date of enactment of an appropriations act containing funds authorized under subsection (d), to be eligible to receive funds under the program, the
Governor of a State shall submit to the Secretary a plan to carry out a program under this subtitle in that State.

(c) ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA- The Secretary shall approve a State plan and provide the funds under subsection (d), if the State plan--

(1) requires that all passenger automobiles and light-duty trucks turned in be scrapped;

(2) requires that all passenger automobiles and light-duty trucks turned in be currently registered in the State in order to be eligible;

(3) requires that all passenger automobiles and light-duty trucks turned in be operational at the time that they are turned in;

(4) restricts automobile owners (except not-for-profit organizations) from turning in more than one passenger automobile and one light-duty truck in a 12-month period;

(5) provides an appropriate payment to the person recycling the scrapped passenger
automobile or light-duty truck for each turned-in passenger automobile or light-duty truck;

(6) provides a minimum payment to the automobile owner for each passenger automobile and light-duty truck turned in; and

(7) provides, in addition to the payment under paragraph (6), an additional credit that may be redeemed by the owner of the turned-in passenger automobile or light-duty truck at the time of
purchase of new fuel-efficient automobile.
