Another reason for enthusiasts to HATE California!!

Yeah I love living on the coast, and driving PCH, but how do we get rid of the fools at CARB?

Starting next year, all auto repair shops in California will be required to check the tire pressure of cars brought in for service. Repair shops will be allowed to charge customers for checking and inflating tires at whatever rate they choose.

Oh and then there is this..... they are targeting black paint? HUH?

(if you haven't heard it already

We're BROKE. I'm sure we could save a few MILLION by getting RID OF CARB, which really serves NO PURPOSE at all since there are already Federal emission standards.

Unless you're paying for it today, you're stuck with the new tax.

It's like all the crazy liberals are coming out of the wood work. I'm all for checks and balances, but the sh!t they're coming out with not is crazy. Like no TV's larger than 40" in Cali???

No black cars???

And the LA Times just reminded me that Measure R (for subway and street upgrades) will add ANOTHER 0.5% this summer!!

Well, how do you like this ... All new cars don't have to do SMOG for the first 4 years, which cost around $40 or so ... BUT, you need to pay $39 fee for not doing SMOG ...

Win Win situation for the state ... Only in CA you can get this kind of treatment ...
