Allow Jeep Wranglers to Legally Drive Doorless in the Great State of Pennsylvania
Dave St.Somewhere York, PA Currently, the PA inspection code states - § 175.77 (f) Doors. A vehicle specified under this subchapter shall be equipped with doors of a type used as original equipment. The doors shall open and close securely unless the vehicle has been manufactured or modified to the extent that there is no roof or side. Tailgates, except on vehicles where the tailgate gives access to the passenger compartment, may be replaced with wood planking, nets or other material that will prevent loss of load. Tailgates may be removed when optional equipment, for example a truck camper, is added. We are petitioning the Governor, House and Senate of PA to update the above inspection code to allow Jeep Wranglers to drive doorless, one of the wonderful features of an American icon vehicle. PA has after-market vendors, professional training and trail facilities, dealerships and most importantly, law abiding, tax paying voters that drive jeeps. Come on Governor Wolf, we've seen your jeep, you've got to understand. This petition will be delivered to: Pennsylvania Governor Pennsylvania State House Pennsylvania State Senatehttps://www.change.org/p/pennsylvania-governor-allow-jeep-wranglers-to-legally-drive-doorless-in-the-great-state-of-pennsylvania?recruiter=7229697&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=autopublish&utm_term=des-lg-no_src-no_msg

WASHINGTON -- Alarm bells rang in the auto enthusiast community last week after a trade group warned that the EPA was threatening to ban the type of modified street cars that generations of amateur racers have taken to the track.
Relax, the EPA said. There's no new ban being proposed. Fact is such modifications have always been banned under the Clean Air Act.

If you can, check the calendar before you set your event date. Although " everyone knows our show is this date " it may not get the attendance you want because there is a " competing " event 25 miles up the road. On line calendars are a great service to our hobby. They can be used to prevent conflicts, and grow your club. Posting your events as soon as possible also helps people plan to participate and vendor's scheduling. Post on as many calendars as you can find, too. We may be one of the biggest, but no one reaches everyone!
Why are the AACA Museum and Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles family events posted on NortheastWheelsEvents.com? Because we support our car museums!
These events serve many positive purposes.
First, they bring in people who would never have visited a car museum. This makes more people aware of the " pretty cars " as well as gets more people through the gates, keeping the museum open and strong.
Second, getting more kids into the museum may light the fire we all share, the passion for all things on wheels.
Third, These events are great reasons why you can enjoy the great cars and buses on display while your family enjoys the added attractions.
These events are win/win situations for all of us! So, plan to attend your local museum with your family and make a memory together.
See you at the show,
