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

EPA target is defeat devices, not racers

Aftermarket parts makers are warned

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.

So what is going on?            http://www.autonews.com/article/20160215/OEM11/302159901/epa-target-is-defeat-devices-not-racers?cciid=email-autonews-weekly

To All of my NortheastWheelsEvents friends, I sincerely need your help in getting out the word, so that as many people as possible watch the premiere of the tv show. I thank those of you who have already shared and posted promoting the show. We need to have as many people record and watch as possible. If you will share my posts for a few days, it could make a difference. We only have one shot to make this show a success, so that it can continue and evolve. I can honestly say each episode is better than the one before. I have this set so you can invite your friends too...I think? : ) Check out the link from Old Cars Weekly below for more info Thanks in advance for all of your support and for putting up with having me on your television. All of you know I would reciprocate without question. You guys are the best!
December 5th, 8pm-9pm

If you have never heard of  the LeMons series, check it out!!! Then haunt the demo derbies for your next LeMons entrant!!

 

NEXT RACE SIGNUPS:  

LeMONS, PRIMARIES TAX NOXIOUS-EMISSIONS LIMITS
Combined outgassing of bloviating candidates, suppurating crapcans to greatly exceed healthy levels, says New Hampshire EPA.
 
Loudon NH--With the Aug 29 app deadline for LeMons @ NHMS (24-25 Oct) approaching, area residents are fearing a long, difficult winter. "Most years, the air settles out after LeMons," says Loudon County syrup distiller and State EPA boss Lowell Ipswich. "This time, all that burnt 90-weight, aerosolized bearing metal, and unsavory armpit fug will be lofted back into the atmosphere by Donald Trump's hot-air plume, Ted Cruz machine-gun smoke, Hillary's powerful shrug-upblasts, and Chris Christie's eye-watering methane emissions."
 
The combined burdens of janky-ass racecars and gasbag politicians may imperil health across the region. "Clouds of foul exhaust from an '88 Cavalier we can handle," Mr. Ipswich explains. "But add the toxic invective of Scott Walker, Bernie Sanders' clouds of ear-steam, and the oleaginous residue left by a Clinton campaign, and you've got a much scarier prospect. Of the two, LeMons is likely less harmful." 
Indeed, the traditional autumn crapcan season tends to broadly enrich the State as communities pull together to solve metric-tool, un-siezed-up-smallblock, and Fiddle Faddle shortages and local bears fatten themselves up for the winter on racers' unwatched feral children. "If you can scrub everything down once the LeMons guys leave, then it's fine," says Loudon mayor Thos. Q. Blanchette IV. "Unfortunately, with a candidate infestation going on simultaneously, you can't even step out of the house without six guys in suits trying to akwardly kiss your baby or steal your wife's makeup. (I'm looking at youHuckabee and Rubio.)"
 
This year's primary has proven especially damaging, due both to the sheer number of candidates and the ever-rising volume of solid, particulate, and gaseous waste each one produces. The New Hampshire EPA cites Mr. Trump's campaign as the biggest offender, noting solid waste from hair-care products, exhaust from gratuitous helicopter rides, and voluminous rhetorical offgassing. (Mr. Trump called the agency "bear-f***ing scumbag illegals from Canadia," a statement he later deemed "misunderstood.") The least-impactful candidates are Jeb Bush, who's left only a few hundred Slim-Fast containers behind, and Carly "Pinin" Fiorina, whose campaign bus is powered by 100% renewable, carbon-neutral multimillionaire self-righteousness.  
 
Teams wishing to further the State's toxic worries or confirm Mr. Trump's chargesshould sign up online by Saturday, Aug 29; those wishing to throw their hats in the presidential ring should seriously reconsider.

Check your event date and post them ASAP!

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 Does The  AACA Museum and Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles Post " Non-Automotive " Events? So More People Will Enjoy The World Class Museums

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,

Pam
