Well I'll give my two pennies here. I thought that if the vehicle was 20 years
old or more it was considered an antique. If that's so, then you would only
have to worry about 2 years of vehicles, 1980, and 1981.

Its my understanding that 50 yrs makes an antique, 25 makes a classic.

Julian.

Please go back and read my original post again. Get past the part that says
"Totaled". Re-read the second part, the part that says:

"Beginning January 1, 2010, prohibits department from registering >>ANY
motor vehicle manufactured before 1981 unless it is antique or vehicle
of special interest or meets certain emission standards."

The emphasis on the word >>ANY
Not just "totaled" vehicles but >>ANY

So Julian, I respect you, and understand you position, and while I must
disagree with your opinion, I will also willingly defend your right to have
it. Should your circumstances change again and you decide to "restore an
older vehicle" like a "'68 HEMI Charger, or Road Runner Super Bee"; both of
which are truly awesome cars! In my state you would be unable to drive it
when you were done.

My posting is strictly for information. If this kind of legislation is
appearing here; It could be happening everywhere.
I just wanted to let you, and everyone else, know that when you again have
the time to restore that, HEMI Charger, or Per-1981 whatever, you may never
be able to drive it because both you and it would be criminals.

My best regards to all.
Chris

My neighbor just purchased a 1995 Mustang V6. The first mod he wants to do is
the exhaust. I was wondering if anyone out there could lead me to a good
mustang list (do any exist?). Also, if you couldn't, could you tell me
which exhaust system would be the best for his application. He would primarily
just be going around town, but he wants to be able to put the (?)rubber
down(?) when he feels it was necessary.

Thanks in advance

Well Folks, I finally did it. I installed the Jacob's Mileage Master Ultra
Team ignition system I've had sitting in the box since Oct. didn't take long
to hook up, and the results were immediate. It starts up IMMEDIATELY, and the
throttle response has improved quite a bit. The claim of 10% mileage increase
will be tested soon, and I'll let ya know. Anything better than the 8.5 mpg I
get now will be great.

One bit of advice, don't use the butt-connectors they supply, and double check
to make sure your plug wires are on. I had a wire come off, and it developed
a miss, and right afterward, the butt-connector failed, and voltage to the
coil was cut. I was ready to call Jacob's and do a severe butt chewin, but I
realized it was just stupid human error, of which I am guilty quite often :).
I guess I get excited to easily! The problem was rectified quickly, and I am
way impressed with the way this is working. Once again, I'll let ya know how
the mileage improves, 10% of 8.5 aint much, but every bit helps, especially
with the 1.27 Im paying for cheap stuff that my truck doesn't really like.
