I'm not generally very active on here these days (well, I've been bored the last week but I'm not planning on making a habit of it)... I'm still an admin and do still care about the forum so I help out if I think it's needed. As one of the quieter sites it's easy for things to get missed as the staff doesn't need to be as vigilant.

It is against Federal law (and California law) to remove ANY factory equipped emissions component in the US without replacing it with a functional and DOT certified replacement... this even includes the gas cap. Even if your area doesn't require emissions testing Federal compliance is not thrown out the window and if you get pulled over they may still check for it AND ticket you; If you piss off an officer or he's just having a bad day and they know the law (I know, not a common event)... but well, sucks to be you. Know the law, it helps.

It benefits no one else if car related questions aren't posted for future users and takes away from the time I'm able to spend helping on the rest of the forum.

Just for the record, I bought my 1987 Supra turbo when I was 39. The car was 8 years old then. Now 17 years later, the car is 25 years old and I am 56. I Don't plan on stopping driving it anytime soon as I've just put on a new timing belt and water pump.
I overhauled the drivetrain in 1995 at 238,000 miles. Now it has 267,000 and shooting for 300,000 plus. The key is to replace parts when needed and keep up the maintanance.
I paid $5,200 when I bought it. Probably an equal amount in parts and maintance over the years. That works out to $611 per year. I did all the work my self except for tire changes and wheel alignment.
