  12. 25 year import ban on cars to the US
    1. “Officially, the ban on import cars younger than 25 years old is to keep unsafe and unclean vehicles off American roads, but the laws were passed more to protect U.S. dealers from the competition of cars directly imported from other markets.”
  13. Riffing zone…  
    1. Got a call from Liberty Chevrolet.  Made me start thinking about store names that try to create an image with words.  First off… Who thinks of liberty when they buy a car?
