[DML] Re: Emissions

Well lucky for me, this is the last year for emissions inspections for
cars made in 1981 for Washington State.  :)

In Washington, they don't care what you do to the car as long as it
passes the emissions specs set for that particular car.  That's great
for people who like to modify cars i.e. engine swaps.

Did I forget to mention that the emissions guy insisted that DeLorean
offered two engines for their cars?  Apparently, aside from the 2.8
Liter V6, there was a 2.9 Liter 4 cylinder.  I told him to just make
sure he marked me down as having the V6.

Oh the humanity!
