ahh, reminds me of my '89 Isuzu trooper -- well sort of -- heh

had no bumpers, three different color quarter-panels, 
and a built-in batman-style smoke screen (the gas pedal).

it was the *ultimate* machine for heading down to NYC.
speeding down 5th avenue, them cabbies would clear 
out like i was moses parting the yellow sea.

then my wife took it through emissions "for my birthday".
It of course failed, at which point (in Connecticut) 
they suspend your registration until you get it up 
to snuff -- far too expensive, my mechanic 
laughed and laughed.

what a system -- if your emissions are simply 
"expired", the worst you get is a $50 ticket. 
with no registration they take you downtown 
to have your picture put up next to RonL's...
