Apparently it's the whole state that doesn't feel responsible.  It's
said that smog on Hawaii isn't a problem, because "it just blows
away," so they don't bother with it.  I guess the abundancy mentality
out there includes clean air.

It sounds like to be responsible everyone should have cats on their
cars, even those that are old enough to not need them by law.  Isn't
that like driving 55 on the autobahn, because it's the speed limit in
other places?  =)

We can all do more by abandoning our regular gas motors and going
hybrid, or biodiesel/wvo/svo.  They don't have any of the fuel here in
AZ, but Flexible Fuel vehicles that run E85 are on the market.

I thought he was asking for a set of test pipes, not cats.  Why would
he replace his undamaged oem 140k cats with some new Autosound ones?
Unless maybe he's going to buy them to hollow them out and put them
on?  =D  Okay, I knew what you meant; I'm just kidding.  My car is
still catted, btw.
