RE: Reason #1 to stay the hell out of California
Being car enthusiast, when I moved to CA 20 years ago I was upset with the smog restriction.
Never passed smog on Chevy without putting at least $200 in it. But than Volvo never had any problems passing smog for 18 years of its life and Mercedes do the same.
So now, when I go to Chicago I am annoyed by the smoke coming off some tailpipes there.
One of the reason to stay away from that city? Naahhh... too many good friends there..... did I mention excellent kielbasa?
