Your car won't get seized and crushed. Sure, the CRXes are falling under the 25-year exemption now, but the EPA may decide next year to issue a "clarification" of their rules stating that the exemption only applies to cars that are in every way identical to the US-market cars. Or only to cars made on Tuesday. Or some other such criteria.
And if that happens, welcome to crusher town!!
Before you say "Oh they can't do that", take a look at the fuss about their proposed "clarification" prohibiting turning street-licensed vehicles into track-only vehicles... (Or rather, mandating that all of the certified emissions equipment remain in use by the vehicle, even if it will never see the street again.)
Since they are merely "clarifying" the "existing rules", they can even claim not to be changing the rules so that you can't be "grandfathered" out of obeying them...
Yeah, it's a real slimy trick. And it's been done before!
What are you talking about? The article states that it's for MY '18 and newer to not have its emissions tampered with for becoming a race car.
Not sure where you're getting they will crush the cars from? It would be grandfathered in and I'm pretty sure Bill Gates and others have more at stake with their 959s as opposed to a few cleaner CRXs.
Yep at least you read it.
