    Re: ATTRITION RATE FOR 20 YR OLD CARS

    I really like the 3rd gens because they were the 2nd wave off real factory muscle that I was atually old enough brand new.The only thing I never really liked about it is that there isn't enough room under it for a true 2.5" exhaust under it.Basted torque arm . Indiana has the next best thing to the 25 yr rolling exemption, which is no inspection at all.

    20-year old cars are from 1990 ... who gives a rat's ass about those POS's ?

    I'm more concerned about the attrition rate of 60's & 70's muscle cars than modern day grocery getters !!
    :P
    In a few more years, that will be the LT1 F-bodies and other cars that got us climbing into the current smog approved power era.
    trouble prone wheezers , a 5.3 in a suburban will smoke any LT1 with the dreadful optispark .. and old cars can be run on the streets
    modded obd2 cars test the sense of humor meter at the NJMVC - screw em , drive fifties cars

    1990s cars... I live in a state that shows a bit of intelligence by the rolling 25 year exemption to smog rules.... so those cars - which mostly are devoid of airbags, easy to change to a carb intakes, and non-computer controlled transmissions can be hot rodded quite easily.

    heck it's follows the same reasons (beside gorgeous lines) to hot rod a 55-7 Chev - light, full frame, easy to mod.

    I'm certain cash for clunkers claimed a few of these vehicles, but I think just regular attrition is starting to take care of them in the rust belt.

    I haven't noticed a lack of any of these vehicles around here. Most are not the greatest shape, but they are around.

    I'm lucky I guess, I daily drive the formula and the z should be done within a month.
