SEMA Input Lessens Impact of Clunker Bill on Hobbyists

NULL - June 10, 2009

While the Spe­cial­ty Equip­ment Mar­ket Assn. opposed the “Cash For Clunk­ers” leg­is­la­tion, the auto trade group did per­suade law­mak­ers to place a 25-year lim­it on the age of trade-in vehi­cles. The bill also allows engines from clunk­ers to be recy­cled. The two pro­vi­sions will help safe­guard old­er vehi­cles for col­lec­tors and hob­by­ists.
