RE: [T3] For whom the bell tolls...

I have done a smattering of research into this and it's nice to know at
least one of our members is an active member (Steve, goooo buddy!).  One
thing I would like to point out is that automobiles are being made with
recycling in mind.  I know VW uses plastics and metals that can be recycled.
Last I read about this (for VW) was 70% or more of the car is recyclable.  I
can't remember if they use recycled material in their vehicles, though.

Yes, the public assumes an old car is a gross-polluter.  Personally, I've
met far too many people whom I think are gross-polluters...and they
reproduce (which really makes me nauseous)!  We can thank slanted
advertising for this bigotry.  Best we can do is get involved and inform
others.  I try.  I use my '75 Porsche 914 as an example.  Even though it has
a tired engine it ALWAYS scored way low on the nasties emissions.

My .03cents of awareness,
