Normally, government and car enthusiasts get along poorly. Whether it's lame attempts to ban nitrous oxide in street-legal vehicles or the manipulation of zoning regulations to make life difficult for those that work on their own vehicles, hot-rodders and legislators mix like oil and antifreeze. So imagine my surprise upon reading that SEMA has helped to form the State Automotive Enthusiast Leadership Caucus, a bipartisan group dedicated to raising awareness of auto enthusiast issues in each of its member's legislative bodies. Stuff like this might sound boring, but it really is of utmost importance for those of us who wish to enjoy our hobby in a legal manner. Please, if you have a moment, check out the list in the below link, and send the senator or representative for your state a quick message thanking him for his involvement.
