Please take time out and sign this petition.

Stop using Homeland Security funds to seize imported vehicles, and change the DOT/EPA exemption to 15 years.

"The Department of Homeland Security spends a shockingly disproportionate amount of its budget not on security initiatives, but on customs seizures. In particular, importers of grey-market vehicles have been targeted by monies taxpayers have intended to be used to secure our country against terrorism and terrorist activity. We call upon the Executive Branch to immediately cease this wasteful activity, and furthermore to change the DOT/EPA exemption time on grey-market vehicles from 25 years to 15 years (to match the vehicle regulations of Canada), recognizing that the 25-year rule was enacted due to support from special interests such as Mercedes Benz North America."

I signed it over the weekend, but it was kind of a PITA. The registration system is cumbersome.

Even if this petition reaches the signatures needed, the chances of them changing "the 25 yr rule" is not likely. I signed it mostly for the "stop using homeland security funds" aspect.

Its a start. Once you get a few people going, you gain some more, and some more.

I do know the actual ins and outs of trying to get the laws changed, but it does require support. This is just a small gesture started by a R32 GT-R owner that lived in Korea for a number of years.

Its got some traction, but it really needs about 1000 people a day to get up to 25k signatures, just to get a response.
