Purchased a new vehicle yesterday and traded-in one of my old ones. First time I traded in a vehicle in a long long time. Had to swear under oath, my trade-in was not modified in anyway. If they found any modifications, would be liable to pay the full value of the trade-in, plus their labor charges.
Even a back in 95 when I was hit by the idiot kid with 27 witnesses testifying against him, he crossed his yellow line in his no passing zone and hit me head on. His insurance companies hired a bunch of experts to learn if I modified my vehicle in anyway. My attorney warned me, even though it was his fault, his insurance company would not be liable.
This is how this F__ken country changed, don't even think about modifying a vehicle anymore. Use to be a lot of fun to drop in a Caddy engine in a 48 Ford coupe or other engine conversions. Not only that, but can get the EPA on your butt with a $25,000.00 fine.
