SAN – SEMA Action Network

Congressional Legislation Would Allow Hobbyists to Buy Turn-Key Replica Cars

Legislation (H.R. 2675) has been introduced in the U.S. Congress that would allow companies to produce turn-key replicas for customers nationwide. 

The bill would enable enthusiasts to build their own replica car from a kit, while also providing the option of buying a completed replica car.  Lawmakers will vote on H.R. 2675 if there is enough support for the bill in Congress. 

We Urge You To Contact Your Member Of Congress (contact information below) Immediately And Ask Them To Co-Sponsor H.R. 2675

Where to find those cool Skull Car Air Freshners

For some time Captn Bob and Arlo have been giving away really cool air fresheners for the car enthusiast.

These fresheners are different from your typical “soccer van” variety. These are - way cool – bad to the bone – skulls that can be clipped on any air vent.

If anyone knows Captn Bob, you know he is big time into skulls.

And now for all of those who asked “Where in the Milwaukee area can I get one of these for my cool ride?” Your question has been answered.

Go to Moreland Plaza Pharmacy, 827 West Moreland Blvd., Waukesha, WI. Google MAP

Ask for the ExpressScent Skull clip air freshener.
