I think that the government should take care of the hazardous waste removal before the car tax. There are so many real and important problems in this country and i don't really understand how an institution can get involved so deeply in the most stupid ones. Historic vehicles are important in one way or another but i think that it could have been put on hold.

I wish I knew about it earlier, that would have been the perfect time for me to my old ford. Can you please share a resource on that? I need to get more information about my options.

After the cold war the Russians really outdone themselves in an effort to have a high-tech cyber-air force. I was looking for a free online virus scanner last week when I saw a demonstration video of one of the latest generation Russian helicopters, it was incredible!
