Ahh, but your 1966 Rambler didn't have to meet crazy <expletive> 1990's
caleefornyaie emissions standards that state nothing more noxious than pure
love and galactic joy can be exhausted from your tail pipe -- even though new
studies are showing that galactic joy causes mutant rats that want to conquer
the universe, and pure love -- well, we won't even go there.

Either way, the Rambler probably didn't have a catalytic converter stopping up
the exaust, nor some of the more "reduce air intake" based emissions systems.
I blame Canad^H^H^Hlifornia.
