I wondered about that because in our county and surrounding counties you must pass an emissions test before you can get it registered and licensed. There's no way it could pass with the gas drip, drip, dripping. It passed every other time with no problem, but this is pretty obvious and dangerous.

I also thought it was strange that they never drove it, just turned it on and checked under the hood. It was 2 couples in their 50's-early 60's who said they were buying it for one of their brothers to drive.

But what made me most uncomfortable was that while the men put the plates on it one of the women asked me if I go to church! If her religion is going to fix that gas leak, then bless her little heart and good luck. I already had her cash in my pocket, I was ready for them and the old car to just be done and gone.
