FORMULA ONE IN ABU DHABI

I sure wish Formula One would go back to using Brazil as the last race of the year. Instead it is the snoozer of the year unless it is the decider for the championship. Valtteri Bottas cleanly started and finished in first. Giving him Second in the championship. His teammate, Lewis Hamilton, came in second. Third went to Sebastian Vettel both the race and the championship.

Nico Hulkenberg came in 6th and ended up in 6th for the championship. Massa  came in 10th for his 269th Grand Prix. He is now officially retired and I am going to miss him.

The Haas Team finshed off in 11th and 13th. Seventeen weeks until a new season.

FORMULA ONE IN BRAZIL

Always a good race in Brazil. Sebastian Vettel scooted into first place and liked it so much he stayed there. Valtteri Bottas came in second and the 'iceman' (Raikkonen) remained cool under pressure from Hamilton to take third. Hamilton showed why he is the champion by starting in last place and ending up in fourth. The man can drive. Max Verstappen broke the existing lap record of 13 years, held by Juan Pablo Montoya.....yes, he did drive in Formula One.

Nico Hulkenberg finished in 10th spot. The Haas Team finished with Grosjean in 15th and Magnussen 'out' by the end. Felipe Massa had another emotional send off from his countrymen. After his retirement last year he returned to fill the void left by Bottas going to Mercedes. He had a decent year and was willing to stay for another, but the team had several people lining up for the seat. As you know, he was one of my favorites and I will miss him. I have been following Formula One for more years than I care to say....I have seen many 'favorites' move on in the past and suspect that I will have another one next year.

TEXAS IS GOING CRAZY

While Texas state officials claim to be looking into the matter, the state’s DMV has outlawed any rebodied vehicles and has started to revoke titles and registrations for dune buggies in the state, a move that has provoked Texan kit car enthusiasts to start lobbying the state to re-legalize the vehicles.
As far back as 2013, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles put a halt to registrations of newly built dune buggies, grandfathering in previously built and registered dune buggies. While some owners of Volkswagen-based fiberglass-bodied beach cars reported success registering their kit cars under the donor vehicle’s identity, the state DMV in March 2015 adopted Texas Administrative Rule 217.3 (6), which explicitly made any vehicle “designed or determined by the department to be a dune buggy” ineligible for title “regardless of the vehicle’s previous title and/or registration.” The only other vehicles that, as a group, the Texas Administrative Code specifies as ineligible for title are race cars, off-road vehicles, and flooded cars.
Starting earlier this year, the Texas DMV has sent letters to dune buggy and sand rail owners in the state alerting them that their titles have been revoked and that the owners have to surrender the vehicle’s original title, windshield sticker, and license plates to the DMV. The letters note that the state considers dune buggies and sand rails “designed for off-road usage and may not be legally operated for use on Texas streets or public roadways.”
Adam Shaivitz, a spokesman for the Texas DMV, said the decision to ban dune buggies came about “because many of these vehicles do not have key safety components or do not have a body at all. These vehicles, as manufactured, were not designed for on-road use. These vehicles, as modified from previously manufactured vehicles, also do not keep their on-road qualities.”
While he said that the DMV is currently researching how other states regulate dune buggies, sand rails, and other rebodied vehicles, that process is in the early stages.
Vincent Parisien, the president of the Manx Club, said that the title revocations and the ban on dune buggy registrations amounts to discrimination without merit. “We’re not about making the streets more dangerous,” he said. “Our members are willing to go through all the same safety standards as other cars.”
However, as Parisien pointed out, a number of Texan dune buggy enthusiasts have already resorted to selling their vehicles out of state, and others have parked their dune buggies fearing both the devaluation of their vehicles and the risk of facing legal trouble if they were to drive them on the streets.
To counter the ban, he said Manx Club officials have contacted Texas State Representative Ed Thompson, who has already requested the Texas DMV rescind its ban; the SEMA Action Network; and the Historic Vehicle Association, which added Bruce Myers’s Old Red to the National Historic Vehicle Register in 2014.
In addition, Faron Smith, founder of the Save the Texas Dune Buggy Facebook group, late last month started a GoFundMe campaign to raise enough money to hire a lobbyist to work on behalf of Texan dune buggy enthusiasts.
That lobbyist, Ron Hinkle, has already worked to get the state of Texas to legalize the Polaris Slingshot, Smith wrote, and has agreed to take on the dune buggy case.
While the dune buggy ban only directly effects Texas residents, Parisien said it has implications for dune buggy and other specialty vehicle owners across the country.
“We definitely see this happening in other states,” he said. “If Texas deems this as the right way to operate then other states will do so as well.”
No other state in the country has a similar outright ban on dune buggies, though a number of them do refuse to issue titles or registration for sand rails.
As of this writing, the GoFundMe campaign has raised $3,260 of its $6,000 goal.
UPDATE: The Save the Texas Dune Buggy Facebook group has distributed a petition for Texas dune buggy owners to sign and postmark to the Texas DMV by November 9.

NOTE: In the early 90's I lived in Texas for a couple of years. In those days I liked their "government be damned" attitude. So, what is this, are the people really behind something like this? If Texas does this then other States will follow....this is terrible. During that time I owned a couple of Manx buggies, which are great fun. Building cars has been an American pastime since the invention of the automobile. I am sorry to see something like this even enter the pea-brain of some politician. Write them, maybe better minds will prevail.
