Noteworthy Vehicle Inspection Rules

Reeeeeeeeeejected!

There are two states in the country that come to mind when you talk about extraordinarily strict vehicle safety and emissions inspections, California and Massachusetts.

eBay Now Has “My Vehicles”

Ebay just recently came out with a new feature that is still quite beta, but looks pretty good. It is called “My Vehicles”, and I feel like it is a big step in the right direction.  It allows users to save specific vehicles to their user name, which is great for people like myself that search for parts for the same car every time.

Since it is a beta version, eBay is trying to get users to test it out for them.  If you fill out a survey, you are entered into a contest where you have a chance to win a free trip to the SEMA show, and then dropped off in the “my vehicles” area.  Good stuff!  You can enter the contest a bunch of times, which of course I did because I like free stuff as much as anybody.  Here is the link to get you there.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

I personally think it would be pretty rad if a user could save a picture of their own car up there, and maybe have saved searches as well.  I’m sure cooler stuff is on the way. 1 step at a time!
