Dear Toyota Vehicle Owner:

The California Air Resources Board, with the aid of the Clean Air Vehicle Technology Center (CAVTC), is conducting a special program to evaluate the emissions performance of vehicles being driven in California. This program is an essential part ofÏthe state's efforts to reduce the amount of harmful pollutants in the air we breathe.

This letter has been sent to you because we are interested in testing your 1995 vehicle under this program. If you would like to participate, and your vehicle qualifies, we will need to borrow your vehicle for about a week. Because the success of this program relies on the support of vehicle owners like you, we are offering a range of incentives to encourage and reward your participation. In exchange for providing your vehicle, you will receive:

In addition, our technicians will inspect your vehicle and make necessary repairs at absolutely no cost to you. When testing is completed, we will return your vehicle cleaned, vacuumed, and with a full tank of gas.

If you are interested, please fill out and return the enclosed postage-paid card as soon as possible. We will contact you by phone to obtain additional information and to make arrangements for a vehicle exchange if your vehicle is accepted.

We hope you will participate in this important effort to improve air quality in California. If you have any questions, please call CAVTC at 510/785-3100.


Oreste M. Bevilaqua, President
