Years ago, the sign on Nordstrom's said, "We won't be decking our halls until after Thanksgiving. We just like the idea of celebrating one holiday at a time."
At KLRC, we love the celebration of the Christmas season, but we also love Thanksgiving! And celebrating one holiday at a time. So after we've finished up a good meal with family and friends, and taken time to thank God for so many blessings, the Positive Difference will become the Holiday Difference, celebrating the Light of Christmas!

However, once the testing unit was no longer connected, the car reverted to a more powerful but much more pollutant process.
