The End of "Tuners"?

Jeff gets a no-prize with a (now illegal) big wing on the back for bringing us this worrying report about a Canadian insurance development:

As with muscle cars of yore, which faded away as much because of jacked-up insurance rates as the triple whammy of high gas prices, government emissions rules and safety regulations, insurance companies are embarking on a collision course with the booming population of drivers who insist on tuning their sport compact rides

I've seen insurance companies do this twice now, once to the original muscle cars in the early 70s, and again in the mid 90s when the pony cars and "serious" Japanese stuff got really fast. They're not all ricers, and dammit it's my car let me do what I want to it. This is definitely a trend to keep an eye one.
