    I still get our drivers smogged here once every two years (03 and 05) but 67-80 have to do it yearly. And i think it's only required in Maricopa county (Phoenix and surrounding areas) and Pima i believe (Tucson)
    My 68 runs copper plates (antique tags) and isn't required to test (because i have collector car insurance) but is supposed to be limited in miles driven - insurance rules - not certain if there are restrictions on it with the antique plate.

    But with all of that said, I've not had any issues getting anything tested so far. Our nearest testing center allows 96 and newer to pull in and run OBD scan and you're done but they also have the pull on roller tests but i've only seen heavy trucks on them when i've been.

To me, that is insane and I would never do it! Being self employed, we can choose where home and work is so that keeps me here, for now that is!!

    I think almost everyone wants a way out of this state but when it comes down to it, it's very hard to leave and almost impossible to come back if you so choose. The store of value in real estate here in the SF bay area is incredible. Homes doubling in price in less than 10 years... If you own one, you aren't complaining!

    Kim and I are planning to NOT be in CA forever, we are going WEST ;)

    Canít be simply earlier than 2000 because many years did not even have smog.
