Re: Random Smog Checks Being Conducted in California
if 1975 and older cars are exempt, do the owners of these cars have reason to worry?
Yes and no. We are exempt from the annual/bi-annual test, but we are still required to have all of the factory smog equipment installed. There's a thread on Norcal1320.com where a guy got a ticket in his '75 and sent to the state ref.
The thing I don't understand is, 15 years ago when I had to smog my '66, all I was required to have was a PCV valve in my 289. But I'm under the impression that all cars sold in CA starting in '66 came with the thermacator system. I was never questioned about smog equipment back then.
