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.
