Good news for you California guys
If it passes still has a long way but it's a start
It looks like the article is from last April. However, I hope that CA will finally pull its head out of it's ass and allow pre-1981 cars to be exempt!
It is shameful the:
"Calif. emissions test bill fails to meet passage deadline"
That was from 2016? Me think.
Current posting on SEMA action network
In a severe disappointment for the old-car hobby, the California Senate failed to gain final approval before the June 3 deadline for amended legislation (S.B. 1239) to exempt motor vehicles prior to the ’81 model year from the emissions-inspection requirement. Under the amended bill, vehicles manufactured after the ’76 model year but prior to the ’81 model year would have been exempted if the owner submitted proof that the vehicle was insured as a collector motor vehicle. This exemption would have been a two-year trial that would have needed to be renewed by separate legislation in order to continue. Current law requires the lifetime testing of all ’76 and newer model-year vehicles.
The failure of this should NOT have been a surprise, look around folks, the thought of these cars and the type of people who hate them, grows everyday.
So where do we Californians with 77 Camaros stand in 2018?
Are we now able to use non-CARB approved Headers and Intakes, and pull the smog crap off of our cars?
Fixed it for ya... (unless there's a stronger word than "hate" that I'm not aware of).
Believe me, I've been on the receiving end of that hatred from some wretchedly sanctimonious people, one of whom actually said (when I didn't "see her wisdom" of informing me how much pollution I'm responsible for) she hoped I "got some karma and crashed and killed myself for the harm I'm doing to the planet" from driving such a polluting vehicle. One guess as to what kind of car she was driving...
Any rate, Looneyfornia is already looking to ban the sale of gasoline powered cars altogether at this point... so somehow I think raising the model year of smog exemptions isn't going to be high on the priority list.
