74 had to get smog in Calif? I'm sure its 75 and below that don't need smog

Yes, all the way back to 1967 if I remember. The law changed about 15 years ago.

What?  75 and older still do not require smog testing.

Check out sb 1239, looks like 1981 and below in Cali, will not need smog, but will need proof its a historic vehicle. Not sure if it passed will do more reading.

But they did require it a while back. When I had my 1971 510 street car I had to smog it. The law changed in CA to move the date up from 196? to 1975. That happened 15 or so years ago.

Spoke to soon, sb 1239 did not go through, dang it. It was 1966 and above at one time. This is why I picked up my 65 mustang fb, like 22 years ago. Bought my 71 510 in Oct. 2002 and didn't need smog, so that was 15 years ago.

For California the law used to be 25yrs or older did not require smog. I had to smog my 72' 1200 and my 74' B210 a few times. In 2000 or so, they changed the law to 75 and older did not require testing anymore.

And for years they have promised to re-instate the 25 year law. It's just a dangling carrot. It will never happen.

All you can do is vote someone else into office, and make sure you tell the one in that position now via email why you will be voting for the other person.

In Texas several politicians that got voted into office were recalled because they supported guns laws that the people that voted them in office didn't want, at least that is what I seen/heard said on the local public broadcasting station, the ones talking about it(rich folks) were obviously upset about all them politicians(they said Democrats) losing office from being recalled.

California is a single party state at this point. Many of the races are not even run offs between Democrat and Republican, but just between different Democrats. All of them want to add as many extra taxes and laws and restrictions as possible it seems like.

And adding to this, many of those liberals who live here end up not liking what they vote and depart to other states such as Oregon and Arizona to inflict their political agenda and try to ruin those places too. It's hard to imagine why anyone wanted governor Brown. Sigh...sorry neighboring states.
