.... I PASSED! (can you name that movie?)

Got through the Boulder emmissions today in my 76 fj40. FWIW, they never even opened the hood to check for smog equipment... which is awesome because most of it was MIA.

End of the month renewals and they were slammed, might be a good tip for getting an old cruiser through, they were not checking to much stuff.

I know I know! Just saw that movie for the first time...Tommy Boy! What do I win? Tires? Master Cylinder? :hill:

Great flick!

I can crap in a box and mark it warranteed...

As for emissions inspections - never say never. CO won't give up fed highway dollars if we keep growing that brown cloud... :blah:

I didn't think you'd have a problem up there. When I took my '76 through they opened the hood because I didn't have a tach, never said a word about the fact that my entire exhaust system consisted of a header and a muffler, nothing else.

Congrats, those 5 year plates are great, especially about this time next year when you're NOT sending in your renewal payment.

Yeah, it was easy. Matt your post last summer gave me the courage to try it out. THANKS!

Congrats! And cool avatar!

I just passed about a month ago and got my 5-year plates. I was just eligible for the first time (my FJ40 is a 1981 model).

Thanks Matt-

That is my girlfriend posing on my cruiser up on Rampart Range Rd. last fall in Colorado Springs. Nice day, great drive, great sunset, great gal... pretty much a great day.
