Federal emission requirements started with the 1968 model year.

Colorado obviously doesn't care about what the federal requirements were when the vehicles were designed, certified by EPA and sold. The original requirements were in ppm of CO and HC. Now they are in grams per mile. The Colorado legislature keeps moving the goalposts.

I assume the underlying motivation is that the auto industry gives campaign contributions to lawmakers who will pass legislation which gets cars off the road so the industry can sell more new cars. Nowhere was this more blatant than the so-called "cash for clunkers" boondoggle several years ago.

I grew-up in Colorado Springs. I spent 16 years in Texas and the last year in Georgia.

I miss the people, the weather and the mountains...but everytime Colorado makes the news lately (or this type of thread) it makes me sick.

Well I just got my renewal for the '74 Pig (first renewal) and there is no emissions test required.

I also saw the following in the Latest Scoop magazine, where they were quoting Harold Naber on policy TR-13-19, issued by CO Dept of Revenue for the county clerks.

There are 3 categories of collector vehicles:
Cat A: 1975 and earlier w/ no e-test required
Cat B: Post '75 vehicles registered before Sept 2009 which were grandfathered in when the 25-year eligibility requirement was discontinued. These vehicles are not required to pass emission tests upon renewal.
Cat C: Post '75 vehicles at least 32 years old and newly eligible for collector series registration. Emission tests will be required every 5 years.

I think I got collector plates for my '78 40 prior to Sept 2009, I'll have to check. In which case I would guess there is no e-test, based on the above...

Sept 2009 is when they stopped the rolling 25 year rule.

If that cat b description is true then that's good news but I won't believe it until march of 2015 when I have to renew

Good info! That means both my '71 and '78 are good to go with no e-test (until they move the goalposts again). It also means that once I get my '76 back up, I only have to deal with it once every 5 years.

But if you renew in March of '15, then you are in Cat C, eh?

Or I guess it may be more accurate to say that you are NOT in Cat B if you got your classic plates in March of '10. If you simply renewed in March of '10 then it is a different story...

Last year I took my 78 to a small service station on about 40th and Federal. the guy opened the hood, put a wire on #1 spark plug, placed the sniffer in the exhaust, let it idle, pushed the spring on the carb to get a slightly higher RPM, said you passed. He gave me the paperwork and I was gone. This was NOT a Colorado State station, but a small business that can do pre 81 I believe? It worked very well for me. I will be back in April when I need to renew.
