Default D- ...Oh my gosh....

.... 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.

Great flick!

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

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.

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).
