that was old school collector plates. a few years ago, that changed. now, you do not need an e test at all. walk into dmv, tell them you want collector plates, walk out with the plates. however, you can only get collector plates for 75 and older vehicles now. before it was 25 years old or older.

^^ thats how it worked for me. i was told i was -only- obligated to have the safety features that came with the vehicle. seat belts, turn signals, etc. my rig doesn't really have any of those things anyways. nobody ever even looked at it. no vin verification required either.

government funded my ass. where do you think the gov't gets their money? we pay for our roads. and if the gov't based your emissions scores on the emissions you put out then fine, but they don't...they require you to have things on your rig because they were on the engine when they were built. they don't care if you pass the sniffer with flying colors...those parts arent there, you fail. to top it off, your car is being tested by some kid who probably doesn't even have a car himself. emissions testing is one big scam.

Yup. NPR recently did a news story covering an audit of the program. basically the conclusion was that we sink hundreds of millions of dollars into the air care program, for what may be at best a 3% improvement that they can't effectively verify.

its a private contractor sucking down our tax dollars for no benefit to the greater public.

I have a 1970 40 with a 350 out of a 92 Buick. Sniff test was all that was needed and passed 3 years in a row, first two years standard plates and now I have collector plates. I do have the original vin plate on the truck. No cats required in 70, . I am injected and live in Douglas county.

I would say go for it if your putting a newer motor in your rig, you should not have any issues.

I knew they changed things, especially deleting the rolling 25 year rule (my 76 no longer qualifies, I'm never letting those collector plates expire!) but I didn't realize they no longer require an e-test even for the initial license. Either way, OP shouldn't have any issues regardless of what he does.
