    I recently insured my 1969 GTO with the applicable insurance described in this aticle. I then went to the DMV in Mesa Arizona and they told me they had not heard of this new law. Is it in effect or not. How can I get tags for my car ?

    Please help. Thanks.

    I eagerly opened my renewal slip for my 67 Chevelle, hoping to see the \”No Emissions Test Required\”, no luck. As the article reads \”It\’s expected in March\”, maybe March of 2010. I\’ve passed (knock on wood) every year since I\’ve owned the car, only after I have the car tuned and the carburetor adjusted – each year. As most collectors do, I drive the car less than 300 miles a year.

    I have read that they have moved the date this law goes into affect to April 30th 2007. Until then nothing changes :(

    Boneheads at DMV/ADEQ. Looks like I will have to pay 40 bucks for registration if I can\’t dial in my carbs just right the first time. Meanwhile, the illegals will drive down the street with no license, registration, insurance…spewing smoke out the back of their K car. Yeah…I am the problem here.

    Here’s one for you guys.
    After complying with the emissions idiots and putting my pipes all the way to the outside of the car. To make testing easier for them, I go back again wait in line, get on the dyno, and they failed me again!!!!
    This time there is a lady (Loosley translated) standing there with a mop. I was told she was the manager of the testing facility.
    She saw a drop of coolant hit her clean floor, and because of that they failed me!!
    Would not even test my 67 Lemans. The guy inputing into the computer was typing words like “Moderate body damage” and “sounds rough” into the puter. They have my vin etc. ,when did Maracopa Emission testors become the “Drip Police.”
    If this wasn’t the coolest car on the planet i’d make a planter out of it.
    Has anybody ever seen this level of “Big Brother” tactics before?
    Let me know.
