The above information does not help CA owners who still have to deal with CA smog. Federal import laws do not address state registration requirements...Stick with the vintage cars. I am back to owning nothing post 1972. Even my daily is now a 1971 vintage.

Hi Aaron


Is US DOT still moving the 25yo cut-off up ever year?
I thought a while back they stopped that...

In CA the DMV / CARB stopped moving the smog cut off up every year several years back.
Currently all cars after 1975 still have to be smogged in CA.

What I don't get in all this is HOW a DR30 (for example) can then be legally registered and smogged in the state of CA.
Seems like the guys on here with DR30s are here out of state, or have the cars registered out of state, or aren't saying just what they had to do...

It will be interesting to research once 2014 rolls around...

-e

nothing legal about these cars except they've slid under the radar and haven't been caught

if california were a police state instead of a entitlement state, you'd see all these "can't understand how you reidgistered that" cars be impounded

i know because i've seen it before... and it's not the kit car exemption :wink:

Getting a DR30 registered in California has got to be somewhat of a miracle. I had the biggest headache when I was getting my '88 M3 registered, even though it was first sold here in California. (It went from California to Japan, to Canada, then I brought it back a year ago.) I had all the proof that it was a California car, proof that it was first sold here, it passed smog with all the original equipment, with all the proper paperwork. It still took them 4 months and my being pulled over for not having plates. I had to raise holy hell with them to get them to pull their heads out and ok the registration. And that was for a car first sold here in the state! How someone manages to get a car not even sold in the country at any time registered is beyond me.

I've been busy with the other cars - fixing one up to sell it, fixing up the other to keep it nice and pleasantly 100% reliable since it's the daily driver, and did just receive a box with replacement headgasket of the correct thickness for the hakosuka... so now i can pull head off and see what's up - i'll try to get to this next weekend if work schedule permits.

so no real news / update, sorry.
