    1971 is pre-smog. Most EPA laws first hit cars for the first time in 1972. Even then it was almost nothing and no tailpipe standard. It was 1972 when the compression and horsepower dramatically dropped on all cars. Some exemptions were given for some models for the next few years such as the Ford Cleveland, which could not meet EPA standards.

    I am not removing anything. I am not going to restore her. She is my youth and I know where each and every scratch and bump came from.

    It has been years learning that I don't have to have every one of my cars in perfect condition. That was a hard lesson to learn.

    Unrestored is highly respected and restoration can reduce value on some vehicles and other antiques.

    I hope for his sake that is true.

    In Nevada a friend had a new Chevy truck engine in his '81 Z-28. This was back in the '90s. DMV told him it was an illegal engine Exchange. It was blowing 0s.

    They made him get a 1981 engine, from a Chevy station Wagon with a carb and he had a hard time getting it to pass smog.

    It seems counter productive to me if the goal is to have cleaner burning cars. Everybody knows 1981 was the worst year for cars ever.

    In Cali, they started around '68. EPA was why the LS-6 454 was only offered in 1970. However, emissions were mandatory timing sets and smog pumps for the most part. Catalytic converters become mandatory in 1776 for passenger cars.

    No, not yet. Statewide DEQ has been proposed several times but has been shot down. '71's smog system was so basic and useless that even Cali doesn't care about it anymore. However, during safety checks, smog equipment is visually checked.

    Not really. Everything I add will actually make it safer and more efficient. Brakes and E-Brake are given functional test not visual inspections, ie, drive car, slam on brakes, does car stop. For E-Brakes, the set the brake and try to start the car moving forwards, it holds, you pass. Safety checks are basic, not a TUV type inspection they have in Germany. I won't claim that it will be safe for 170 mph, but it will be tons safer than when it was stock.

    What should the officer do and what should the penalty be?

    Multiple choice, public vote.
    Am I the only one missing something? The poll references 20mph over the limit but the OP references a car going 170mph...?
