RE: RE: [T3] Emissions failure

<x-flowed>According to California DMV website "1973 and older year model vehicles are 
exempt from the smog certification requirements."  I've heard with Smog II 
and such that this limitation won't move anymore, all I know is I'm safe and 
sound with my 68 Bug and 69 Square, and hopefully soon to acquire a 62 TIV 
powered bug. :-)
