Saftey/Emissions inspections have to be done annually.

The Parkway is a exceptional ride now that all the new pavement has been done, I just wish the TN side was as smooth, then I'd enjoy going to the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area more often

Deal's Gap/The Dragon's Tail is the best road in the whole of US, if you think taking a Camaro is fun, try a bike, its insane!!!

Do you think it is too late to go back and say something about the gas he wasted?

thats cool and like I said I'm not a ball buster about that kind of stuff like you found out thats more of an inspections deal.
We have State inspection stations at DMV here and it doesn't cost anything less shady stuff going on, but they can get strict as well. They made me take a tiny sticker off of the corner of my tag that my kid put there and they were going to fail my GMC Jimmy back in '96 because the factory glass looked like it was too tinted for them. WTF? Luckily a senior guy heard me get cranked up and overruled the other guy. Talk about screwed-- how in the hell do you get a lighter tinted window than from the factory? So I've been there trust me.
In reference to the gas yeah they are probably going to tell you to take a hike.lol But since you are USMC they better do it nicely. I know how you guys get. HA HA my Dad was Kilo 3/1 '68-'69

really? I am sorry, I have only driven an old car, (1990 Nissan 240sx),
and I have never had to do anything like that, only a smog check every 2 years, so I am very unfamiliar with the safety inspections.

The insurance requests this or state?

Or only on newer cars?


thanks for the info.

Tell me about it. I don't think I ever got one legititamately til I was around 30 and bought a new car.

Nowdays its a nightmare. The cops here can check your insurance, registration, and inspection status just by running your license plate. I got popped a few weeks ago. Thank God it was only for registration, because had the system that runs inspections been working he'd have noticed my sticker doesnt match the dates.

To get a new one is a nightmare. On '05s and later cars, they have to plug you into the emissions computer. It reads your VIN, so you can't just run another car in your place to pass. And unless your car is ran, they know your out of date, even with a current sticker. Good news is only some counties do emissions. Sadly, I live in one (Travis), but we've beem looking at houses outside of Austin and outside of Travis County. All the neighboring counties do not emmission test. Big Brother is everywhere.

I feel the same as the OP. I don't care for the state of NC. It's my right to voice it. Afterall, me and the OP have gone great lengths to make sure our oppinions can be voiced and so you can voice yours as well. So, feel free to find all the @$$holes you want from PA. In fact, you just did.

Hey in Arizona the only inspection you get is Emissions, and that is every other year or so on new cars. The roads here are excellent, and if you want twisties they are not far to be found.

we have state inspections here. but honestly I NEVER would take my camaro to a place called "family tire"
its some crazy ass sears auto store place to go.
your car is under warranty, take it to your dealer. 1 they are more professional, 2 the price for inspection is set by the state so its not any more expensive, and 3 somethings they find may be warrantied vs out of pocket at fly by night place.

The NC guys here with the annual state inspections need to go west- to Tennessee, where there are no required state inspections. Only six counties require an annual emissions inspection. And TN highways are rated third best in the nation by the nation's truckers.

Agreed brother!

To the other guy, you can do the same and go up to NH and find al the a'holes up there. Hell, you might not find one. But, just like GrtWht, I'm right here.

I lived in Chattanooga for 3 years. Went to school at East Ridge. I was only a kid then, so I didn't really get to enjoy the full experience of driving around TN. I was nice when I did live there though.

I think CA is it's own country when it comes to vehicle laws. Idk about your guy's inspections, I do know the you have to get your smog done every few years. Not sure what the interval is.

Just to add a little info to this, NC doesn't have stickers anymore. You hve to get your vehicle inspected before you register it. When you take it in to get inspected they run thier little emissions test and check all the safety stuff and it all hit Raleigh immediately via the computer system. So when you go to register it, the dmv sees is right then and there. The one cool thing the NC does, for us "out-of-staters", is they do "Courtesy Inspections" for other states. So if you have a vehicle registered in, for example, New Hampshire, NC will inspect your car and call it good. Once you get back into your state though, you'll have to get it re-inspected. Not sure if you have a certain amount of time to do it in though, or if it has to be done right away.

FL doesn't have any inspection what so ever. So people down there let thier vehicles go to s&#*. And they drive like idiots, so no one cares, then the roads go to crap as well. So I agree with you on that.

I was born in TN and would be back in an instant...if there were beaches. Got to have both mountains and ocean to play in!

Sounds like you two are made for each other. Never did care for people bashing my home.

I'm sure you can find something wrong with any state or place you live.

Exactly the same way here in Ky. They got rid of the VET testing years ago, never have had safety inspections. If they did, half the cars on the roads here would have to be crushed, I HATE seeing people not taking care of their cars, regardless of make/model.

The black'ed out tail lights or any black light on your car here in maryland is a no no period! I just dont see how some of you guys run around your state with those black out lights. Maybe you live in the boonies where you barely see peoples?
