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!

Ray-Ray & Grt Wh.,
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?
