Not all counties require a biannual inspection, but all counties within California require the same smog inspection standards when you transfer the title of a vehicle. I bought a 1970 240Z due to this crap, if there was a better (legal) way I would have found it.

Additionally, the lack of a scheduled biannual inspection does NOT make the car smog exempt. If I find the wrong officer when driving my 240Z (or if I was in a "no biannual smog county") they could refer me to BAR and force me to make the car emission compliant again. Be kind when you get pulled over and this is very unlikely, but it is still possible.
Believe this is correct

Bingo!!

Iím not sure why people think itís only California that has these smog laws, itís only in 49 other states also lol California is full of liberal democratic hippies that care much more for the environment. Btw 2000 and up vehicles donít get a sniffer test once theyíve smogged once, just a visual and a DTC check.
