Thanks for posting the actual language. Seems clear to me. Anything under 8 model years.
I don' t know how long the 1975 law has been in effect. I had a '71 Mach 1 I bough tin 1994 and it was exempt then.
I heard some talk of raising that to 1985...that would be great. NASCAR style T-Bird.
I'm not sure, but I think it's retroactive. I just paid my reg on my '14 (bought in July of '14) which would be 6 years. I should ask my cousin, he bought his '14 in Nov '13, so this November would be 7 years. That would be the test.
You guys are getting f'ed! What a pain in the ass!
Here is good old Commie-fornia, we don't have to smog a new car for 8 years! And then only every other year after that.
It was 6 years, but they changed it to 8 last year. You do have to pay a $25 fee each year.
It will be nice if it's really on the CD6. And if they keep it the same size.
I have a '14 GT that I really like, and I'm fixing to skip the S550.
If I was ready to buy a new car, I'd get a '20 GT-PP in Grabber Lime...but I'm just not ready.
I'm really looking forward to the next gen. I hope...
Awesome. And thanks for posting. Love watching these pros drive these stock cars.
I might be the only one, but as a NASCAR fan, I'd love to see a 350 or 500 going around the full oval. Yeah, it might not prove anything, and just be dick-swinging, but that's what I'd like to see.
If you had a 1.9% loan on a $50K car, the best thing to do would be to let the bank hold that for the 5 or 6 years it takes you to pay it off, and then take the $50K you got lying around and invest it it S&P 500 ETF, which makes 10% per year average, historically.
But what do I know?
A friend of a friend sent me these two photos from Sears Point Raceway today. Many GT500s in the garage area.
They all look new. This is listed as a PRIVATE EVENT (from Monday Sept 14 thru Sunday Sept 20)
That's a lot of cars for some press track event or whatever.
Anyone got any info on this?
I have a '14 GT, but I ditched all that crap and went with Borla X-pipe, Borla Mid pipes (no resonators, obviously) and Borla Stingers.
F-yeah it was worth it. It sounds rude, and very controllable with the pedal. No drone, quiet at a warm idle, wake the dead at WOT.
I feel like you could have tracked it? Maybe a little NASCAR tape on the hoot/fender line.
Sucks about your car man.
Five years ago, some lady rear ended m yin my brand new 2014 RED GT. They had to pull the rear pan out jus tlike a inch, replace the styrofoam bumper insert and paint and...
19 for sure. Only thing that would hold me back is the different ratios in the transmission between the 16 and the 19. Prefer the '16 ratios.
But I'd take that later engine, and I like the newest styling, and I like that it's more stock. I do love Recaros though.
What color are they?
