not in most states......problem is finding something else localy to replace them with
Bzzt. I cant understand that. Surely, the Alfetta GT is better unadorned and straight in its lines?Doing a resto on my Alfetta GT, dumping the US bumpers, but keeping the side markers...I like the look actually.
it's the other way around here in Texas...no emission testing on cars over 25 years old (used to be no emission testing at all until a few years ago), but they do test lights, brakes, horn, wipers, etcagain, the bi-annual inspection inspections here are just for emissions - a car could have no brakes or lights and it would still pass.
Besides, it rains all the time in Oregon. So there!
Its an interesting thing. I mean, the US was the most anal country about safety and initiated a lot of the items that I referred to in the first place yet, it seems as though you can get away without most of it!
That is precisely the how it's done here as well. It's based on how they left the showroom floor. Again, the average American doesn't even know what an Alfa is, let alone will be able to date it correctly, so it's quite easy to say "it came that way" and no one is going to challenge you. Additionally, even if a cop does see something illegal about your car, it's highly unlikely you'll be pulled over just for that (though you may get an add on to a speeding ticket, if you piss him off).Here in Australia, our "ADRs" are basically based upon what cars had WHEN they were new, and like America there are differences between states. Similarly, you're not about to get pulled over because some trivial detail on your car is missing etc..
