Here in Minnesota we had no emissions until the 90's. Then the State built a butt load of emission testing stations which were huge drive in buildings. You know, because of the snow and cold. Then when Jesse Ventura became Governor of Minnesota he abolished them. Thank god for Jesse. Ever since the mid to late 90's we never had emission testings again. Buildings were knocked down or sold. Ya gotta love it when the Governor says get rid of those ridiculous things. Partially based on the theory that back in the 90's and earlier you really didn't have any old cars in MN because they rotted away due to road salt and the unprotected steel that was used back then.
