I second the '84. It's been that way for a while. When I got my last inspection sticker in the spring the mechanic at the garage said the Commonwealth was considering rolling that forward since there weren't many of that vintage left. We would still be required to get the annual safety inspection according to that mechanic. The state still wants it's $29 from you......

so any car prior to 1984 doesn't need a smog certificate or emissions equipment?

so can I just cut off my muffler and put on some Harley pipes? :)

This just in from Boston.com

"Q. When I was in getting a sticker for my car last month, the inspector told me the program is changing. My car is a 1995 Chrysler, what will be required with my car?


A. Currently the inspection program consists of two tests: a yearly safety inspection and a biannual emissions inspection. Starting October 1, all vehicles 1996 and newer will be tested for both safety and emissions on an annual basis. Vehicles 1995 and older will receive only a safety inspection. In addition to this change, the other big change is cars will no longer be tested on dynamometers. All emissions testing will be performed using the car's computer diagnostic link."

Wooo hooo! I really really miss Boston.

Have a great day!
