California says no smog on vehicles 1975 and older. I have a 1978. On what year will I no longer need a smog certificate? At that time can I remove all smog equipment and/or drop in a different motor?
Basically, the State will not inspect any vehicle for 1975 or older. 1965 or older vehicles were considered "uncontrolled" vehicles, meaning there were no smog equipment requirements (one of the reasons a '65 Mustang is more desirable in CA than any other 60's model). Even with the inspection exemption for 1975 or older, it is still considered illegal to modify or alter the OEM smog equipment in any way. That doesn't stop people from doing so...just hope you don't get caught. (I had a '67 289c Mustang that I removed the smog pump and air injectors into the heads. Did it to remove the parasitic drag off the engine. Never needed an inspection, so The Man was none the wiser. Put it back on to obtain a certificate when I sold her)
Legally, if you own a 1966 or newer gasoline-powered vehicle, you cannot remove the OEM smog equipment. If you drop in a different motor, it must be of the same year or newer than the vehicle, and must have the OEM smog equipment functioning.

OK, so I live in oregon, and am going to Utah and Colorado next summer to go wheeling. The links to all 3 states are broken. Looks like someone needs to update the links for at least these three states...
