Any word of the list of cars that will go straight to STAR instead of regular smog check? I read something about that on the gov website.
If Subarus get this requirement, I may move out of CA. Frickin Hippie Lesbian Fagots!!!
I've already lost a car to BAR inspection/ Ref ticket in '05. Engine swap = totaled even though it would pass emissions and all OBDII checks. They said I either had to replace my gas tank and pump with one that matched the engine (impossible) or I could convert everything back to stock (engine, transmission, etc., etc.). Would have cost more than the car was worth
That is correct however there is no specific car that is directed Star, it can be any vehicle 1976-2007, any change of ownership and out of state is also directed.
