After having plates for a year I got a letter from the newly formed Import Task Force telling me I either got one of the before mentioned or I should proceed with selling the car to someone outside of Ca. You gotta love it here. They just closed the hi cap magazine loophole here too as of Jan 1
This makes no sense to me. The 25 year DOT/EPA exemption rule is a federal law. If the state of CA passes a law that says the 25 year rule does not apply here, couldn't it be struck down as unconstitutional?

There needs to be a big Import FAQ right on the main page of theses forums. It seems like there's at least two new import threads every week.
