New Zealand 110

I'm sure you all have seen this one. Looks really sharp. Has anyone here imported a V8 into California? If so, did it even come close to meeting smog requirements?? Thoughts? What are the California DMV hiccups that come along with an imported 110? I'm sure CA makes it hard on you.

There was a good thread by navydevildoc and others on the CA thing if you search around a little.

Sweet. Thank you! I will give it a search. CA is such a pain when it comes to this stuff.

aha, yeah ebay won't recognize the VIN so that's why it says 1980. sharp looking 110!!! I never imported when I lived in CA. SC is a breeze for the most part. no inspection but because of that you see some heaps on the road that are pretty dangerous. Was hard enough to bring a car into CA from another state! I'm sure it can be done though.

I found this thread:

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...highlight=smog

Which led me to this:
"Vehicles Purchased From Out of the Country (Grey Market)
California has special requirements for vehicles imported from other countries (including Canada and Mexico). It may be very costly or impossible to modify these vehicles to meet California emission requirements and/or federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS.) No direct import vehicle less than two years old can be converted to California emission standards. Not all direct import vehicles over two years old can be converted to California emission standards and FMVSS. No motorcycle or diesel powered vehicle can be converted to California emission standards. For details, contact the California Air Resources Board (ARB), or visit ARB online."
