That can happen in California too.

I emailed a guy that has a 84 110 diesel with CA plates. He said this:

"I had no problem getting it registered. I picked it up in Oregon trailered it back. It was a parts truck with an Oregon title. I put the truck back together drove it to a DMV. A guy came out looked it over for safty items and vin and issued a title. Because it was a diesel it was smog exempt. As to a V-8 they can be an issue do to the carborator it needs to be fuel injected. "

Variability again. All his numbers did match and it was a straight up 84 truck.

No such luck here. Brought in from UK to Long Beach(customs is another story). Seriously, all this crap fro a 2.5 PETROL. You hear all the stories, but who you get at the DMV, can make it sweet or sour for you. Will take Lizzy to compliance shop, and see what they say. Good luck to all who try in CA. Its a crap shoot. Literally, I got bags of it now. Live and learn eh.
Cheers

Older Diesels are not smogged. I registered a grey market one there back in 2003. It is a risk of course, but never underestimate how stupid the people who work at the DMV are. They can have the most stringent rules in the world, but if the monkey in the diaper that is processing your paperwork just had a banana, you are good to go.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Keep in mind, in CA they are not paid for 3 Fridays every month. It is getting harder to find any compassion in your cause, at the DMV. Of the roughly 8 or so I dealt with, one was fair, and one was actually helpful.The others are lucky to have a civil service job. It would be nice to have one standard here, not the carnival game we have. Just an observation. Sorry to all for the venting, but thank you for allowing a humble student of engineering to voice his anger.
Cheers All
