    Does anybody know what happened to 90blzr? We have a deal going on a 74 Blazer I'm supposed to be selling him but I can't get a hold of him. I need to get this thing sold.

    He has been back and forth between Missoirri(I know it's not spelled right /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif) and California these past couple of weeks. I got a couple of e-mails from him today so I will let him know to get on here and check things out. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I appreciate it. I have a 74 Blazer that he dropped me a deposit on but we haven't been able to finalize the transaction and the missus is on my butt to get it gone so I can finish up my 76. Although, with this new law going into effect in 1/05, I think 75's and earlier are going to start drawing a premium price. If we can't close the deal, I may sit on it a bit.....

    Update: Found his work e-mail which he asked to give to a few guys in PM. Couldn't find some of the usernames though that he listed. PM me if you are trying to get a hold of him and I will relay a message. His home computer is down and he only gets e-mail at work, but no internet.

    From the SEMA website:

    "We have just been informed that despite receiving thousands of messages in opposition to the bill, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has just signed A.B. 2683 into law. The new law repeals California’s current rolling emissions-test exemption for vehicles 30 years old and older and replaces it with a law requiring the lifetime testing of all 1976 and newer model-year vehicles."

    From another car enthusiast website:

    "A.B. 2683 is the legislation that would repeal the state's current rolling emissions-test exemption for vehicles 30 years old and older. The bill repeals the current pro-hobbyist exemption and replaces it with a law requiring the permanent testing of all 1976 and newer model-year vehicles. Under pressure from the Governor's office, bill sponsors amended the bill "allegedly" to protect the interests of car collectors. The amendments do no such thing and are being opposed by SEMA and the major car clubs and organizations in California."

    In summation, if you have a vehicle 1976 or newer, you will have to smog it forever. 1975 and prior will be exempt but no more rolling 30 yr. exemptions. I bought a 76 in anticipation of it being smog exempt next year. Now I am SOL on that account. I'm tempted to keep the 74 and transfer over all the goodies I built up on the 76 to the 74.
