    Thumper hasn't been regestered in 2 years. But the guy as paid it and it is paid up untill July.. I went down to DMV. To get a permit so I could get some exhaust work done and then drive it around for break in.. And then get it smogged. They will only give me a one day permit..They said I have to have proof that it wouldn't pass smog.. WTF is that.. I told her so I have to go and fail a smog test and get it tagged as a gross pulluter. Then have to drive it to a referee.. And pay again. She said YES.. I said a fix it ticket is only $10.00 bucks if I get caught..At that point I started swearing at her so I figured I better leave.. Just last month I got a 30 day permit on my Wives Buick to do the same thing...I had to stand in line for 45 minutes to listen to this ladies Bull.. Sorry had to vent...Dan

    Stuff like this is the reason why 1st Gen Blazers keep getting more expensive! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I hate dealing with smog on my vehicles. At least I always know that the K5 will be simple every year.

    Carry with you the proof that the fees have been paid. If the cop that stops you is in a good mood maybe he'll let you go.

    Man I have been looking for someone to smog my beast for 4 years. I have offered up to 400 bucks but cant find anyone. O well 2 more years and it will be smog excempt, CA smog is a crock of $hit, my rig passes the test but wont pass visual...WTF I thought all this was for cleaner air not more money in the pockets of the feds. If it blows cleans what does it matter whats under your hood?
    Rant over....
