    Friday the 13th turned out to be a good day for me :D
    I took the truck down to the tripple A office which has a DMV division. They gave me a temporary operating permit so I could get it weighed. Then i took the truck back to the office with the following things wrong with it

    514 Cadillac engine in it!
    NO smog equip what so ever
    Mufflers hanging down almost touching the ground
    tail lights held on by magnets
    wires EVERYWHERE in the cab
    the frame cut and patched about an inch from where the vin is... probably looked suspicious
    no grill
    no speedo at all, they asked me milage, i made up some BS 175,000
    i'm sure there is more too

    the guy was cool, he liked the truck from the get go :) he marked me down as passing all smog requirements and i got the truck registered today so now i can drive it legaly!
    I'm not going to gorman this weekend though because the steering is funky, i think its in the steering box, i'm not sure though

    Lucky is right! Lucky that he wasn't a picky guy who didn't like it. I would have thought that California would have been really strict about things like that. Glad you got it legal and almost ready to go! :D

    I can imagine the DMV guy handing you the go ahead, and that old Jerry Reed song from Smokey and the Bandit starts playing...

    East bound and down, loaded up and truckin'...
