    just when i thought i was finally done with everything for inspections the guy comes back from the road test and hands me a paper of all whats wrong so far. The funny thing is i didnt notice anything wrong.

    he wrote on the paper

    Alignment needed -I just got an alignment done like a month ago when i did the ball joints

    no parking lights - they are there with orange bulbs the covers were off

    High beam indicator doesnt work - it does it was sunny and he must of not seen it

    Defroster doesnt work - ok that was one thing that didnt work but took 5 mins to fix

    seat track loose - its a lil worn out with a lil play but i didnt think that it would fail from that

    no immisions - there were no immisions on a 73 blazer!

    Driver window inoperable - it works a littlehard to roll down at first but it goes up and down after the hard spot no biggie

    windshield squiter not working - ok my fault got a new pump

    was this guy being a little anal or what!

    i have 15 inch rims and tiny tires on the because my old tires wont pass because of the ball joint prob that i fixed so i would like to get it inspected so i can throw my old tires back on!!

    all the problems were fixed but now im afraid if i take it somewhere know they will tell me i need muffler bearings or something lol.

    Yeah, I've been there. Find a place your friends go where thay aren't a$$holes! Make sure it isn't many people around and they are usually easier on ya. Out of the city, Ask around every chance ya get. Took me a long time to find a "friendly" place!

    they roadtest you?

    holy yit, that sucks... there isn't anything on that list they'd even check here in Joysey, except maybe the parking lenses..... and our states pretty nazi-ish about inspection... tho they've slackened in recent years...

    You might be able to say no to the road test. If it happens again try that.

    Not in PA... Say "no" to something on inspection, and you don't get the pretty sticker with next year's date on it.

    Here in canada we only need to have it done when you first licence a vehical.

    darkshadow: Here in PA it's an annual ritual to get your vehicles inspected. If you live in certain areas (these days, it's most of the state) you also have to get emissions-checked. 'Bout $75 per vehicle if you need insp. + emiss.

    2High4U: The only "Buck" I know of in Bucks County is the Buck Hotel. Got any more info?

    Well i thought it was in buck county i think I pass bucks county when i go there, either way its not far from there.​

    they have 2wd\4wd cars and trucks go through a course with jumps and stuff pretty cool and you can enter your own car\truck if you want.

    they also have mud bogs the same nights as these.

    I think i may have finally found a place to take it where they arent gonna be dicks wish me luck!
