Your car is to new. 75 and older I think. It does not change, your state government saw to that when they got rid of the rolling exemptions.

74 is the cut off now. it used to be every 20 years, but now the 1974 model year is the last.

not hard to pass smog and build power. What are you trying to do? I had a '80 chevy swb that had 400hp and smoged will little effort.

YOU SURE IT IS 74, CAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS 75 ALSO. I KNOW THAT 76 WAS WHEN THE CATY CONVERTS CAME INTO AFFECT CAUSE POPS HAD A 76 BUICK SKYLARK. AND THAT WAS THE FIRST YEAR FROM WHAT I REMEMBER.

IT IS 1976. THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA HAS NO PLANS TO CHANGE IT. NOT TOO LONG AGO A BILL WAS DEFEATED BY A GROUP OF CAR ENTHUSIASTS, THAT WOULD MAKE '75 AND OLDER VEHICLES REQUIRED TO GET A SMOG CHECK LIKE THEY DO IN ARIZONA.

i hate smog laws..it should be any car 15 yrs or older..u don't see that many older cars on the streets anymore..at least not as daily drivers..my bro in law has a truck he wrecked with a 454 in it that was just rebuilt..that shit would be off the hook in my regal
