    How to get smog exempt in California?

    I know it's possible to get a newer carburated v8 to be smog exempt (not stock 70s engines) but what are the requirements and procedures exactly? I remember people talking about something like 200 or 500 "specially constructed cars" per year would be smog exempt or something, but I would like to know for sure

    Thanks for any info.

    A car registered as a kit or specialty vehicle is smog exempt (California, Im not sure about other states).As far as I know, skys the limit on engine mods.Prior to registration the vehicle needs to be inspected by the C.H.P. to make sure the brake,turn,headlights,emergency flashers and wind shield wipers work.Yes there is a limited number for registration (from what I've heard),so that should be done in early January.Keep your paper work or sales receipt and any photos of the build for the D.M.V. or C.H.P. in case they ask.
