Tint: what about in IL? I have 20% all the way around on the van ( - front windshield) and I am about to do the same to the bonne once it is up and running again.

MNBC meet: no, when/where etc.

All right. . . . . . 2 say there is and 2 say there isn't. The 2 that say they have never heard of it are both 92'*. Usually there is a age exception to emission (10 years) or at least in the states I lived in that have emissions - Maybe that is the case?

I wouldn't if I didn't have to. . . . . .Internship I'll be going to school on the other side of MI and will prob. try to stay near the Big D area as long as I can (when not at school) - I just have too many friends and have too many hookups with people/companies to leave right now.

The car was 8 when I got it. None of the cars my family has had has ever had an inspection, nor my wife'* family, or anyone else I know has ever mentioned an inspection. I think it may be a county thing, like the more populated counties near Chicago.

I lived in Joliet, Oak Lawn, New Lenox, Frankfort and always had to have emissions done regardless of the year of the vehicle I owned. Things may have changed since I lived there but that is how it was.

I have all my vehicles registered in Belvidere (PO box works) and no emissions notices in the past 7 years.....
in the suburbs of chitown you will be required to take emissions (OBDII are nolonger run on the dyno'* as it is a PCM scan for fault codes (self diagnostic capability dontchya know...) but you cant clear all adaptives/codes and run in for the test, the vehicle has to have all drive cycle tests completed and passed otherwise they tell you to come back in a week when the PCM has retested itself...

my 68 Ford would have to go in for a test if it was registered near chicago, but not in belvidere/rockford area. it would just be an idle test anyway...and thats easy to fudge....

if ya get out here you can check out our twin engine 94 Olds 442 lol

regards, James
