    First question for Larry should've been, "Larry, are you legally blind?"
    Yes! Great, this inspection will be a snap!

    Yeah "VVK", leave all the amazing weather, beautiful women, and good times to us here in California. I am sure wherever you are is way better. Not.

    and sometimes a Yugo will get you a better car guy interaction than a classic Corvette.

    Did the car pass? If so, what kind of inspection passes a car with a 3k idle speed? Let me answer that for you: an inspection that is really another form of tax. That's why many of us don't want to live in CA, henry4hire. I'd move out of Clark County NV to avoid their BS inspection if it didn't make for such a long commute.

    "Wait. Actually, I gave it to a friend that needed some help at the time. Yeah. And I never saw him or the car again."

    @agentorange: You got it. The inspection is basically just another fee. It is visual only. Does it have a VIN? Is the car new enough to require a smog? That sort of stuff. Now the smog is where things get interesting. Without passing you don't get tags or plates. We are working on that part of the puzzle now. - Mike
