    when I got the car...it had about 8 qts of oil in the oil pan and all inside the engine....


    first time I drove it...it was a Moskeeto fogger truck...


    a good tune up, some temp plates to drive it a week...and I had to go face a horribly strict system of a bass ackwards emmissions testing facillity ran by some person who couldn't speak english very good while they raped $20 from my wallet....


    when I popped open the gascap...the seal is all torn and cracked....

    the exhuast is held together at the seams with some tape and coat hangers...the exhaust tips litterally failed to hold the testing tip he stuck in.....it fell thru the rust...

    I forgot to play with the timing before the test....

    and the cat and O2 sensor is still on from 1986......


    o I was just going there to get a fail paper so I can still register the car and have some time to fix it and retest down the road.....




















    Ain't going to happen....



















    Airjockie's beater = 1





























    CT emmision test =0












    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:






    And holy crap...it passed ....with flying colors...


    HC (ppm) Limit is 333 I passed with 129
    CO (%) Limit is 1.07 I passed with 0.15
    NOx (ppm) Limit is 2333 I passed with 675

    RPM = 1941
    HP = 8.3
    gascap = pass

    :blink: :blink: :blink: :blink: :blink:

    The irony is, once you fix it up, it will fail.

    Oregon only has it up in the Portland Metro area. Down here in Bumblefuck nobody cares what you breathe as long as you don't die on their sidewalk.

    After the problem that the CT emissions had with people "ghost testing" and also the machines reading the wrong gas and causing people to fail, they are making it rediculously easy to pass. So that the program doesn't get any more attention put on it.
    I used to do them and cars with tons of miles, blowing every color smoke would pass. Even most taxi's.
