Question Georgia emissions laws?

First off, this is a great site and a helpful resource.

Ok, so I picked up an 86 fsb and am working on getting it roadworthy. It came with a carbed 302 from a 78 f100. I am going to run that while I am working on the carbed 351 it also came with.

My question is, what year is the cutoff for when you no longer need to pass emissions? I searched this site and the web and came up with no conclusive answer. I will be getting it registered in either paulding or Cobb county if that matters. I was told that for 2010, if it is from '85 or older, you don't have to pass a test. And in 2011, an 86 or older won't have to pass. But now I heard they were considering changing it or they did change it. I'm pretty confused. Thanks for your help.

I posted this in the Dixie chapter section because it asks about the laws in Georgia.

Also, does anyone have any advice for getting it to pass? Thanks.

I found this on the Georgia D.M.V. site.

All gasoline-powered passenger cars and light trucks 1982 and newer in the following Georgia counties must pass an emission inspection before being issued license plates:

Cherokee
Clayton
Cobb
Coweta
DeKalb
Douglas
Fayette
Forsyth
Fulton
Gwinnett
Henry
Paulding
Rockdale
Motorcycles, RVs, and motor homes do not require emissions testing.

The cost of emission testing varies from $10 to $25, depending on location.

If your vehicle does not pass the test, you will be required to make the necessary repairs and will be given one free retest within 30 days of the original test.

Go Dawgs!!!

i found that too but my girlfriend's mom said that as of last year, the dmv said that this year, 2010, a '85 would not have to pass emissions and that in 2011, an '86 vehicle wouldnt have to pass.

i guess ill have to get off my lazy butt and go to the dmv and ask.

and GO DAWGS!!!

If the vehicle is older than 25 years it does not have to be tested. It is not the "year" of the vehicle, its the AGE of the vehicle.

At 25, the vehicle is also eligible for hobby/antique vehicle plates.

That's what I thought. But then somebody at autozone said they were gonna change it. Just wanted to see if that rumor was true or not.

Thanks for all the replies.

Not really the news I wanted to hear since I have been In Cali the past 5 years dealing with their crap emission laws. I was hoping I could relax when I get home this May. Especially since i just blew a hole somewhere between my y-pipes and cats. I just can't ever win.

I wish we didn't have emissions testing. I cant pass the stupid thing. I do know that if you spend 200$ on your repairs your truck will pass for the year. But good luck next year!
