I am sure this horse has been beat, but I just moved here from the east coast with a 1985 4Runner that has been slightly modified...so much so I am 100% sure that it will not pass emissions. So, I dove into the Colorado DMV rules about classic cars and found this as a reason for an exemption - Vehicles for the first 7 model years. I am not too sure what that means exactly. A 1985 4Runner is definitely within the first 7 model years of the 4Runner - if I am understanding that correctly.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

A brand new car doesn't need emissions testing for the first 7 years, based on the idea that cars that meet current standards also meet CO standards. Your vehicle is not exempt and will need to pass the emissions test unless it qualifies as a custom or rebuilt car.

I once lived in GA - and had (recently) a 1972 Ford Mustang (that I still have and have pictures of in my profile).
Emissions in GA are required, however with a classic car, those are waved.
It's a good thing, because there's no way I'd EVER put a catalytic converter on my 351C !

As long as your car was built after 1975, it needs an emission test.

my 4Runner is my profile picture as well...it is also licensed in SC, where we have no emissions test. I'll see about going to the custom car route and see how that pans out. Thanks
