So if I bring in my 1996 next year and the throw emissions codes, is that just going to be ignored and it'll pass the inspection now that it's older than 24 years?

They won't do an emission 'test' if you care is older than 24 years.

Probably. But laws are not the same everywhere.

TX state law exempts vehicles older than 24 years from having to comply with the emission testing and requirements. Those requirements only apply in the major metro areas anyway, though.

But in any case, that particular exemption is state-wide.
