Born and raised in San Diego, I remember those smog days of the 70's. It would hurt your chest and lungs to inhale deeply. You wouldn't believe it unless you experienced it. I imagine it was much worse in LA.

Re: For Those of Us Subject to CA Smog Testing

I live in LA also but but the emission standards of the older cars have little to do with the cleaner air , it is the newer cars that run much cleaner and OBD 2 cars run much cleaner than OBD 1 and that started in 1996 and the air been getting cleaner since then , the smog check system now is a money making thing for the state now and it is away to control what you drive .

The part that ridiculous is the extra money paid for the same part because it is CARB approved.

I grew up in the LA in the 60's and during 'smog alerts', it was even worse, the 70's cars at least had rudimentary emission devices and ran leaner.
I keep my cars a long time and having to test them every other year is a hassle but is the cost of cleaner air, it is so much cleaner than it was when I was a kid.
I'll pay the price.
Now, if we could go back to the population level of the 60's, that would be wonderful, the freeways actually worked all day long.
I hear Idaho is a good place to move.
