before we left, I tried to get the X smogged, but the new tech there looked @ the emission routing diagram on the intake manifold and said I failed visual inspection bcoz the carbon cannister is disconnected, but this same shop passed me two years ago with that same disconnected cannister! Any suggestions? Cheers- RB

would think Georgia would soon demand that you register there.

Any old hose that will fit the cannister, ends anchored into the firewall?

Rich, is your email working? Have you any news from Joachim?

As I understand it, emissions testing is not required throughout Georgia, just in certain areas .. but I'll defer to Peter for an authoritative statement.

tends to get a lil pi$$y about cars coming into the state with expired tags and ask a whole lotta questions as to why it was late to begin with, found that out with my van. I tell ya, this and the judicial system as far as traffic offences here (wife got a speeding ticket, a 65 in a 55, and it cost big money plus court fees, you dont do traffic school here to get it off ur insurance record here, you ask the judge to remove it, plead "nolo" & can only do this once every 5 years) has been a real eye opener, the traffic cops are mostly revenue chasers here, nothing like CA at all. So that has been my first big bubble bursting with GA lol. Fiat is still in CA until we find the funds to ship her out here.

... testers see the open bib and assume there should be something connected to it.

Still... I wouldn't bother wit CA registration... since you are registering a foreign car in GA anyway... just continue to plead your case there.

Tell them your move has been delayed so many times that it fell out of date while you were in the process of having it shipped and all.&nbsp; I believe this is mostly the truth... HA!

It would only make sense 'cause yur not driving it and wait to register it in GA when you get there.

My best to ya Rich... may this be your only hardship!

BTW, did your wife have GA plates on her car when she was cited?


My best,

here in Savannah, (where wife is working and we're takin a lil vacation as well), she registered the Eurovan and we found out that there is no emissions regulation here at all, in Atlanta there is, but nowhere near as strict as Cali, so with that being said, the X will be registered here lol. LOTS of grreat twisty roads out here too, can't wait to bring it out here and have some fun! And hey, Lowe's is already talking about putting another warehouse out in Santa Clarita, hmm....well, its a nice thought hehehe. It's nice out here, we'll see how the next few years treats us here, will do the touristy thing here and see Florida, D.C, the beaches in South Carolina, Atlanta etc for the time being. Cheers and hope all is well with you! - RB
