It's not exactly a smog truck but a trailer with rollers kind of like a mobile dyno, except I hardly think the chp or Whittier police dept are doing dyno tunning for the holidays.

This thing has been around for years...

If you watch for awhile you'll see a trend, white cars, four doors, pick up trucks. They have two officers standing near the entrance to the ramp pointing cars in.

If you have a recent smog cert (90 days) you can show it and they'll spit you out.

If you're tagged it's a fix it ticket yes but there is no longer any free rides, it'll cost you money to have it taken care of.



And that location, if they close one lane for inspections, it'll **** up that intersection right quick. All you need is one funeral and it'll be grid lock madness.

There was one last week on colima and fairway. Friend got pointed in to one, then they plugged something in to his obd2 (350Z slightly modded). They told him they were doing a "survey". After, telling him he had a check engine code and then let him go.

Nice heads up for the local people. I have a slightly on-topic question. I have a gutted cat and i passed SMOG in New Jersey. How is this possible? Or did the DMV guy just pass me due to him being clueless. Emissions is the ONLY thing they check in NJ too... How did they F that up?!

(I didnt know the cat was gutted till last week)

2 possible scenarios

1. Probably just let you pass without letting you know that you technically didn't passed
2. Smog guy probably doesn't care.
