: : There's an article in today's Sacramento Bee about the current smog program not living up to its projected clean air standards. They go on to talk about the 30 year moving exemption and possibly rethinking its current plan. Right now, in 2004, 1974 vehicles will become smog exempt and the vehicle year would move up each year from that point on. For more on this check out

: FYI-Currently, it is only 73 and earlier vehicles that are smog exempt in CA, SB1175 which if passed will make 30 year and older vehicles exempt has not passed yet. Click on: for more info.

Not quite right. According to the site you provided, it says "Q: When will my post-1974 model year vehicle become exempt from Smog Check?
A: 1974 and subsequent model year vehicles will be exempt from Smog Check when they turn 30 years old. Under current law, a 1974 model year vehicle will be exempt in 2003, a 1975 in 2004, etc."

So the law has indeed passed for the rolling 30 year exemption, though it doesn't start till 2003.
