1976 and newer need to be tested every other year. They were at 1 time going to change the law to every 25 years, but they didn't realize that once they raised the year, all these old cars came out of the wood work. There was something like over 400% more cars then they anticipated put back on the road since they now didn't have to be smogged. They figured that since these cars weren't registered, they must not be around anymore. People were just storing them in their back yards. I saw the price literally triple almost overnight for pre-72 cars, then pre-74 took off.

You should have put money on it and then checked the DMV website.
