    This is just a curious question, since it doesn't yet apply to me, but I've been wondering how you guys go about getting your annual emissions inspection. Does FOA take care of that for you or do you actually go to one of these tents in a shopping center or your local garage and let the guy actually jump in your car and do it for you? With my cars, they have to get in and drive it on the 'wheelbar' for 5 minutes or so while I stand by and watch...?

    Are there emissions inspection stations that specialize in 'high-end' cars - if now, then that sounds like a good business opportunity...

    I bought my 308 from an individual in Atlanta and he had a little trouble one time getting the car to pass inspection. But now that I live in Alabama there is no inspection, so no problem.

    I got a buddy who owns one of the emissions tents, so I take my cars to him. He is an avid car enthusiast and I don't mind when he has to jump into my car for a couple of minutes to do the run.
