1969 Camaro Emissions
I just bought a rotisserie restored 69' Camaro RS/SS 396. The car is restored completely to factory specifications. I have been looking at Colorado's emissions program as I will be required to have the vehicle pass or spend money to try and pass and if not, get a waiver, in order to get the tags for the car. I don't want some kid at a required Colorado sanctioned air emissions repair facility screwing around with the engine/carb to get it to pass. Has anyone had experience with doing this and what should I expect? I am wondering if they force you to spend money on a catelytic converter or some other bogus emissions hardware. Can anyone give some advice?

As far as I know everything that was on the car factory must be there.In your case if its a non-Ca. car I think you need a PCV,the origanal aircleaner,and the right vacuum line hook ups.I think evan headers are legal cause theres no Cats and duel exhuast was factory.If it had a heat riser tube for the air cleaner thats required.
With a good tune up and as long as you don't have crazy race parts(9,000,000duration cam etc..) I think you'll pass.If not steal some plates and drive it anyway!!!!

I'm not sure about Colorado's laws but in many states a 1969 car would be considered an antique and would be exempt from emission laws.

Some states also have hobbyist plates that exempt your car from testing.

Thanks for the info. The engine is a new rebuild so I guess I shouldn't really expect any major problems unless something is missing that I don't know about. I guess I need to buy a factory engine manual.
