The reason it wasn't inspected is because the trucks emissions equipment wasn't in good enough shape to pass. This was back when they changed the smog test so I would have to run the truck on the dyno.
And the reason it wasn't registered or inspected, was that I only had non owners insurance, which does not allow a car to be reg. or insp.
And my 89 Chevy truck had problems, so I was kinda forced to drive it. I'm not riding on the bus.
I sold both of those trucks just to get rid of the problems.
in fact I saw my El Camino in the AutoTrader about a week later!
I wanted to call the guy and find out why he was selling it, but I had a feeling the guy had a few words for me I didn't want to hear.
The 89 wouldn't pass the smog test either, and had a reg. sticker
from another car on it.
Couldn't help it, I was too poor to fix anything at the time, and food comes first.

like you 4 jaw, mine was on a bike too,
first day with my bike liscense,and a new to me 1974 honda 750 four all tricked out,for a little tour to the next town.
i took off up a long street (age 18 at the time) am really moving, pass whatever was there, slow at the stop sign , and pull in to the candy store for a pop.
when i get out, who was there?can you say p-o-l-i-c-e- m-a-n??
didn't exactly know what to say so i just said hi.
first he took me back to the car and showed me the radar gun -102 m.p.h.. he said he had me for passing 2 cars in a no passing zone,while crossing railway tracks,in a residential area , at 102 m.p.h. and he could take my liscense NOW for at least two years.
he almost laughed aloud when he seen i just registered the bike and paid for my bike drivers liscense THAT DAY!!! I said nothing.
He passed me back my paperwork and said " i GUESS THIS IS YOUR LUCKY DAY" I thought i heard him , but was afraid to say what?
he said that he knew it was me , but he could not i.d.me or the bike , and he would let me keep my liscense because he felt for me (first day and all) and says , besides, we'll meet again soon ,and he said he hoped i was still alive then also.
that struck home to me and i only really went fast after that when i was drunk. (no) lol mike

Spun the tire through a light, standing on the seat of a Honda 900 Supersport motorcycle...one handed with one leg in the air...in the rain. Without a doubt the dumbest thing I have ever done.
Yes alchohol was involved, so were a couple of little hotties in the car next to me who I was showing off for. Boy did I get a surprise when I pulled into the next 7-11 to wait for them only to see a black/white nearly jump the boulevard chasing after me. Apparently the police officer was at the intersection and I passed right by him...DOH!
I said a lot of "yes sir...I'm sorry sir", never did see the girls...they just kept on going. That one cost me my drivers license for a whole year and pushed my demerits up to 27. Not my proudest moment, I thought I was going to jail for sure.

|BOBCRMAN@aol.com||I was married to one for 3 years!! (female State Trooper) That was trouble. But you have to realize they have one of the worst jobs out there. It gets really bad when you have to scrape babies, or pieces of people off the pavement, because of drunk-high, impaired ********* drivers. Then you get shot at doing your job.|

First time. driving through Crandall I had the sun in my eyes and didn't even see the light I ran, only at 15 mph. There were cops everywhere so I got pulled over, and the cop didn't care that the sun was in my eyes (dirty donut eating SOB) so I had to take DD for that one.
2nd time was in my 81 El Camino with expired plates, inspection and registration. I drove it for a month like that and nobody cared, until Drunkinville decided they needed more money.
I got fined by the cop, but I got out of most of that too.
3rd time was in my 77 Chevy truck, the cop pulled me over for having blue side marker lights on my truck.
Talked my way out of a ticket that time.
So far I've been staying out of trouble.
