At least they can't you for $300 for an out of state smogger vehicle. I 
a car in Calif that had federal emissions and didn't want to pay the 300 clams.
You cannot convert it  to Calif emissions. It must be "Labeled" Calif., so I 
got a
Calif. emissions label and presto, no 300 dollar penalty! This time I stuck it 
them, hahahahhaha. Also, if anyone needs Calif emission labels I can get them. 
I need is a VIN for a Calif vehicle. See, I told ya'll, nothing but idiots in
