Its really not as bad as you think. Well, at least it hasn't been for me all these years.

I actually just passed on mine yesterday: while my car was basically completely back to stock here's what the guy really looked at closely on visual:

-egr
-evap lines and charcoal cannister
-hotside of the egr
-looked underneath to make sure cat is in place

That's it.

And I'm fairly certain he didn't really know what he was looking at, or how it should look, just making sure there aren't disconnected lines or wires, stuff like that.
Since yours is a 91 it doesn't even have an egr iirc. And unless you go to some ultra crazy place that will check your bay vs a picture of what it should look like (I've never even seen one of those places, but heard some horror stories) I think you'll be fine.

You're not even obd2 dude. You'll be fine

Got it smogged... First place wouldn't touch it, but the 2nd didn't blink. I also had some cheap tires thrown on it all that's left is brakes and the top replacement. Then the fun can start

Well I had a 3000GT which was sold in Japan as a GTO, and I've just kept using the username.

Hi everyone! So I am new to Sacramento, I just moved up here from orange county and was looking for meets around the south sac area. I was only told about one off of Mack Rd and Franklin, there was a descent amount of people and cars. I got a drink and saw a vape shop. I'm in to vapeing so I walked in and was talking to the owner's. They actually want to start a meet in front of there shop every Saturday. I guess they are also car guys. They said that they will start it at 7:30pm if anyone was interested. It would be cool to meet up with miata people out here and make new friends.

I know about the SAMOA stuff, but I personally haven't been. I need to get out to one and talk to some people now that my car is running.
