2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: Smog Check

April 07, 2011

New cars are our thing. We only delve into the used car world from time to time for something fun like a 1985 911, 1984 308 GTSi or in this case a 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. So it isn't common that our registration renewals include a smog-test due notice. That's just what happened with the Z06. Do you think it passed?

While we paid the $65 bill the station's owner said, "You passed but some of the readings weren't as good as they could be. Do you drive it around town a lot? I recommend you take it on a long drive. Maybe to Palm Springs. Let it burn off all those deposits." That sounds like a good idea to us.

We didn't perform with flying colors, but we passed.
