Re: Norbert's farts don't pass smog

Careful when you test the car in California. You don't want to fail smog consecutive times in California unless it was on a "pretest". California can label a "gross" poluter and could give you a hard time by having you test the car on a yearly basis or biannual on a "gold station"

1995 850 T5-R or 2000 V70R AWD which to buy

I have come across the opportunity to purchase a 1995 850 T5-R in gul yellow color. Car has been sitting and occasionally started for the past 3 years.body straight as an arrow no rust being a California car. Paint is sun faded. Nothing that a good polishing won't restore.
