EddieLo Posted July 5, 2015 Report Share Posted July 5, 2015 I just bought a 1984 El Dorado that looks like it just came off the Linden, New Jersey line. It has 38K miles on the odometer, in flawless, mint condition and actually looks like new inside and out. It's on the island of Kauai and I plan to ship it to California as soon as I change the title to my name. It will need a Hawaii safety check, which will easily pass (good tires, all lights working, horn working, etc) However, I'm now wondering if it's CA approved? Will I have any emission modifications I have to worry about? You know California, they don't care if your tires are bald, or you have no brakes, or the windshield is cracked in a million pieces, or none of your lights work, all they're interested in is it passes smog inspection. If I have to modify emissions, and it ends up costing too much, I'll just leave it here and enjoy it when I return (I have a home here). I know *nothing* about this car. I do have a 1996 Seville in San Jose that is an absolute joy to drive. But I like the El Dorado design. I have seen them online for up to $15,000 that don't look as nice as mine. I paid $4,000 for it. The car has been parked inside all of its life, next to a 67 Camaro, and a 1973 Chevy SS convertible that are kept in like-new condition. All have been mostly driven in parades. I will be the second owner. Any ideas, suggestions, or information on this model highly appreciated. Eddie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
