Talking The $500 420 SEL Finally Passed Its Smog Inspection!

It took several tries before it passed, but remember, it wasn't running when we bought it. It had not been driven for about 3 years.

There were quite a few small things wrong with it, plus it needed a rebuilt fuel distributor and a front catalytic converter.

The smog numbers were:

%CO2: 14.7 %O2: 0.0
HC: 40 (102 allowed)
CO: 0.01 (.68 allowed)
NO: 26 (748 allowed)

Pretty good numbers, especially considering the car's history!

The total investment is now about $2,000, and it's registered and running great. There really doesn't seem to be too much else wrong with it.
