Only certain areas in Oregon have emissions testing, and some vehicles can go exempt, California is State wide and no exemptions. I don't know if it is true but in California if you have a classic car and have it in a show they want you to push them into the staging areas.

Prius....looked about...I'll buy closer to home...prices not so different..tax will be, but smog might prove a problem if California is different than Oregon. Just thought I'd read that the models sold in Oregon were the same as California for the Prius. Prius

If you check around I think you will find that any foreign cars have to meet California standards before that can be sold in the states.

California has the strictest smog standards. In the US there are two standards - California and everyone else. Just check the smog info under the hood, if it is 50 state approved then it will meet California requirements.

Tennis - California is bad but not quite that bad. Some counties have no smog inspections except when you sell a car. Cars that are 1975 model year and older are smog exempt. Can't say I have heard about the car show thing but shows I have been to let you drive them in. Nutty cites like Santa Monica could be that way though.

Some people with trailer queens probably push their cars by choice as starting them up might cost them 20 hours of detailing.
