Regrettably, your information is incorrect.

The rolling 30 year exemption was repealed in 2005, per the following 
blurb from the Bureau of Automotive Repair, which is located at

"As of April 1, 2005, the 30 year rolling exemption was repealed. 
1976 and newer vehicles are now required to have smog check 
inspections for biennial registration renewals, change of ownership 
transactions and initial registration in California.

"Vehicles being inititally registered in California that were 
previously registered in another state are exempt from the biennial 
smog check inspection requirements if the vehicle is a 1975 or older 
model. All 1976 to current year vehicles are required to obtain a 
smog check certificate of compliance prior to initial registration in 

Deloreans will be subject to smog inspection in California until, if 
ever, subsequent legislation reverses the 2005 law.
