Re: Arizona Residents Pay Attention - Registration Fee Increase...

You have a large amount of Californians that have moved there since the 90's. Now they are influencing AZ the same way they did in CA. Texas is going to be next. As I hear it, Prescott AZ has mostly CA's transplants there. Az is no longer going to be a conservative state.

I don't think it is going to move away from being a conservative state - it would be an utter and complete cesspool if it did. The fee needs to go away. I couldn't care less if DPS is funded - that money is supposed to already be there. The problem is that the legislature and the governor have been playing fast and loose with tax money, so we need to get them back in line.

The director of DPS was allowed to set the amount of the fee and that should NEVER happen - EVER. No one who is not elected by the people should EVER be allowed to set any fees/taxes/penalties AT ALL. And even then, any new taxes/fees/penalties should have to be approved by 85% of the voters (they already have to put new taxes before the voters here - that needs to be expanded).

Same here. My '16 Malibu was kinda pricey ,in comparison, to my other vehicles. I'll have to see if the receipt is anywhere but when I moved to AZ it cost right around $140 or so to register my '01 F150 for two years, Chevelle for five years, and get a drivers license. It's maddening. We left CA to get rid of the high cost of everything, except now I'm noticing more and more Californians coming here and trying to make it like CA. At least cost wise.

How were you able to register your Chevelle for 5 years?? If it is 1967 or newer, it has to be tested/registered every year. Or do you live in a non-emissions testing area??

Re: Arizona Residents Pay Attention - Registration Fee Increase...

Compared to other states, I guess Kansas in one of the cheapest.
I got my renewal notice for the two Chevelles yesterday - $17.00 each.
Antique tags due Feb. 1st, no testing of any kind, only proof of liability insurance.

Re: Arizona Residents Pay Attention - Registration Fee Increase...

Back when I lived there, I got a ten year Arizona Drivers license for $12.50 as I recall. May have changed since then though.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.

The license costs $12 now, but is good until you turn 65. Mine doesn't expire until 2034.

As far as I know the Phoenix area is the only place that requires smog testing. It was either four or five years I did the '71 for. I'm up in Chino Valley.

That explains it. Maricopa county and most of Pima county have to get emissions testing. Also, if you commute into Maricopa county from somewhere else for work each day, you also have to get tested.

Somebody up the thread pointed out that Prescott is pretty much all Californians. It's not wrong. I just hope they keep California crap in California. It's getting pretty nutty over there. I didn't realize how backwards the state was getting until leaving.

Re: Arizona Residents Pay Attention - Registration Fee Increase...

One thing I like about living in Tennessee - registration fee for a historical vehicle is $35 and you only have to pay it once.

And we don't have to go through the testing in Shelby County. They decided it was a waste of time and money and closed it down.

As usual, Andy is right
If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.

I have to keep reminding myself this isn't a Z16 convertible, Evening Orchid Camaro, or factory 1966 SS427 and get on with it.

When did you leave SoCal? What are you doing for work in Prescott? I like that area a lot.

Left in July of '16, and work at an aerospace shop running a lathe. Do you still have that '67? I remember seeing it at one of the Rod Runs in Temecula.
