I need an inspection sticker for the state of MD. There is no way my car will pass, it's too set up for racing. That's how I bought it. I'm willing to pay a decent price. It's $60 for a legit inspection, I will pay up to $150-$200 for a sticker.

The car is considered historic and in Maryland now there is no inspection for historic or classic cars. Just go to the MVA and get your tags.

About those stickers, there is up to a $10,000 fine for that offense, not as easy as it was once.

I don't want classic tags. That means you can only drive on sundays. This car will be an everyday car. If I still don't need inspection to have it as an everyday car, let me know!

Historic tags once upon a time were restricted, I think that is no longer the case. MVA has a web site and all the forms that you need, check it out.

I don't know about Maryland, but in NJ Historic plates can be used only on a car used for show purposes, not a daily driver. AND, no legit place I know is going to put their state license in jeopardy selling a sticker! They have tens of thousands of dollars invested to lose if the state catches them. I have a friend who owns a reinspection center, and it's amazing the lengths he has to go through to account for each sticker to the State of NJ. My advice is buy a car that can be used as a daily driver.

The only way you'll have a problem with classic tags is if you commute with them. They are allowed for driving to and from events, and "General pleasure driving". That's a very broad brush, but I think as long as you're not commuting, you'll be OK. BTW If you're going to drive it on the road, make sure it's in inspectable condition anyway. It's not too much to expect you to have good brakes, glass, and mirrors.
When you say too set up for racing, I'd have to hear what would disqualify you from inspection. Racer 1320 goes 10's and is street legal.

There should be no discussion here...this guy is asking for someone to support his ILLEGAL REQUEST and I don't think Team Chevelle wants any association with that...just like we don't allow the sale of Vin Plates and the like.

Being you are new here, I will chalk it up to that alone.

Mike,
I agree 100000% And considering I live in Md, and drive to College Park once a week....I dont want any vehicle that wont pass a basic safety inspection on the road anyway.

you probaly could get away with using historic tags. i have them on my chevelle and drive it daily. ive never had any problems yet(about 25000 miles in the last 2 years). i could tag it normal because i am a state inspector but i like them $27 tags.

Thanks for your help. I better just make the changes to get it through inspection. It's not worth getting in trouble or getting anyone in trouble. Thanks!

I have to extend the exaust pipes all the way back over the axil, get offset pivot shafts (Can't afford at the moment) which will get done, but for now, I can throw a cheap pair of tires on the front and the only thing that will happen is that they will wear down a little faster. New headlamp switch. Bondo two small holes in the body. I'm afraid the seat belts won't pass (not sure) because they don't have a lap part, just shoulder. The interior dosn't have a carpet which exposes a small hole wear the cable for the 3 speed ratchet shift goes through to the trans. I don't have the chrome trim for the windsheild or back window (i don't think it makes a difference) and that's about it.
