It sucks to be in his position, i have also been there, but you are not liable. Yes he can sue you but he most likely will not (anyone can sue anyone but as far as I know he has no ground pertaining to the law.) As a private party sale it is the buyers responsibility to have it inspected. It is the sellers responsibility to smog it. You are in the clear.
I was supposed to get it smogged? I didn't know that... They said they would take care of it so idk. Anyway thanks for the advice guys, I appreciate the feedback.
