They only smog in counties above a certain population. Mine isn't one of them I got around smog in CA by driving pre-smog cars. What they have here are "safety" inspections. You gotta shop around a bit, some shops are tougher than others on the inspections. Highly annoying.

Miatas seem to be tough cars. Being low and light should make them naturals but I'm guessing the short gearing and maybe more aggressive ECU tuning has always held them back?
