Has any member been succesful bringing a NEW out of state shelby gt500 into california? It's been stated that the gt500 is 50 state emissions compliant. The problem is that california requires that the emissions label states california compliant and california emissions is an option on the GT500.I would appreciate any feedback on this subject :confused:

I did read those threads . I have friends that have registered illegal dual purpose motorcycles and others that hit a brick wall. It seems its dependent on the DMV office. I saw that 1 member pulled it off in san diego but wondered if anyone else did or ran into problems. The california emmisions compliant requirement is what's bothering me. I may just have to wait till 2008 to play it safe. Thank you for the input. GGBIW

Perhaps if you frequent a AAA office in your area and have a working relationship with an employee there, they may be able to get the paperwork through...might be a longshot, but still worth a try....The CA DMV is becoming less user friendly by the day...:)

Thanks. I'm getting to the point of putting the money into my current car and give up on another car.Havn't given up just yet,but its not easy having a gt500 in your garage and not drive it.I really appreciate this forum as we have an awesome group of members. Our senior members are very knowledgeable and are more than willing to answer our questions.Hoping to meet some of you at an event.Maybe we could put something together for our forum. Hats off to all our members! :D :D :D GGBIW

I brought mine in from Ohio. It did not have the California emmissions option, but all the GT 500's are 50 state stickered. AAA cannot do the paper work and you will need to go to the DMV for inspection and registration.

You will also need to get it smog tested even though it is 50 state certified and new.
