Hot rods and classic cars in Nevada will get a break on some pollution laws. Governor Brian Sandoval has signed a bill that eliminates mandatory emissions tests on a classic car if the owner proves it hasn’t been driven more than 5,000 miles in the previous year. Existing law allows special license plates for older cars that give them a break on smog standards. The new law adds a $6 fee when the license plate is first issued and funnels that money to the DMV’s pollution control account. The law also closes a loophole so car owners don’t sign up for the special plates just to skirt smog rules.
