      To a lot of the uninitiated all Hawks are Golden Hawks.

        Too bad the uninitiated don't just Google "Hawk Wiki". Wouldn't take but a couple minutes or so to identify the Hawk more accurately.

          Wow, we should have Sound Testing up here, half of the Rice Burners, Turbo Diesels and Motorcycles waking me up here, would be off the Road!

          The only problem is, if you started Vehicle Testing the Stater's would not know where to Stop, pretty soon it would be: Horn, Lights, Brake lights, Turn Signals, Steering, Alignment, Tires, Seat Belts, Emissions etc. , etc. , etc. Like some overkill Countrys and States do.

            I hear ya' Rich! We see cars every day with a red plastic film replacing a tail light lens, or (somewhat) clear plastic film for a window glass. That just screams "Insurance? We don't need no stinkin' insurance."
            So.....if I'm 'pre-approved' why do you want me to fill out an application?

              I go through all of that and more, even on vehicles that get driven less than 1K miles per year. I have thought that there should either be an exemption for vehicles that are rarely used or make the inspection period based on miles driven not time.

                Federal rules do allow states to exempt vehicles with antique/historic plates from emissions testing. Inspections for things like lights, steering, etc are up to the individual states and are not conducted to comply with federal regs.

                  Maybe it's just the video, but that thing is louder than my '62 GT Hawk with an overbored '64 R1 with R3 headers and open fender well dumps. At 3000 rpm it's still under 85 db. My GT doesn't even come remotely close to making the noise of my new neighbor's Harley.
