California Beemer-Need Advice
My daughter's old BMW doesn't run and will be too expensive to fix. A friend wants to buy it, rip out the engine and restore the car. According to the California DMV the car must be smogged before it can be sold but, it's a catch 22 because in order for it to pass the smog test it must be repaired. There must be some exemption from the smog test if the car doesn't run.
