a local dealer has a very nice 79' 308. the body has a few flaws but those are easily fixed. as is the few interior flaws. the BIG question i have is this. the air pump was removed by the previous owner. i know that a early 80's gm piece will woek but i want to know if this car can pass emissions without a airpump? has stock exhaust, and a stock motor with 60k+ the odometer. btw thanks for any help given.

it's not a ferrari dealer. i should have said that it was not. they said it passed its last test 2 years ago but as far as i am concerned they are full of it. here in washington you dont do a under hood inspection just a sniffer test. and the registration was up 6 months ago. should the dealer selling the car have to be responceable for making the car pass?

well went to the dealer today and look the cars over again and drove it for a half hour or so. and decided to buy as long as the dealer was able to register the car for me. so now they are respencable for it passing. and i got that written on the bill of sale. that and the new brake and turn signal lenses they owe me for breaking them while moving a desk.

it still has the factory exhaust on it. from what i gather the guy gave the car to his russian wife and they divorced. so the car has been on consignment for awhile now. other than that i dont know. it has been pretty well maintained and all services up to this point are taken care of. i will get the chassis number tomarrow. i had it written down but i washed my jeans today and all my info i had noted was in them. :oops:
