Yes, many of us, maybe most of us, use carbs since there is no emissions test for a replica 65 car. We used carbs even before this new set of regulations came along. It was just that you had to fail the emissions test, then get a waiver. My Cobra had waivers every year. Now the state doesn't even bother with that.

People in other states that do test emissions are going to Coyotes because they have to pass a test. Somebody out there was even having to install a catalyst.
