Hi Folks,
My name is Pete, I live just outside Denver Colorado. I am in the process of rebuilding a Fiat 124 Spider, and I’m almost ready for a VIN inspection. I’ve had a few motorcycles done, and it’s a piece of cake, but I’ve never had a car done. What I’m wondering is if anyone has, and can give me details about the sort of thing they look at. I’m not talking about VIN verification. That’s the one that can be done anywhere and it’s just that, a verification of the VIN. What I’m talking about is the inspection where they actually look at your car and check it for safety. Yes I can read the DMVs page on it. I’m looking for more info than that. So, if anyone has done a rebuild, preferably on a classic car, and has had the VIN inspection, please pipe up. I have some questions for you. Thanks muchly!

Never lived in Colorado so not sure.

My 1965 C10 truck, in 1995 after buying it, safety inspection had to fix the horn, and switch for regular and high beams, they checked tires, emergency brake, signals etc.

2000 brought it to California, they insisted I bring it to a scale, and registered it as "commercial vehicle" I argued about it, but any pickup could be used for work, so all pickups were considered commercial and charged extra fees.

When I brought it to Arizona, it was super easy, no inspection, no weighing.

Just make sure everything is in good working order and bring it to them.

What I have found over the years of getting cars inspected is that even though there are clear cut specifications for the inspection process and should be an objective procedure, they usually wind up being subjective and it depends on who is inspecting it. I didn’t read the inspection procedure and specs when I built my ‘72 Monte Carlo and regretted it. I shaved the door handles and put a fuel cell In the trunk with no firewall between the trunk and passenger compartment. I could find some inspectors to pass one or the other, but not both. I eventually got it through, but it was a headache. My suggestion is to just read the procedure and specs. and check all of those things yourself before you get it done and you should be fine.

I'm hoping I'm replying correctly

I think the only way I'm going to get my answer is just giving it a try. There are no published guidelines, as far as I can see. I'm also not going to trudge through the my state's statutes to find out. Hell, just going would be faster. I have a few more detail things I have to clean up on that car before I think it will be ready, but as soon as I'm done with that, I'll just take it and off we go. Thanks for your help everyone!
