    Congratulations!

    And with this in mind, I'd like to remind you about one of our earliest conversations.

    "Don't worry, you will get your plates eventually."

        BTW, the smog referee told me that they are looking to tighten up the rules for SB100, apparently if it happens, you are going to have to prove that you built the car yourself. Probably not an issue for most Seven'ers, but it will rule out buying a used car like I did.

        Also the DMV is now not giving out temporary permits as freely as they used to, so I got lucky that I went through this process when I did.

        Furthermore, contrary to what many people told me, even though you get an SB100 Sequence number, you are not "home free" or guaranteed to be able to register the car. I have a friend who got a number, CHP inspection and then was denied by the Smog referee.

          Morgan

          Can you find out more about why he was denied by the smog ref?

          Did the smog ref give him a chance to correct the problem?

          Thanks.

            Well lets just say he was pushing the definition of what a specialty construction vehicle was, so don't think this would be an issue for anyone trying to register a Seven, but I had been told by a few people that once you get the sequence number (which he did) you are good to go and that you can't be denied.

            Not sure what options he was given

              Congratulations!

              Omedetou gozaimasu, Morgan-san! It is unfortunate for your friend to have been denied registration under SB100, but I am not surprised that they are scrutinizing applicants so much more stringently now that there are so many more than 500 applications for the sacred 500 numbers each year.

              Regarding the TOPs (Temporary Operating Permit), Division 3 Chapter 1 Article 2 Section 4156 of the California Vehicle Code has been amended to read, in part:
              "(2) Not more than one temporary permit may be issued pursuant to this subdivision to a vehicle owner in a two-year period."
              This part seems to me to be the crippler.

              The above went into effect on January 01 of this year. Full text can be found here, if you're interested: http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/d03/vc4156.htm

                I see the ref on the 27th and that should end my saga (a year on temps).

                I was just in the DMV a couple weeks ago and the whole temp thing is more cumbersome now. You have to pay $50 after the first one unless you have a really good excuse.... mine was the referee's machine broke the day of my original appointment and this was the next available appointment (true story).

                Anyway, hope to have it all behind me soon.

                I'm not surprised about the "homebuilt" proof as "turn-key minus" was started to get around the rules and they're probably selling a lot this way in the State. I'm sure dealers will find another way around it... don't get me wrong, mine was a "turn-key minus".

                Guess it will only make SB100 cars that more valuable...
