Good for California and their false sense of security. I bought a new Vega with California emission in 71. That Vega only made it 60 miles before it blew the head gasket and only got 10 miles per gallon with a four cylinder engine. I bought a new 73 Nova SS350 with California emission and it was a dog. I bought a new 74 Dodge Crestwood with California emission and it was under powered. California emission ng baho, stinks.
Need to haul some groceries and friends to dinner ?? Skip the Vette and head on down to your Cadillac dealer. Grab a CTS-V sedan. It only makes 640 horses, but it does have four doors and a trunk.
Back then 300 horses was BIG horse power for the street. And yes they got single digit gas mileage. Today even fairly pedestrian cars make 300 plus. My company car is a Chevy Impala. 3.6 liter V6, makes 305 horses and averages a little 28 mpg.
All of these, and many more from other manufacturers, are available in all 50 states.
