    I thought I'd give all of you a glimpse in to the exciting life I lead. I have this beater 2000 Mustang that is "my" car. It gets driven probably less than once a month. I just finished spending about what it is worth in repairs so that it would pass the stringent Texas auto inspection process.

    Some of you sharper eyed viewers may notice that the inspection is slightly expired. It's the bottom sticker.

    It's shredded because the guy that replaced my windshield tried to stick it back on the new one.

    On my way, I drove only about 8 miles but went through three cities. Here is a typical Texas High School football field that I passed on the way.

    I don't care. I posted a map to my house one time.

    Yeah a safety inspection. Emissions, tires, lights, wipers, windshield, the whole ball of wax. Not sure about brakes but I spent a fortune getting that done before I took it in.

    only commercial vehicles here are subject to intensive inspections. only thing that non-commercial vehicle owners have to worry about is an e-test every two years, and that's only if your car is between 5 and 20 years old.

    It's a beater. I bought my daughter a new car and took this one. It spent most of its time parked at my place or the airport. Yes, it's 6 cylinder.

    I expected this thread to suck.

    So far it's right on target.

    they're not doing them out East yet? probably not enough vehicles on thr road to be a worry out there. they started mandatory e-testing in Ontario about 10 years ago.
