My brother went to school in Michigan.  At the time (late '90's) there was no smog test, no limit for window tint, and no front license plate required.  I always said I was going to register my car in Michigan.

There are no inspections that I'm aware of. Probably should be, when you see some of the junk on our streets...Rolling Eyes
It's probably the drivers that need an inspection Very Happy

Around here you can ice skate on the pool six months out of the year.

"Winter-Water Wonderland" = very hard water.

I dunno.

I've lived here all my life, except for four years in Phoenix (Mesa, working at the GM Desert Proving Ground).

When we were out there we'd do day trips almost every weekend:  Canyon Lake, Saguaro Lake, Tortilla Flats, Roosevelt Dam, Meteor Crater, Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Jerome, Sedona.  Even used it as a jumping off point for longer trips:  Pikes Peak, Durango, Bakersfield, Napa Valley.

We had one Sunday where the kids went sledding in Flag and that evening went swimming (outside) in Apache Junction.

We moved back here and were like:  "...now what?".

I'd love to get back out there if I could swing it.  I suppose the grass is always greener (and the dirt is always browner) on the other side.

I've lived in Michigan my whole life except three years in the military during the Korean war. Around here we call it "nine months of winter, and three months of tough sledding " Very Happy
That's not really true though. One thing is that we miss a lot of nasty weather during winter months, like there has been on the East coast this week.

That's a good one! I'll have to add it to the two I already use:

"Ten months of winter and two months of bad skiing."

"We have four seasons: winter, winter, winter, and road construction."

No emissions test required, no front license plate required but there IS a limitation on front window tint...I think one can only have a 4" strip across the top of the front windows.  you can have tint all the way around if you have some sort of medical requirement.  You can also get three types of license plates for your vintage auto: 1. regular "renew every year" plate 2. Historic Vehicle; good for 10 years with limitations on distance driven per year 3. "Year of manufacture plate"; good for 10 years also. Let's say your car was manufactured in 1975--you'd need a 1973 plate with a 75 "tab" (little sticker in the corner).  More licensing info at the Secretary of State: www.michigan.gov/sos

And since you're in Kalamazoo, be sure to check out the Gilmore Car Museum in  nearby Hickory Corners: http://www.gilmorecarmuseum.org/
