    1999 Limited 2WD; I never see 2WD T4Rs back home in Pennsylvania, because nobody wants them there. I was able to get the year of this one by running the license plate through the California Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) license plate lookup. It got smogged for the first time in 2010, which likely means that it came from another state. Due to the fact that it is 2WD and rust-free, I'm guessing it came from Arizona or Texas. According to the smog check records I found online, this T4R failed smog once in June 2014, twice in 2016 (June and August, respectively, with the second failure in August resulting in a referee inspection before it finally passed in October 2016), and a staggering fourth time in June 2020! Based on how well-maintained it looks from the outside, I'm guessing that it failed smog all four times for an incredibly stupid reason, and I blame California's draconian emissions testing laws more than I blame the owner; I've read all sorts of horror stories about fairly new vehicles not passing smog because the computer isn't ready, and other such nonsense...
