I think I saw this car on Craigslist.  Looks like a US car, would have had
EFI originally.  Make sure you know what Oklahoma laws have to say about
emissions equipment.  California and I think at least some other states
require all the original emissions equipment, including original carbs or
EFI, to be in place on a car of this vintage.  Regardless of the actual
emissions out the tailpipe, if it's had any changes to the fuel system,
cats removed, air pumps removed, etc., it cannot be registered and could
conceivably be impounded.  If this is the Craigslist car, it looked nice
in the photos but would have been impossible to register here in

Nick; I don't know if yours is a European car, with SU's, or like mine an 
ex-fuel injection car, wth a Holley 4 barrel carb. One of my catalytic 
converters finally clogged and began glowing red hot; shutting the car
Now I wouldn't advise doing anything illegal; but if you have no emission 
testing, or seek an examption, because it's a rare car, no longer
might be wise to remove and rod them out, then reinstall before your trip.
