In CT, you get an "early american" plate for 20 years old and an excemption for emissions at 25 years (for now anyway). I also know that if you show up with studded tires (between Nov and May) they won't put you on the dyno, just an idle test. Before building my special "cat tailpipe" I considered finding some studded wheels/tires I could use just to get past the rolling 25MPH dyno test.

I had a pos volvo 240 that needed testing a few years back and I just watched and smiled as the "tech" rolled the front wheels on the roller. I let him strap it down and get everything ready, then he got in and tried to get up to 25MPH. fortunately for him, he had it strapped down good and the concrete floor was smooth and slick. He almost $hit himself when the right rear started screaching away on the floor. I poked my head in and said "you know it's rear wheel drive, right?".
