Can also get an address(p o box) in a county that doesn't smog, there are quite a few in CA.

I have heard of this, do you have any experience with it?

HAHAHA nice I see your problem, I would try getting your buddy at AAA to do it for you. The problem with Montana is that as soon as you see a cop you have to bounce, Montana is a popular place to register supercars to avoid paying taxes if you get pulled over once you could get away with telling them you're visiting or something but if get pulled over again you might not get so lucky.

Yeah, that's what I'm worried about. I'm not sure the specifics of driving a company-owned out of state car in CA since all the laws I can find are for residents. Rental companies like Uhaul, Enterprise, Hertz, etc all register in Arizona and seemingly face no repercussions.
