We are over half way into 2018 already. Here is a list of classic Japanese cars that are turning 25 years old, or have turned 25 years old in 2018.  At 25 years old a vehicle is exempt from NHTSA requirements.  At 21 years old in original configuration, a vehicle is EPA exempt. If you are in California or Hawaii, you have your own whole set of rules and regulations to deal with.
