You are good. Emission are only for vehicles '96 and newer. You vehicle only requires the Safety Inspection. If you take the vehicle to a non-commercial inspection station,I think you will be good.

Safety Inspection Includes:
1. Horn
2. Windshield Wipers
3. Mirror
4. Steering
5. Seat Belts
6. Brakes (system)
7. Tires
8. Wheel Assembly
9. Exhaust System
10. Exhaust Emission System
11. Beam Indicator
12. Tail Lamps (2);
13. Stop Lamps (2);
14. License Plate Lamp (1)
15. Rear Red Reflectors (2
16. Turn Signal Lamps
17. Head Lamps (2)
18. Motor, Serial, or Vehicle Identification Number
19. Gas caps on vehicles 2-24 model years old

My experience with inspections have been really relaxed. They only checked the lights and horn. They didn't even bother looking under the car.

As I mentioned before, take to a shop owned by a guy name Cleatus, don't take it to a chain.

Everybody is visibly checking for cats in my area.
Told it was due to someone going around trying to set them up.
