I also have that sticker under my hood. Mine was originally sold new in South Carolina but the last owner brought it to California where I got it used. You can register a car here that's not Cali-emissions certified and it'll pass smog/inspection but all new cars on the lots have to have the stricter emissions setup. Same deal with the Taurus I used to have- also not Cali-emissions certified.
I flew out to Detroit to buy mine and drove it back to Connecticut. I didn't realize that it was not 50 state certified until weeks after I got it.
