I am restoring a Superbird that is a California car.  Does anyone have any pictures of any CA car equipment.  I have a gas tank vent line that goes up front by the right front wheel.  I am told from there it goes to a charcoal canister in the front. then back to the valve covers.  Are these charcoal canisters even available anymore? Not sure if I want to put the line with canister back on, but I have to decide which vent line I am going to use.  The standard gas tank vent line or the one that goes to the front of the car.  What would you do?  I guess the front lines could be corrected at a later date if needed.

It isn't a big deal. '70 Cali cars and '71 up usually had them. The canister you would have would be the same as any other, except having three nipples instead of one in '70.. Typically, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the 3 nipples would be for the:

1. Air Cleaner base hose
2. the car float bowl vent hose (4bbl or 6bbl)
3. the fuel tank vent line/hose

I'll try and dig up some pictures... Won't be of a Superbird, it'll probably be a '70 Charger R/T.

Attached is a picture of my former 440 6bbl '70 Charger R/T that was a California car. You can clearly see the vent line along the passenger inner fender and the 3-nipple canister.

Looking at the picture;
1. the bottom-most smallest nipple is for the vent hose to the line
2. the middle-sized nipple is for the carb float vent hose
3. the largest-sized nipple is for the air cleaner base hose

I have a HEMI Superbird with the California emissions. There is NO charcoal canister. The thin line attaches to the 3 nipple oil
breather on the passenger side valve cover with a rubber hose. The other two nipples are for the bowl vent and the air cleaner like Troy described. I have a 3 nipple breather if you need one.  Wingnut426

Wingnut I would be interested in the 3 nipple breather if you have it.  Just message me and let me know how much you want for it.  I will have to dig up an old picture to show you to see if my vent line is the same as yours and the same place.  I think the one that is on my car is still the original.  Nascarxx29 I would like to see that trunk picture if you have it and can find it just to compare it to see if mine is the same.  Thanks guys.

Yep, this is what my vent tube looks like also, but my tube is still the original bare metal not painted at all.  Thanks.  If you still have a diagram on this that would be great.  That way I could check on it just to make sure everything is hooked up correctly when I am done with it.  Once again, thanks.

Thanks guys, the illustrations and pictures will help a lot.  I just went and reviewed the vent neck and that is exactly what it is.
