    If that's legal, then Jeff is right.
    Far from legal in Massachusetts... cars have to be inspected annually here...

    It's no different than a Rail buggy.. and Rails are pretty much seen on the road in every state.

    It's no big deal to license a Sprint car for the road, I've done it once or twice.. ;)

    Three of my "Street legal Sprint car Body and frame kits" have been sold and shipped to Cali. Keep an eye out for them!

    There is no such place as California, it is just a special effect created by Hollywood.

    Roll cage needed but maybe a Army tank would be better.

    It's laying on the floor (the lighting). I think it clamps on, I can't rermember. He had it at our last club meeting. Even more amazing- it has mechanical fuel injection.....on the street.....and it works fine. Pat Ganahl was quite taken back he can run that injection set-up on a street car w/o issue.

    Headlights? Taillights? Is it really legal or does it just have plates bolted on?

    A friend has a twin turbo LS1 sand buggy that seats 4 and has 20" + of travel front and rear with street legal plates, notice I did not say the buggy was street legal;)

    I have a 100" Nance champ car that I want to put on the street someday. I have been collecting parts for a couple of years now, but mine will be Ford powered.

    If it is under 1500 lbs., then it could theoretically be run without fenders.

    It has a windshield, and it looks like glass. Check the last two pictures, where it shows the car from the rear. It might have a piece of safety glass cut-down from another car, I suppose.

    Still, I suspect, at least in my neighborhood, that would be heading to the impound lot, while the owner worked on proving that it was legal, even if it is, technically.

    Ballsy, though. More power to him!

    You don't need fenders in California. I don't have fenders.


    Looks like it has glass to me.
