    you can drive without a hood..

    It's legal but you might get pulled over and some questions asked but you cannot get charged for drving without a hood..

    Depending where you are and what you're doing for. I drove without one to pick up a hood. I called the cops and they said it was fine as long as I did it for a reason and not do it all the time.

    Do you live in Scarborough? Is you car Silver?

    If so I wouldn't drive around without a hood until the cops find that hit and run guy that they're looking for.

    Want to bet if you painted it the same color as your car, they couldnt tell anyways. Crushpoint may not be existant... but hell... doesnt CF hood have the same problem?

    And no front bumper either (must have re-bar though)

    Law is messed up....Doesn't a hood help prevent a collapsed firewall and stuff ffrom a major front end collision?

    nope.. hoods are not structural so they really don't affect the saftey of the car in any way.. mind you they do protect the engine from unwanted contamination (flying rocks) and will help your fuel economy..

    If you go with a lexan hood.. just make sure in a collision it does not go flying off.. because then you will be charged...
