Yep...no cowl. They needed every inch of space under the hood.

It is a factory built race car.
As mentioned, it has no VIN
Also, will not meet any federal emissions standards.

You won't be able to get any state to issue a license plate for it.

Pretty sure it doesn't have the required safety equipment. That would be the biggest reason. No "side impact" protection (roll bar doesn't count). I believe stability control is mandatory now also. Of course there are no airbags. And as mentioned, not even close to passing emissions.

I believe it even has lexan or plexiglass windows, at least on the side windows!?!?! Lot's of stuff preventing this car from being street legal. But I sure wish I could afford one!!!

I cannot stand the color of this particular car though. White with baby blue stripes? Yuk!! Could look much meaner with a more aggressive paint job.
