    after the roof of my s-10 got crushed i am thinking about goig convertable. The windsheild got crushed so i cant make it like a 73-75. Is it legal to have no windsheild. Jeeps do it and so do motor cycles. What do you think about a s-10 doing it?

    For Illinois? I'd call up the Illinois DOT and ask them, get it straight from the horse's mouth.

    also does it have to be a special type, i was just looking at the damage and i could save most of the a pillar and use plexi glass, do you think this would fly?

    I don't know about IL specifically, but most (if not all) states require a windshield made from laminated glass.

    Either that or you have to wear what the MC guys wear - a helmet or just eye protection depending on the state.

    That's how it is in MI.
    If you have a windshield, it has to conform to standards but if you don't have one, you have to wear eye protection over 35mph.

    Check your local laws. You should be able to find something online.
    Don't bother calling a cop shop, though. They're generally clueless.
