    Register it just like a dune buggy. but i wouldnt bother with a windshield because you would be required to have wipers.

    well try going 65+ with no windshield.....wouldn't be hard to build one and use ajeep or landcruiser windshield that has the wipers on top. or just use the motor setup

    Do you think J.C. whitney sells that hood ornament with the cowboy hat? Who cares if you can't see the road! When we were in Colorado I saw a red rig that looked just like that with Texas plates parked in a hotel parking lot. He even had cats under it. I guess if you had everything the insp. man checks for then you should be good to go. I've been told there's a law about how far the tire can stick out of the fender but never heard of that enforced.

    Here is a link that i included to a post of yours on the Texas legality issue back in June/July. This is the "official" listing of all things included in the Texas DOT safety inspections.
