Where did you get the car again? Is it from Japan? The pics look like it's RHD and I noticed the non-US bumpers.

And what makes it "street illegal"? If it has seat belts and working lights you should be fine, right? There's nothing illegal about RHD.

Well, one at a time here:

 

RHD = Legal

 

Cage = Legal

 

L20b = Legal (stock engine)

 

Side drafts = Technically not legal

 

But I think you are safe since they don't require emissions tests for a car this old now. You are "supposed to" have all emissions stuff in place (stock carb, etc.) but no one even knows what's "correct" anymore. Doubtful a cop would.

 

But I'm 34, not 17. I get hassled by the police about once every 3 years... ;)

 

Take it to a place that does inspections, they can tell you EXACTLY what you need and don't need.

I don't really see anything illegal on that car, exept for the seatbelts.

I live in SoCal too, and cops don't really mess with old school cars unless you do something stupid.

17 years old + fast Datto = doing something stupid eventually. ;)
