VIN=Vehicle Identification number
So any numbers attached to the vehicle chassis could be used to ID it, making it a VIN, just like a homebuilt trailer.
I would guess it has something to do with emissions. I dont know the specs on the car but Im guessing it has LT, no cats, no EGR, none of that clean air crap that are required.

It probably could be registered as a kit car...maybe? that would eliminate a lot of the new car requirements. So, all one of has to do is hit the powerball and then have a really great 1st World Problem: How do I register my race car for the street...lol....I wish I had these types of problems!! Yea, that would be something cruising it around on a Fri or Sat and doing some street racing!! I would install a NOS bottle right next to the fire suppression system and it's good times!!

Due to the fact it would be registered as a homebuilt/kit car and not a regular production model it would be exempt from alot of the emissions/safety requirements. Just like the lotus was exempt from airbag requirements before they lost that exemption.

Here are some other "race cars" that are street legal

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...-without-issue

And if these can be made street legal than Im sure a mustang can be.

I guess FORD is not a crazy as I thought.. they still offer a BOSS 302!

That's cool if you are a racer I guess.

Well in Cali the smog is really strict. Here you get caught with LT's, no cats, EGR delete they will make your life hell trying to get tags if the car came OEM with them. Even kit cars get have very strick requirments and IIRC the state only gives a few hundered kit car "tags" a year. They test the smog on the kit cars and compair them with similar cars and you have to get them smogged every year.

Wanna blow your load - the interior of the one at Milham in Easton, PA. The Dealerships owner races it on weekends. It is his personal car.

How is it a fact that it would register as a kit car? Isn't this being sold as an off-road/race car only?
