Every legal source? There's only one legal source you should be looking at, and that is the VA penal code.

Get the information from the source before making conclusions.

Ive see antique cars all the time with open wheels in VA. there are some ways around it.

Also remember you dont have to get it inspected if its registered as a antique vehicle.

You best bet would be to call your local trooper office and ask to speak to someone about a antique highway vehicle and let them know what your doing and the history of the model and that it never came from the factory with fenders.

Don't tell them you've already been told you cant do it.

Oh I did. The legal sources I was speaking of, was attorneys in my area. I checked at VA's DMV as well.

Oh I have already. While waiting on certain items and parts to arrive, I check every option that's involved with an antique vehicle. You only have to get it inspected once and that's it. The form I have to fill out is in triplicate and usually takes about an hour to fill out which costs about $30 bucks for the form. The DMV was actually helpfull with all of my questions and so was the state police dept. Basicly what I was told about the open wheeled cars that I have seen myself was that they were either bought from another person who had it registered with another state, or they were grandfathered in when they did away with this law for about 2 years. They brought it back due to safety reasons, especially after the Firestone Tire problem that was occuring several years ago. That's the only reason the State of VA brought that law back. I do appreciate the info though. Any info pertaining to this issue is indeed helpful.
