Question illegal to drive w/o hood?

hey i need to pick up a replacement hood but its in san diego i live in san banernardino about 2hrs away

question: is it illegal to drive w/o a hood?
-whats the worst that could happen if pulled over

cuz damn it would be so much easier to do so save about 100 bucks on shipping (having a hard time finding a truck and/or someone willing to drive down there)


yea i know its a stupid question but i need some response
thanx

all i can say is good luck.
i drove with no front, and my hood flew off a few miles from my house...
i was scared all the way back home cuz i had "illegal mods" on my motor
if you get pulled over just say that it flew off on the highway...lol

are you SR?

if your engine bay is cali legal i would not worry about it

just say you are going to pick your hood up.

although i didnt think it was illegal, a lot of guys around here drive around without hoods. i have thought about it..

as long as you dont have any bling and illegal mods youre fine.. my carbonfiber hood was stolen off my integra, i was too lazy to drive to my rents house and pick up the stock one so i drove around with no hood for 2 weeks, got pulled over and i just told the cop that my hood was stolen and i had no money for a new one yet. he looked at the motor and sent me on my way.

^What he said. I used to drive without a hood on my s13 all the time.


Fun fact: When you take the hood off of an s13 with no mods other than a cone filter, the engine sounds nearly identical to that of a B16 under full throttle acceleration. lol

It is a fire hazard to not have an engine cover. Not legal.

yeah its definately illegal to drive without a hood, without a bumper, without fenders. without doors, windshield down.

all illegal far as ive heard.

but if your stock, go get your hood if a cop pulls you over your on your way to get one worst he would do is give a fix it ticket. to prove it.

just tell them it got stolen, they dont give a shit unless you have aftermarket stuff under the hood.

he's offering an idea for an excusw to give the cops and the dmv as to why you would drive without a hood. so yeah, it has to do with driving without a hood.

i've driven without a bumper cover a few times.. never got pulled over, but if i had been i would have just said i was in an accident or whatever.

'pete_07' posted the 100% legal/the way you are "supposed" to go about doing it.

imo, I would just go. Drive there and install it when you pick it up, it's only like 4 bolts.

I'd do it even if I had crazy mods on an SR. Drive normal, and if you see any cops, just try to hide behind cars etc.

you my friend are insane. or bullshitting.

i have a hood. and everytime i see a cop i try to hide behind cars ;P

one time i popped my hood to fix something so i could start my car and it was open for like 5 min on the side of a street and i was sweating balls.

it is not easy or fun or relaxing or anything but paranoia driving an SR and worrying about cops i drive like a old lady and i still stress cuz they could pull me over for anything, and have.

ive driven w/out a hood a couple of times and never had any problems. ive pulled up next to a couple of cops at red lights and they just look and nothin happened. one time a cop asked me where my hood was i told him that i was on my way to pick up a hood and that was it.

jsut depends what time of the month it is for the cop


BTW i live in the Lake Forest/ Irvine area
