I an wondering if a 3 hour drive is safe without a hood. I need to drive to pickup a hood and the only thing that comes to min is takign my stock hood and driving without it and picking up the other one and installing it there. Opinions?

well i think literatly your car will be alright.. (as long as the weather stays nice) but i would try and make up a 'fake' throwaway hood, like cardboard or something dumb.. because no hood is a pulloverable offense, but a throwawayable one is fine =)

The biggest thing that I am worried about is overheating problems or something in that nature. Cops arent a big deal like I said.

Putting a fake hood on would be dangerous, as there is no way it would stay on. Just do as you had originally planned. Just make sure it is not going to rain or snow.

i drove from parma ohio to grand junction co with no hood once...well half the body of this truck was missing also. just keep the speeds at legal limits and all te connections inside should be fine.

if they pull you just tell em the truth. i'm headed to pick up my hood and i couldnt get a truck.
just double check your plates, reg, inspection stickers, drivers license, and proof of ins are good before you go. and there arent any open containers, fireworks, weapons, or illicit drugs in your car.

hell go for it, it works for the rednecks in SC see plenty of V8 S10s and such with no hoods. and they do it full time
Haha, yep, they do. There was some kid with a B16 swap in his civic that drove around with no hood forever, guess he wanted to show off to everyone :p

I'd say go for it, if you're just doing it to pick the hood up. Even if you get pulled, you might be able to explain the situation to the officer and they'll let you off.
