Update on PA title and inspection
I did some online research and found a helpful "enhanced inspection station" in West Chester PA (Chris Radhill Auto - very knowledgeable). It appears that as long as the cooling fan is covered with something to safeguard fingers, you can have the engine exposed. So fenders, windshield and other bits will be added to get me street legal. An 06 Crown Victoria front suspension and a drivetrain from a 77 Dodge Sportsman Van are now being combined with 120 feet of 2" tube. We will see how hard it actually is to title this. I will keep the forum posted.
