Hey!

Does anybody know, would it hurt a 240Z to be driven without it's doors attached? I have to drive my half-disassembled '72 Z to a body shop for some welding work, but I'd rather leave the doors off if I can.

On the other hand, it is a unibody car, so I guess that could potentially damage it. What do you think?

Thanks !!!

I think it's legal to drive in CA without doors on your car. I didn't actually read that anywhere, that's just what Pops told me. Don't you think it would be fun to drive a Z without any doors installed? Sounds like good entertainment to me!

I knew someone in FLA who had a dune-Z. no doors, fenders and quarters cut out. He drove it everywhere! What a piece of crap!

The doors do not carry much of a load at all. It should be structurally safe to drive without doors installed. But,,, I would pay to have a flatbed take to the shop instead of driving around without doors - you wouldn't take your girlfriend out to dinner if she wasn't wearing her clothes. Besides, why put yourself in a potentialy unsafe position should -god forbid - you get involved in an accident. Anyway the chassis will be fine (depending on exactly what it is that is going to be welded).
