    No, they are only required if the car came with them from the factory and seeing that the fiero never did, it is not required legally.

    the only requirement is the safty tests need to be up to date as of the year of the car, (1984-88). You could build a car from scratch and call it the "lovetogofast" and as long as it met cert requirments such as proper lights and safty belts and you did not build over 100 of them you could make them here and sell them here in the US, but after 101 you will need to pass every crash test and safty requirment that everyone else has to pass.

    what if you change the name and a few bits and parts?
    can you do 100 more?

    if that works, then its pretty good because anyone making
    100 literally custom cars a year is in great shape so maybe
    they could get away by doing yearly changes like 2004 to
    2005 to 2006 etc..

    hell i dont know why im even saying this ;D

    All I real know is I was looking into getting Porsche's GT3's from South America a few years ago before they were brought into the country and there could only be under 100 in the country and its hard to find out an exact number that were here and the insurance was higher, not too much but higher.
