street legal buggy in mississippi?

anybody know what it takes to make a buggy (home-built car) street legal in mississippi?
if it comes to it i'd just register it in arizona and transfer it to mis.

EDIT: i contacted some family in MISS. and they asked a MHP officer and he said as long as we have:
1.a windshield
2. a horn (preferably a dixie horn )
3. safety stuff (those are his words )
4. hi/lo beams, turn signals, tail lights, brake lights.
EDIT: 5. brakes on all 4 wheels that must stop the vehicle within 30 feet at 20 mph, a secondary, mechanical parking brake is also required.
thanks corey

after you get/install all of the above equipment you take it to the local MHP inspection station, they inspect it, and if you pass you can go register it for the street.

we (dad and i) are trying to do a street legal woods buggy, 4wd, narrow width, good ground clearance, so we're gonna get a cheap buggy out here and eventually make it 4wd, and possibly drop in a subaru engine.

i do like the manx's though,if we were going for a DD, beach cruiser i'd definantly go with the manx.
