I'm pretty sure the letter of the law requires you to have all airbags intact.

20. – INSPECT AIR BAG AND AIRBAG READINESS LIGHT FOR:
  • Any defects in the air bag system noted by the air bag readiness light, or otherwise indicated; or The air bag has been deployed and has not been replaced (and is not deactivated because of a medical or other exemption and a notice is posted to indicate that it has been deactivated); or Any part of the air bag system has been removed from the vehicle; or
  • If the air bag indicator fails to light, or stays on continuously.
But again, how are they going to know (especially on an OBD 1 car) that it's been removed unless there is some dash light warning.

My opinion though is that if you intend to street drive the car it's worthwhile to keep them in. The weight savings isn't that much.
