Front plate States...GRRRRR

This is a discussion on Front plate States...GRRRRR within the Camaro / SS forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; I live in Chicago Illinois, a state that requires front plates. It really bothers me as there's nothing that ruins ...

    Thumbs down Front plate States...GRRRRR

    I live in Chicago Illinois, a state that requires front plates. It really bothers me as there's nothing that ruins the look of a car like a front plate and bracket. Rant off.

    Thank God we don't have that here. Previous owner had a Kiss My SS tag on the front, and while I chuckled at it, I quickly removed it after purchase, along with the skull/bone border, the Coca-Cola stickers on the windows (she worked for Coke), the angel ornament from the mirror, and some anime cartoon sticker I assume her kid stuck to the back hatch.

    Sworn - there is an electronic license plate that hides itself and then comes down with the flip of a switch.

    Ive seen threads on here for it before.

    I just got pulled over again 2 months ago. 5 times pulled over for this haha and my last 2 times i had to show the officer it was there, just had it mounted on my lower air dam. Now it is behind my black billet grille. It is kinda hidden but doesnt cover any of my front end up

    I actually just ordered the SLP front plate bracket, at least it will look a litttle better.

    Previous owner had a Kiss My SS tag on the front, and while I chuckled at it, I quickly removed it after purchase, along with the skull/bone border, the Coca-Cola stickers on the windows (she worked for Coke), the angel ornament from the mirror, and some anime cartoon sticker I assume her kid stuck to the back hatch
    LOL! Nice!

    i had to show the officer it was there, just had it mounted on my lower air dam.
    Chicago Municipal Code dictates that it must be mounted in a certain way. I had it on the lower air damn my old T/A and got dinged for it......

    My t/a looked out of place with the gap and front plate. I stuck the bird cover back on and had a vinyl phoenix colored as the American flag. Not stopped once after that mod. Would be downright unpatriotic

    $55 ticket now in Cali for no front plate. And that's even if your car is parked they can ticket u.

    question for anyone that knows? I know why they want us to have front plates but why are Harley's ok to roll with out them???

    Here's a crappy cell phone pic of the SLP plate bracket installed. Nothing against SLP, but F-Body's just don't look good with front plates......
