debating between custom plate:
"GEEK"
and
"ITNAVA"
the latter so people can read it in their rear view mirrors and get out of the way (got this idea from 1970's Porsche Carreras).

ITNAVA would not work for me, I have not ran a front plate on any of my Avanti's in over 40's years.:)

Stay out of Arlington, Va. I've gotten two $40 tickets there for that very offense.

They'll gitcha out here for it, too. (They think they'll miss some money from their damn red light cameras.)

We have red light cameras here in Alberta, and Alberta doesn't even issue front plates anymore. The cameras simply photograph your rear plate.

Well that's GOOD Gord! [:0] Then you can claim you were not driving, if they don't get your face! [^]

I hate front plates so much that I refuse to live in a state that uses them:D.

Growing up, Michigan had front and rear plates until 1981. I grew accustomed to them. On older cars were there was a definite indentation for a front plate, I kind of think the car looks naked with something. I plan on running YOM plates on my car and I'm trying to find the state issued booster plate for the state of Florida. It doesn't have any numbers, but it has the sun coming up over the horizon, with Florida in large letters over the top, and the state slogan (SUNSHINE STATE) along the bottom. It's in the same colors as the rear plate (blue over orange).

Any car that looks good with a front license plate...looks BETTER without one [^]

In Ohio they don't care who is driving the car. The owner gets the ticket and they pay, And I mean they pay. It is the owners problem on who was driving.

You got that right, Dick. Ohio has had two plates every year since WWII except '53. I found a YOM plate with my initials on it, nothing at all on the front, since it's a 53. I lucked out.
