    Common stuff in the street rod crowd.
    Refreshing to see it used up front for the Avanti crowd....

While parked the meter maids can't write you up & on the road the plate doesnt prevent the desparate air needed to cool an Avanti.

      Lackland AFB? flew down in '09 with the now ex-mrs.corvanti, to see her youngest graduate. i think all they do there now is training...

          Even the motorcycle crowd has some fun with these

          I have plans to hinge my front plate on the Lark, for looks and from getting bent while driving in the weeds.

            Let's face it---no matter how You attach them, front license plates look crummy on Avantis. (but the laws the law)
