      “And others”? Now I know how the professor and Mary Ann felt when they heard the song on season 1!



      Oh? What do you think you know about wheel spacing? Hmmmmm? :P

      Quite.

      A HumberSuper Snipe would be hard. A Ford Tudor? Cake.

      It’s also nicknamed “shoebox”. Yes, some people call ‘55-‘57 Chevys a shoebox, but this was first.

      Yeah, they do. They’re usually in a bag in the trunk and they’re installed during a PDI. If the dealership isn’t in a front plate state they may discard them, which is fine, but they came with them. ...

      No, we are talking about reasons that dealers wouldn’t even consider going out and buying a license plate holder when every car comes with one that already meets any requirements. The fact that it...

      You’re completely missing the point that most people literally don’t give it a second thought. They don’t care. At all. It is of no concern. They have a car as an appliance only. They don’t notice...

      I’ve had two convertibles and both were red. Does that count? :)


      Like most here I too am a firm believer in the multi-car solution. My daily needs an upgrade, but that can wait as we recently...

      No, it isn’t “damage”. It’s an installation on a car that they own and nothing they’re trying to hide. It’s exactly the same as a dealer installed spoiler that requires holes (yes, that used to be a...

      Yes. That was their right.



      No, they aren’t damaging it. They installed the factory front plate mount that came with the car during the PDI. Don’t like it? Don’t buy it.

      Why is this hard to...

      You disgust me.

      In a good way, of course. :laugh: :beer:




      Fixed. :)

      See, the point is that it wasn’t yet the customer’s car. It was for sale on the lot and they bought it with the plate already on it. There is no recourse, the dealer did nothing illegal or even...

      Wow.

      Firstly, there's literally no "expense of the customer". Secondly it isn't "taking advantage of the customer" and thirdly there's nothing to "take responsibility for".

      Had this been a...

      Whether it should be or shouldn't be isn't the issue. I agree it shouldn't be, but it is. This was not a special order (as far as I know) so indeed it was the dealership's car until sold to a...

      All of this plus the fact that it's likely that the bracket - and the rivets - came with the car from Ford and it was put on as a matter of course during the PDI. It's how it's done.


      Plugs and...

      That was standard operating procedure for many, many years. Most of those cars have rusted away decades ago, so you don't see them much any more, but they were almost ubiquitous with dealerships.

      I'll say it again. Woo-hoo!



      And again. Woo-hoo!


      Do you think the value of the car in California went up as much as what you had to spend? Not that one should be more than the other, I'm...

      That's what I figured. As I said, it's one thing if you're putting in an LS or some other engine that wasn't designed to go there, but I wouldn't think there'd be much mocking up on a fairly stock...

      I don't think it will have much in the way of automation, that's the land of show car fluff at this point. (I'm sure it will have some automation, but not enough to use without a license.) :beer:

      So they should have designed and built an overly expensive van that wouldn't have sold and a Bulli that would've made headlines for being "dangerous" after the new test came out.

      Got it.
