      How are you getting away with the single plate?
      I drove for 2 days without the front plate and got pulled over!

      I can't answer that, but I will say that I got pulled over for 15mph over and instead of writing me a speeding ticket he wrote me a front plate ticket. So I guess I've been really lucky considering I've been running that way for three years.

      Funny thing is people who cover their plates at all... you kinda drive around in public on the daily with camera's everywhere so I am sure people see your plate lots.

      And yeah front plates gotta suck... Yeaa Alberta!!

      PS see you lost your tow hook once... time to paint that lower valence! I recommend a nice satin black... offsets the Lava nicely.

      Ever heard the story about the guy who got cut off in traffic then tracked down the other guys number from his plates and then proceeded to get the guy in a fight with a third man that was selling his truck?

      murica??

      That is nuts... but guess proves my point kinda - he got his license plate number just from driving behind him.

      But can't say I have heard that story.

      Strange, I was pulled over because I didn't have the front plate, no ticket but I was warned to get the plate mounted!

      We had no front plate on our corvette in Illinois for 5 years and the month we went to move we got pulled and the cop wrote us a warning. No front plates in TN, though

      Frozen in the snow up in the blue ridge, approx. 3 yrs. ago

      Partially unfrozen, after freeing it we let it sit in a full sun lot for about 6 hours before attempting to drive it any farther, and I always loved the icicle look.

      Once we got her to the new home in TN

      A dirty pic after playing around on some gravel roads

      And, Finally, the recent pic, at one of the overlooks on the Blue Ridge Parkway where I just couldn't resist pulling over and snapping a few quick shots.
