This may be the triumph of optimism over reality but 6997 is getting closer to getting back on the road.
In the last 35 years the car has never had a front number plate , but it has been in cold storage for the last 30 of these . Things have tightened up just a little around the neighborhood these 30 years.
At one point in that not so recent past you could just paint the number on a piece of tin and nail it to the back. Not so now with the automatic number plate recognition scanning in our states finest patrol cars.
I have gone through the local regulations , and short of chopping two wheels off the car it must have a front number plate . The penalties are pretty severe if you are caught without one so its another thing to address up front. In addition the automatic speed cameras scan for the missing front plate and then photograph the car from behind if its not found. Instant fine.
I have posed the plate in all possible locations and all look equally awful.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make mounting the front plates look less of an abomination? Any ideas on fixtures , ( Or rotating plates, retractable or rotating mounts ....ohhh, sorry none of that ) fixing points etc would be appreciated.
