Front Plates

CT and NY requires them (don't know about NJ). Other than not putting them on, how would you make it look better? Frame? Better mounting? Let's assume I want to be a law abiding citizen...

I would recommend you get this if you don't want to put holes in your bumper.http://www.swiftmotorsports.com/prod...3137a331538fa9

i think it is an awesome product and I plan on ordering it in 2 weeks. There is also a motorized one that sells for $150 but I am buying the manual one for $60.

I'll take my chances. My Brother is a cop and I have one of the Family PBA cards. Also, unless a cop has nothing better to do he won't stop me. AS long as I have my back plate my bro said there should be no problem. Plus, if I am speeding or doing something else bad, I would be more worried about getting a ticket for that. This is like a parking ticket if he does give me a ticket.

I told my dealer to hold off on mounting a plate bracket - and they agreed they didn't want to drill holes in the front bumper.

I have no idea what I'll do to get the car to pass state inspection though...any ideas?

I won't be keeping my front plate on but need to have it on temporarily to pass inspection since my car is coming in from out of state and is not inspected in NJ. Any realistic advice?

Thanks.

Does anyone have a picture of this installed on the Camaro? I don't think it would look too good if you centered it on the front since the nose comes to a point. It looks great on the cars with the flat fronts, but I don't see this working on the Camaro well. Anyone try?

Bought "Show 'N Go" (manual) - will post when installed

I bought the "Show 'N Go" License Plate Transport - manual version though the powered is way cool - http://www.altecproducts.com/. Purchased via Amazon from Autostuff merchant http://www.amazon.com/Show-Go-Licens...3528444&sr=8-2. Price was $49.95 but I had a promo coupon which made this sweeter...

I did email Altec sales@altecproducts.com & Greg Hickman of Altec indicated they should work OK on the Camaro - we'll see...

I will post when installed, with pictures of course.

Mine will either be in my trunk or under seat, dealer already agreed not to mount the bracket.
I'll take my chances

LOL. I saw a pic of a Camaro with front plates it takes away from the features of the car. So, like I said above will just leave them in my trunk and if I get pulled over, will just play dumb, lol.

My dealer didn't have the mounting kit so he handed me the plate and told me that they'll call when the bracket comes in. Guess I'll use that as an excuse for now if stopped. When the dealer does call, I might just say give me the kit and I'll put it on myself. It is amazing though how many cars are driving around in CT without a front plate. The majority of them seem to be pickups.

I agree. The ticket is maybe 30 bucks for most states. It is not even a moving violation and won't even show up on your Driver's Lic. It is worth paying for that ticket than having to mount front plates.

Mine will also stay in the trunk no holes in my bumper. If you get pulled over just tell them you just got the bracket. Most cops are cool with hot cars (unless you are driving crazy) then they try to through the book at you!
