That's funny, esp if it was like that and you just never noticed.

I hate front plates. The main reason I chose my car over a few others on the lot at the time was because the first owner never put on a front plate. Of course after I get done signing all the paperwork the finance guys comes out w/ a screw driver and a paper plate saying he has to install it by law (CA). I told him that tech since I had just finished signing the paperwork the car was mine and I didn't want him touching it. Yes, I know it's illegal in CA but I've had 3 cars all without plates, been stopped many times for speeding, and never got a ticket for it... and now I probably will because I'm writing this, lol.

As I've mentioned before, my co-worker has mentioned this but not sure if it's still applicable.

Federal law supersede state law. It saids if the foreign car did not come with built-in factory license plate mounts, it is not required. This would differ with American cars because they are typically have built-in ones. At the time, when he had his Ford sedan, police pulled him him over and asked about his front plate because he did not put it on but had it stored inside his glove compartment along with the screws. The officer hold him to put it on because it had a built-in mount so he did (officer gave him a screw driver), and no ticket was issued. When he gotten his BMW, no front plate, and had no problems because of no built-in mount.

For super cars, not required at all for the fronts.

Ya I'm sure no cop will stop anyone just for not having a front plate. Years ago I got nailed at a speed trap, and the cop was like, no front plate huh, lemme tag on this extra fine. Have a nice day.

Yes, that's true. It's more like a secondary offense, so they have to pull you something over that it's a primary offense.

Just need to watch your speed. A few friends I know, have the Escort RedLine so they can detect police presence a good distance away.
