August 7, 2006I know the best looking trucks come from CA. I also know that it is mandatory to have a front license plate mounted on your rides. I'm just curious, what do you guys prefer on the 53-56 trucks, and your honest opinion of what you think looks better overall. A license plate on the front? or no license plate? I've seen both but undecided?

August 7, 2006No plate, no plate, no plate. How about all those vets with no plates.
August 7, 2006my front stainless bumper has no place for a plate
August 7, 2006I don't have the front plate mounted but its under my seat with mounting bolts just in case I get pulled over. Then I make up some lame excuse that I was working on the front and forgot to put it back on and mount it for the PD and hope I don't get written up it is the law.
August 8, 2006I'm like Jeff....just carry it with you
August 8, 2006With one exception, I do not mount a license plate on any of my vehicles. When it comes to Stars and Stripes, I make an exception, because I like what the plate says and because I paid this tax crazy, money grabbin' state extra dinero for it, I'm darn sure gonna get my moneys worth.
Until that time.
Dan...and the music played on.
August 8, 2006I am a "NO PLATE VOTE" kinda guy. Hey Ed, don't you work for !!!!!! ? Yep, you should know better than to ask us that question!!!! Hum, as I recall at Western Nats, I don't think you care for it on the front either do ya? Not many of our trucker friends get themselves into situations where they get noticed for doing something fun, I mean unsafeor illegal, (and get caught) and therefor don't usually get picked on by the PD for the plate violation. Oh wait a minute, didn't E O get a speedometer check lately? TOOOOOO FUNNY!
Ed, you need to get that tranny done so you can join in on the fun up the road from you in Santa Maria. What is the latest on it anyway?
I know you can pull this off and I am sure we will all be checkin out the new rear disc's and tranny in about 10 days.
August 8, 2006Interesting! Everyone is for a no plate on the front. Since I had the personal plate made like Music Man, I was thinking about mounting it but am partial to no plate myself.
UBS- I appreciate you putting !!!!! in there. LOL... As for an update on the transmission. It's going in the tranny shop on Friday. If I'm lucky, they have it done by Monday if I rebuild it, or Thursday if I want the AOD tranny installed. Not sure which way I'm going yet. The disc's won't be here in time and installed by the North South Run. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Meantime, I'm leaving my front plate off and taking my chances with the friendly police officers.
August 8, 2006Just carry the bolts and plate with you. This works, "it fell off and I don't have a wrench with me".
August 8, 2006I'm with you guys...No Plate. I just keep mine on because it goes with the truck. "It's all Beat up"
August 8, 2006Shame - shame - shame on you guys ----just a looken for trouble with no front plate !!!
I vote to keep it on -- it covers the bumper holes -- and greets Mr. Officer !! HELLO !!!
