Back in the late eighties or early nineties, you couldn't have a "cool" car without replacing your front plate with a graphic or logo plate. After my 6th or 7th time "playing dumb" with the local and Oregon State Police, I finally got the ticket I deserved. I have since ran with the front plate properly mounted.
To be honest though...I am pretty sure the ONLY reason they ever stopped me was because I was a young fuzzy lipped punk driving a bright red hot rod (66 Malibu...among others).
