Very cool! I had a 1964 Beetle back in the early 70's. It was a fun car and I wished I still had it.

Hey, I was PMing with someone on RL about your chair - he thinks you might have boosted it from someone else.

He kept going on and on about stolen velour.

Ha!

That velour was stolen from your corvette??? What a dastardly shyster this Frunk is. Steals velour and then upholsters a stolen chair with it?

Velour nothin' - the tuck-and-roll job in the 'Vette is purple-and-black zebra print velvet...

Ohio Front License Plates

Post by Battery Guy » Thu Jul 02, 2020 12:31 pm

Exciting stuff happening in Ohio this week. Cow tipping!! Just kidding, better -
We now can legally drive without the front license plate. Finally. Law was past in 2019 but the police have been trying since then to get it repealed. Did not take effect until this month. But good for me as three out of four cars do not have front plates.

That's nice to get. In Kansas, there are no front license plates. In Missouri, they have both. But, I run several of my hooptie fleet on Missouri dealer tags, which requires only one tag on the rear bumper. There are a few vehicles that actually look good with a front plate - my Acadia has a Mizzou plate on the front and I have a Navy wings plate on the front of my E30 (both shown in one pic - how do you like me now?!).
