I have never used this, but this may work if you want to stay legal and not block air flow. I don't put my plate up front.

If that’s the one that goes in your tow hook, I tried two, maybe even three of those, and came to the conclusion my tow hook is stripped. I couldn’t get none of them to screw in for nothing! It kept stripping the threads of the bar I was trying to screw in. Luckily amazon is good about returns. There wasn’t a lot of choices of those to buy. If I remember correctly, iJDMToy was the only one I could find that sold them for our cars

Yup!

Finished everything up yesterday and pulled Lucille out and ready to cruise today. I think it’s been a couple of months up on stands, but well worth it and I’m super stoked about the splitter, spoiler and new emblems.
Looks great!

Yeah, I zipped my plate in corner of the passenger side of the lower grille until I got the tow hook mount. Unfortunately, VA requires a front plate. But the mount let me put this cover on it, at least.

Also in Texas. I refuse to run the front plate just as I have on certain other cars based on appearance. Over the years (since the '70s) I have only been pulled over about it twice. OTOH, my wife ('73 Cutlass) and kids (Mini and the VUE Redline) had many more troubles with this.
It is still the law, it is sometimes enforced and a local cop tells me that at least locally is not treated as 'primary offense' meaning that the city won't pull you over SOLELY on that basis... but the DPS doesn't agree AFAIK.
The bills brought forth to kill the two-plate law have been numerous but never prevail. scroll through the linked list if you are curious to see recent efforts.

A really good list of Texas laws proposed in the State Legislature in 2021 including the pass/fail of each.

I got pulled over in a suburban city for no front plate on my Tbss.

Fucking asshole flipped a u turn on a divided blvd. I saw him look at me when we passed.

I did nothing wrong. Asked why he pulled me over?

He said I have no front plate.

I should have said you have no frontal lobe, but do people harass you for it?

I was shocked.

Anyway, $25 fine. I think I had to add the plate but then removed it.

I’m stubborn.

Ok ok done! I still wanna know why the two license plate mounts stripped on me both times. That seems like the obvious choice, but two times and two strips tells me something is F’d up in there and it ain’t worth trying again. For the record, the second one I lubed up before I inserted it and the fucker still stripped on me. Ugh

Just always be careful not to speed where you know cops frequently setup shop, and if you get pulled over knowing you weren't speeding, just be calm and respectful, and tell him you just can't bring yourself to molest such a beautiful car.

Stopped at my usual station, filled up and now have a No Crank condition.

Hey, at least it’s Friday, it’s not raining, and only two miles from the house (and shop)
As soon as my daughter gets here, things should start looking up

Got it home, on the lift shortly.
DIC was reading 12.5V before jumping, so….
Either there is something loose… cable, ground, signal wire OR starter bolts, or the safety (clutch) switch is going bad OR the recent reman starter is flaking.

I recently replaced the batt and starter preemptively so that I or my daughter would NOT have this issue.

I would say either get a steel bolt and WD40 at least, or a thread chaser and run it in there a bunch. Unless someome before goofed it up. Maybe you could shine a light in there and see.
