    Re: Just Got a V!!

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I will most definitely be ditching that stupid dealer logo and it's actually a law in Iowa that you have to have a front and rear license plate. Is there anyway I can mount a plate on the front without drilling into my bumper?

    It's a law in Ohio too...I just chose to ignore that law...and havent hand any troubles yet. I did that on another car I used to have. Got two tickets from the same cop $35 is a fair price for a better looking car.

    I've been pulled over for no plate on the front by a town cop here but I wasn't ticketed. I wonder what the ticket costs in Iowa.

    Re: Just Got a V!!

    A few weeks back I was heading through a tollbooth on I-84 in MA. A buddy and mine were "rocking out" to Celine Dion and I was overacting with this big open arms gesture as we went through the booth. Well, the state trooper didn't like my dance moves so he pulled me over. He mentioned my lack of front plate and dark tint. He let the tint go as his meter said 32%(MA limit is 35%) and he let me alone with the plate as I had it inside the car. I think he wanted to bust my chops but I was too nice to him...

    I think he just wanted to see your car up close. I was pulled over twice when I had the V, and never even got a written warning. Both cops gave me their little "slow it down "speech, and then "So, is that the one with the Corvette engine?" And we bs'd for 5 minutes about cars

    Same here, both times it was relatively close to my house and by officers that had already seen my car several times in parking lots since I park a mile away where they generally sit during down time ( I realized this at a later date when I saw them again). No real reason to pull me over other than 'demonstration of speed' from 0 to the speed limit once and an oddly spirited turn on the other... Another time I wasnt pulled over but still involved with the law, and the conversation eventually led back to the V's specs.


    The V is nearly invisible to the casual radar hunter, especially when among other cars ... Unless, if course, you're doing 140 with a stripper riding shotgun.
