i got an email from mid America motor works and i would like to spread the news

Dear Corvette Friends,

Join Mid America Motorworks in supporting Illinois legislation to allow Corvettes to display a rear license plate only! This is our opportunity to make our voices heard. Contact your State Representatives and State Senators today! Request their "YES" vote on allowing Corvette owners to legally display a single license plate on the rear of their vehicle.

We are providing the links below so you can conveniently reach your state elected officials immediately.

*Refer to House Bill #1053

It's law here that you have to run a front plate. I don't bother they have only ever seen the back anyways. 'Cept for that MP kid "Know why I pulled you over SSgt?" "I was doing 62? :D " ":laughing: I had to break 75 to keep you in sight and you spun the rears 3 times." "Oh got allitle carried away."
I showed him under the hood too.

BUT I hope you all the best over there. IMO front plates are worthless for anything. I'd like to know the reason behind "making" people run front plates.

I have a ? I live in Wisconsin and work in Illinois. Wis. has to run a front plate and so does Illinois. Can I be ticketed in Illinois for not having a front plate?

Does this law allow only corvettes to display 1 plate or all cars? I couldnt find the text of the bill.

Tickets for not having a front plate have been factored into the expense of owning my corvette. It would be nice to not worry about that.

It seems very odd to only include corvettes into the law. Other than googling the resolution number does anyone have the ability to find the actual text? Im curious.

I doubt that they would pass any law specific to a particular car model, i.e. Corvette. It would be nice to see all states get rid of the front plate. Even on non-Vettes, I think the front plate is useless.

I used to live in Illinois and did not run a front plate on my vette the 6 months I owned it up there. It was mostly during the winter and garaged, so no problems.

Love living in Florida, no front plate and window tint is legal! :partyon:
