Re: im convienced this isnt a real GTA..

I live in Ct. and its the law here to have 2 plates on a car but I have never done it. I will not screw the front of these cars up with an ugly bracket or plate. I have never got a ticket for it but was pulled over once and I explained to the cop that the car has no brackets and I cant get them (which is a lie cause my local pep boys sells them) and he gave me a warning.

i hear you on the ugly bracket/plate. just stay out of Washington State. The troopers there are ............ and it's not a good idea to give anyone a legal excuse to pull you over whenever they get bored or are short of their quota.

Re: im convienced this isnt a real GTA..

Has anyone thought about maybe mounting the front plate to the airdam? It's mounted. They also make a disappearing bracket that some hot rodders use who have to run front plates. Flip a switch and it pops out while they drive. Flip the switch again and it disappears under the front bumper when it's sitting. FL doesn't require it so I'm not overly worried, but I'm with everyone else and I wouldn't mount one on my car either. Also, I run a 93-97 RA1 hood on my car and a lot of folks have said it gives the car an aggressive look. Teh lines of the RA1 also flow better with the GenIII lines than the RA2 style with the big nostrils IMO.

Emma had one on her nose when I bought her. It's not there anymore and my painter was able to save her original nose. Thank goodness, because I HATED that thing!

At one time I saw someone on ebay selling a custom licence plate bracket for our cars that mounted under the front bumper. I think in the add they were refcrencing the '89 TTA specifically so maybe someone on those message boards knows more about them.
