On the front of my car, for one ;-)
Any of the PA *Mational Auto Stores* have a catalogue with a selection of major
European plates. Looks totally authentic (I know, I used to have real ones on my
cars in the past).
Approx $35 for both the plate and a handsome plastic snap-snap-snap bracket, so
that you don't have to drill the plate and/or bumper (use the existing US DOT
A piece of advice: the law does not say anything about European etc. plates,
however it does say that *the front and the rear ones should read the same*.
Therefore, as an extra insurance against an over-zealous revenue enforcer, I had
it ordered with exact same alpha-numeric combination, as the one which was given
to me by the PA DOT.
BTW, I ordered it in the form of a transit German tag, with the expiration date
of 3/94 (that's when I bought the car). Now everyone thinks that it's a Eurospec
grey market car, (especially those who had ridden in it).
Cool, I don't argue.
