Damn your car looks good..

I would go with the fifth one down, it looks most authentic! Are you required to have Flordia plates on the front? California requires it and California Highway Patrol is pretty nasty about it

They all look good.

Having a different plate on front can cause problems though, not just from a lawman. I had a california plate on front of one of my cars because I just thought it looked cool. So I took the car to the big city and parked in a parking garage and the guy started to take the number off the front. I had to stop him. It could have caused us trouble getting the car back if he went to retrieve it and the front was against a wall.

i took it off.

In FL you are only required to have a tag on the rear of the car.

Yeah, the 5th one down was my favorite too but I thought i'd get some more opinions.

Thanks
