Many states required that the Gross Vehicle Weight be posted on the vehicle.

Boy just think of the comments if I had put an 8 track I have by the plate instead of the vhs tape.

ohhh u mean the chunky casette tapes? :lol:

ill admit im a youngin and own an 8 track player THAT WORKS and 2 cases of 8 tracks. to me they were superior to casettes as you could just hit the track button and shift songs. plus the tapes infinitely looped.

I know someone that has a working Zenith "Quad" 8-track player, with "Quad" speakers and "Quad" headphones. Sounds incredible! It might be old, but it still works great - like our trucks!

For a number of years, Wisconsin issued 'Not For Hire' tags for trucks. These were always painted the same color as the truck license plate for the given year. In Wis. the truck plates and car plates were not the same color for the same year. Maybe this holds true for your state also?

Always one bad decision away from a good time.

Thanks stew, I am thinking I will just paint it the same color as the utah 29 plate. This was a green background and black letters. If wrong I am sure I will hear about it at the first car show.
