2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Oooooooh Burn!

September 27, 2010


I went out my lady Friday and I thought the Raptor might not be able to fit in a parking garage, so it sat parked out in front of my house all night. When I hopped into the truck Saturday morning, right on the windshield was a ticket.

A few expletives later, I stood out on the rail to grab said violation from under the wiper. Violation of VC 5200 Display of Plates, aka - no front plate. If I were a cartoon, steam would have been coming out of my ears right then. Ooooooooh I just wanted to crush and rip the ticket up right there. A ticket in front of my own house! That just didn't feel right to me.

But I thought about it for a minute. There can be a debate for a lot of vehicles and whether the front plate on the bumper just kills the looks. Would you put a plate on the front of the Raptor? Would you run the risk of tickets to preserve the looks?
