No matter how you cut it, a front plate on a 3rd Gen is just ugly, Camaro's have a better setup for sure, but when it comes to the TA's & Firebirds...simply aweful...the plate brackets are just big square and ugly.
Now keep in mind that I purchased the Shark~ new and guess what...it never had a front plate or bracket. Here's an interesting thought, out of all the years, I have never been stopped for lack of a front plate. However, I did get stopped for having a cover over my back plate, and it was not dark...go-figure!
Anyhow, great group!
