what is the 411 on front license plates in Virginia. i would hate to alter my cobra just to put a plate on it. if you are in Va do you have a front plate on your car?
whats the penalty for not having a plate?

It shouldn't need a front plate as I believe the law reads now that your car would have to meet the requirements of the year and model that it replicates. I understand that if the original car did not have a specific mounting for a front plate then you wouldn't need one. I don't have one on my car and have never been asked about it (legally). Others may add their thoughts but I think I am right.

Many moons ago I had a front license plate holder like this: http://www.shellvalley.com/index.cf...t_id=108/category_id=162/mode=prod/prd108.htm

It had two holes properly spaced and was clamped by the two screws that mount the front turn signal lens. I gave it to someone when I moved south...

There's also this one: https://www.finishlineaccessories.com/p-19-license-plate-bracket-front.aspx

Don't know anything about it.

Oh, that's right! I was a denizen of DC then - their rules may or may not be the same?
