Check out these license plate frames, especially Model EX-33:

Pretty cool.

What I did was lower my plate, so the top holes in the plate are mounted to the lower mounting bolts. It works as a partial grill block. It is also angled back.

I have seen one plate mounting that flips up when the car is cruising at highway speed, but pops back down when the car is stopped. I can't imagine it would be be legal. But it would be interesting to see the cops face when they pull you over for not having a front plate, but then see you have a front plate...
