And no provision for the front plate that some states require.

That would not need a license plate at all. Not if it is that ugly. Everyone would recognize the only one they'd be able to sell.

I was thinking a Contour, looks a little small for a Taurus, but that's just me.

Just A Car Guy: Bonneville Speed Week, home of the streamliner... Kim asked me about this last week when I ran it as a banner, and I found out that it's the "Salt Shark" of Tom Flattery, ran 288 mph this year

I saw the banner. It was a side view and I didn't realize it's a reverse tricycle.

That's made both Reddit and Fark in the last few days. I thought I posted the Reddit link here, maybe not. The Fark thread doesn't deteriorate into a duck tape/duct tape battle, it starts there.
