No more front license plates for Wyoming hot rods, classics, and customs

A bill that has passed the Wyoming Legislature would exclude owners of classic and custom cars from having to put a license plate on the front of their vehicles.

Proponents of the measure include Steve Schaffer, owner of a baby blue 1957 Chevy Bel Air. Schaffer says he rebuilt the car from the ground up and stuck a late-model Corvette engine in it.

When he was done, the old Chevy didn't have a place for a license plate on the front of the car. Schaffer says he had to drill holes in the front bumper so he could install a license plate.

The bill is headed to Gov. Dave Freudenthal after clearing the House on Friday.
