Nope, it's not just you. It definitely leans down on the right.

Maybe, its the frame, because it tilts up to the right. Anyway, it's not straight. I'm not OCD about a lot, but not level is one of my triggers.

It's the artist in me. Hang it straight, dammit!

So your glossing over the month and year stickers begin cocked eyed to start with as well.

C, I got it the first try, also. Don't ever post anything on this site unless you want someone to fault you for something. Most of the people on here graduated with honors from the University of Critics.

Many people cannot easily understand specialty plates. I have a Jetstream Blue C6, and my plate is "REDWHTN", and people go, "huh?"
Plus, I have my 25th Infantry decal, 101st Airborne decal, and CIB decal, and they still say, "huh?"

You don't have to live in CA...It looks like the plate is on a tilt a bit.

That is why it is getting more difficult for me to take part in discussions.

I don't know why people get a kick out of making smart a-- comments with the intent of embarrassing rather than just keeping their mouth shut. Too many members think they are comedians.

A better idea would be to send a pm if they couldn't resist letting the op know the frame and plate is out of level.

I was hoping to go for a drive this weekend, but now I feel pressured into to addressing this.
left me have a sierra Nevada PA first and think about it.
Just touch up the screws with black...they will be invisible.

And, I would not take my car through East L.A., if you are ever so inclined....too many interpretations that might get you into trouble...

Lastly, if you get tired of 'splainin to the unwashed many about USA1, just tell them it stands for "United Emirates States of Arabia", and give them a hostile look. They will never bother you again...though, the FBI might want to speak with you.

Hope you understand this is all in fun, at least for me. Nothing like car guys givin' car guys crap.

Hey, Phil, good to hear from you. I know you don't post much, but still like to stay in touch. Still waiting on you coming to Vegas. Missed you last time, I think.

Hope all is well in EC.

My daughter regrets her decision to move to Cave Creek. She wishes she had moved to Vegas. She is listing her house and will move there after it sells.

After she resettles, I'll be visiting her in Vegas. I saved your phone number.

I would have been surprised if I hadnít gotten the responses I did. But I thought it was going to be more about the content, not so much on its appearance. Glad Iím not showing it in a concourse show. Itís good to know though if I were, iíll Know who to check with first. All good!

Some times it's not even humorous. Some people here are just plain rude. You're absolutely right. If I say something wrong or something you disagree with tell me. Just don't be rude about it. I don't take that at home or at work and I shouldn't have to take on some forum I'm on for pleasure. We probably need a thread on just that. Somebody will probably comment here that this is the wrong place for this post. But that's ok I've alredy been told that once this week and he was rude too.
