Why Alberta plates on these pics? Where are these shots taken? I work beside the only Victory dealer in town and I don't think that's it. :?

So, are those photos from Bell's Corners, or does Wheelsport sell Victory too?

Sticking with the m20 and boosting it. Ive come this far without just saying F it and tearing the engine out of there so I might as well see how long it lasts. Compression test showed good results so hopefully some good maintenance will set it straight.

I think I saw maxbell posting on your wall.. your name is actually Freeman right?

I wonder if the po-po saw the plate and got it confused with the "Freeman on the land" movement.

http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Freeman_on_the_land

Freeman's often drive with no license, no plates, no insurance and write "freeman" on the plate area. Bad coincidence with your name lol.

Haha yeah, Im Anson Freeman, nice to meet you

It was a warning ticket for having the ontario plate in the window, as the cop is leaving I ask him if he likes my German plate so he goes and looks at it. Comes back and says he can technically give me another ticket for that. Im like wtf?

Few days later cops show up at my house for noise complain from the bmw (which is fixed now) and cop was chill. I ask him the same question and he said the other cop was bullshit, they cant ticket me for the German plate since its not registered and has no numbers, its just a name tag technically. As long as I have the ontario plate somewhere on there Im safe.

So its zip tied under my German plate now.. looks fugly.

I think there is a provision in the HTA regulating what could be mistaken for a number plate. Obviously, the german plate is intended to be mistaken for a number plate, so you could be ticketed.

We're so close to QC, just run NO plate. They don't look at you twice lol.

Hah, yeah, I don't recommend it. Obviously, its not legal. But putting your plate in the window is like a giant sign saying "HEY LOOK MY PLATE'S NOT ATTACHED" lol.
