Well Sean_f got it. Like I said its a California thang.

Its no big deal. I just thought I'd wake people up and get some reactions, like yours. Its no big secret but I'll wait a for a few more responses before I let ya know what it means. Of course someone else may tell first. Like I said its no big deal

Okay G1967T knows the answer cause his isn't quite a real Mustang. Its a great GT still though.
Out here in powerless California black license plates were issued to cars of the 60's and I'm not sure when they changed to blue but the early Mustangs had black plates. Since the plates stay with the car when sold it is a rare find to buy a Vintage Mustang with black plates. Some that have been retitled or come from out of state get the color plate of that era, blue, white, etc....white versions now. So if ya see a lil'ol Tang with black plates ya gottsa know someone likes his horsy....

And I'm from Chicago but have lived in Californicate for the last 16 years. Jus' doknow war that billy accent coms frum.

okay enough of the levity lets get back to serious problems that have serious social implications. Is Armor-All really bad for your plastics?

You learned to read on Phonics, didn't you? Maybe Ebonics?

BTW, you can't write with Phonics, the English language isn't phoenetic.

And no, it's NOT a California thing to speak incoherently.

Oh, and even the New Englanders know what a California black plate is. We've had many discussions on the subject. Try searching on the old forum for more detail.

Lets see now. What the hay, is that correct? I can understand why you wouldn't want to be associated with that other LA. Here we refer to it as LALA-land. Check out my other post about the black plate explanation.

Just thought we needed a little laugh today.

Hey I noticed on your sig that you have TTDs and 225/60s. do you have any rubbing of the inner fender? Suspension problems? My 67 is still stock wheels & tires (sizes) but I want to get something bigger.

I lowered the upper control arm a'la Shelby, and rolled my fender lips. No rubbing problems. I just put on 4 1/2 leaf leaf springs with reverse eye bushings, and after driving 2 wks, have rubbed once.

Gee some people get all flustered over a simple comment. BLACK PLATES ISSUED NEW TO NEW MUSTANGS OF THE PERIOD, ie. 60's VINTAGE MUSTANGS. Its a California thing (thang must have been too confusing) because most California drivers know that black plates are becoming rare site on the streets and people from other states wouldn't get the inside (California) statement.
Lighten up it was a meant as a fun piece.
