Congratulations! I hope it's a great experience for you.

Ummm....make that the front foot well, not wheel well.
I agree with your son...messes up the lines of the car and I'll be darned if we're going to start drilling holes in the front bumper. Can honestly say, for as many years we have NOT put when on...neither one of us has ever been pulled over for it. Guess I haven't reached "public enemy #1 status" yet!
Like I said...we do carry the front plate inside the car...and I would just throw it up on the dash should I be stopped. Have a very good friend who is a police officer and She tells me not to worry too much about it. And I don't.

Hahaha. I had a number of cars that I never put the front plate on and never had an issue. My roommate, however, could get a ticket for no front plate while the car was in the driveway!

Off topic, but I have lived in 4 states. None required a front license plate.
Again, for people reading these threads, just about any regulation regarding vehicles will vary from state to state.

I am also thinking of purchasing a car out of my home state which is now IN. I have no idea why but cars in IN are way over priced. Its almost comical. I asked my friend how she did it cuz she lives in AL and bought a new car in MI. She said that if the states are cooperative or something like that, then each state shares the sales tax. That is how her deal worked. When I contacted IN, they said that I have to show proof I paid sales tax where I bought the vehicle. So lets say I bought a car in IL and paid 7%, which is also the sales tax in IN, then I'm good. I just have to pay for registration. But if I pay less than 7% then I have to pay the additional 1% when I register. If I pay more than 7% then the state of IN will refund the difference. Seems kind of wacky. So I am wondering if its worth the hassle but I just can't see over paying 5-6k more for a car in IN when I know I can get a better deal if I cross the border.

I wonder what would happen if I buy a car in Massachusetts while living in a state with no sales tax where I would register my car (New Hampshire)

You'd pay whatever fees NH requires when you register a new car, no matter where you purchased it from.
