Waiting Patiently
Camera: iPhone Xs Photo Location: Driveway 
Posted By: Sailor, 09-16-2020, 06:52 AM

On Monday, while we got our annual debugging by our Termitrol guy, my wife and I stayed outside with masks in place. My cars were outside as well, in order to provide access to the garage's attic. I'm not very good at just standing around, so I pulled out my iPhone and shot some pics simply for something to do. One of the shots, a photo of my car parked next to our magnolia, I actually like - so I'm posting it here . . . . . simply for something to do.

The quality of photos from my iPhone continues to impresse me, and mine is not the latest and greatest. As they say: the best camera in the world is the one you have with you.

Beyond me, as well, Mike, but Texas is certainly not alone - I think something like 30 other states require front plates.

I've lived in Illinois, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Ohio, Michigan and Texas, and all but Michigan required front plates when I lived in these places. After moving to Texas (from Michigan), I flaunted the law () for years with my sport cars and sports sedans, but I was constantly stopped in our rather small town. Eventually, I had to go see the judge, who was sympathetic to my plight and charged me only 10 bucks court costs and no fine. By then I was too old and cranky to put up with the trouble, so both my cars wear front plates. Life's way too short to worry about it at my age.

You are right Jer, that I-Phone takes a pretty fine photo. The car looks great and I really like the color.

Iím blessed here in Fl.
This state is so cheap, we only get one. I donít think a front plate holder was thought of for many chariots.

Thanks, Todd. I've owned the 911 for well over four years - the longest I've kept a car in some time. I'm usually a "love 'em and leave 'em" sort of car guy, but I'm not feeling much of an urge to let this one go yet.
