It's almost uncanny. The definition around the front is particularly good.

A minor nitpick: Mississippi doesn't issue front plates.

Thought it was real from the thumbnail.

I also grit my teeth whenever Hollywood/TV shows don't do their homework and assume PA issues front plates as well....

Except for the now canceled show "Cold Case" that, in a flashback to 1986, not only got the lack of front plate correct on the car, but also got the correct STYLE for that year, the "You've got a friend" plate that was issued for only a few short years in the late 80's before it switched to the "keystone state" style that lasted until 00', when the state got the belated bright idea to put their .gov website URL on the plates..... ugh... by that point, even the family DOG had figured out the internet, it doesn't make you look progressive!!! That was also back when there existed only one kind of plate, not 90 permutations on "special cause" plates, at least they've standardized the colors on those to match the rest, one of the earliest of THOSE was the "Flagship Niagra" plate, white on tan, YOU TRY READING THAT!!!!

I was once watching a show about some Rich guy in Newport in the 1910s, he was driving a 1920s Model T

Mysteries At The Museum seems to do that a lot, one story took place in the 40s, I believe and the car was a 1958? Chevy with a Heartbeat Of America plate on the front

#3, California just started issuing plates with the DMV website URL on them below the plate number, in an awful horizontally stretched font that not only is hard to read, but really ugly.

#2, I could always swap it to a different state, or maybe make an Ole Miss plate... :P
The front plate almost didn't make it on, it was the last piece I attached and did it mainly to hide the seam in the front bumper.

#4, I was just watching a clip from Mysteries At The Museum about the disappearance of Flight 19 and when the host is talking about TBM Avengers running out of fuel over the Atlantic Ocean the footage is of a Japanese Mitsubishi G4M Betty bomber getting shot at over the Pacific. Granted, I don't expect them to have rustled up five Avengers in flying condition to film a reenactment, and they -did- managed to find two short period clips of actual Avengers in flight later in the segment. But the completely unrelated aircraft and situation was like "....what?"

#4, I remember on an episode of Unsolved Mysteries a while back, a scene at a funeral taking place in the early 1960s had late-'70s Buick Electra parked very conspicuously nearby.

#7, ahahaha was it the Robert Stack version or the Dipshit Farina series?

#8, The only version as far as I'm concerned, with Captain Rex Kramer himself, though I the same story may have been repackaged in the Farina version.

Getting back around to "Cold Case", I'm amazed at how RIGHT they got their cars, since the show is about unsolved homicides and frequently jumps between the present and past. And they don't just get the stereotypical cars either. An episode set in 1977 did feature a 2nd Gen Camaro as the murderer's car, but has also featured appearances by A Dodge Demon, a Plymouth Volare, a DMC-12, a VW Sirocco and even the cars parked along the street in establishing shots are period-correct. Also, one episode featured the unsolved murder of a Philadelphia Police officer in 1968, the establishing shot shows him dead in his squad car, that's painted red. At first, I thought it was a lazy mistake, the production crew using some old fire chief's Plymouth and figuring "good enough" Turns out, Philly cop cars WERE red in the 60's.... big bonus points all around.

#10, I was impressed by a segment on Golf Channel the other night which featured a reenactment of a newspaper editor named Reg Murphy who was kidnapped in 1974. They actually went to the trouble of sourcing a 1971 Ford LTD sedan in good enough condition to represent a 3-year old car for a sequence that only consisted of a few shots of the car pulling up, some in-car driving footage and showing the guy stuffed in the trunk. He claimed to have kept his cool while locked in the trunk for 49 hours by mentally visualizing a round he played at Augusta National.

#10, Red police cars? Trippy. Kind of like the bright yellow police cars they used in Toronto until 1986: http://en.academic.ru/pictures/enwi...toPoliceCar.jpg

#12, Yep, red http://media-cache-ec3.pinimg.com/5...b43600a4894.jpg and that's the EXACT model they used in the show too.

An episode set in 1974 further got the right blue-green color they were using then, and a 1990 episode had bread-box Caprices in the correct white with yellow/blue stripes. They REALLY checked their facts.

I guess taxis weren't yellow at the time in Toronto, that'd be confusing....

In case anyone wants their own.
I recommend using card stock and making some additional vertical bracing between the wheels so they don't collapse inward under the car's weight.
