show car = no ticket?

someone told me that there is a thing you can get and carry around in your car, so if you get pulled over for something that is caused by something done so your car looks good in a show (ie. window tint) you dont get a ticket.
Im not sure that this is true - what do yall know?

I think you've been lied to. Some states offer seasonal registration and historic plates which allow cars to abide by an adjusted set of rules but i seriously doubt there is a "get of jail free card" for show vehicles that are traveling down public roads.

Not in any of the states that I've shown in. If the car is on the road, it's held to the same safety rules and regulations as any other vehicle. Crap, I remember the days back in Colorado when a vehicle with over 500HP was considered to not be "street legal." Aaaaaahhhh...the good old days. LOL!

In MA, if you can get a certified Eye doctor to produce a document that states you have have a eye condition where you cannot be exposed to direct sunlight, then you can have all your windows (including windsheild) tinted beyond the legal limit. (just be sure to have some dark wrap around sunglasses when you get pulled over...

I doubt any state is going to make allowances against safety for a car that is customized for show purposes - if it's truly a show car then it doesn't need to be driven on the street, I'm sure that would be the opinion.

I'm guessing that the objective here is to dark-tint the windshield... I wouldn't want to drive a car at night where the windshield was substantially tinted. As for the eye-doctor thing, what would such a person do at all other times when they weren't in their car? Special glasses, I'm sure, if there is such a condition, and that's what they'd wear while driving too.

I'll be damned if I'd ever lump myself in with vision-impaired old folks in order to have a tinted set of windows!

Often states will make allowances for cars which are in original condition and were legal when they were manufactured, i.e. possibly not requiring seatbelts in pre 1965 cars for example, or not holding them to smog testing for which the cars weren't designed and built back-when.

I'm guessing that the objective here is to dark-tint the windshield... I wouldn't want to drive a car at night where the windshield was substantially tinted.

I dont want the windshield dark if I do it I would want like 50%... but thats not the point.
I dont think there is such a pass myself, but I wanted to know what yall thought. I think 'they' would just say to put your car on a trailer for the show.
personally I want them to stop bugging me about my tint and no front plate

I've thought about getting my front windows done but, im worried about the fuzz busting me everywhere. The only way i see not getting a ticket for something like that is being a cop or a firefighter. i get out of speeding tickets with my military id but, not to sure about the tint.

Exactly if it is a showcar that violates the regular requirements for being a 'normal' daily driver then you have to stick it on a trailer.

The obvious answer is the only one that will work remove your tint and get a front plate.

Being from Iowa... I would suggest to put the front plate back on. Yeah, I know, it looks soo much cooler without it, but I dont feel the need to give cops more excuses to pull me over.
