Default vacuum drop/lift license plate

as you know, i bought my car off ebay, and it didnt come with license plates. right now i have the 30 day temp paper plate in the back. the front looks so nice with just the SSE logo there, and no plate over it. i am thinking about buying/making a vacuum operated plate on a hinge. i have looked around and found an electric version for $139 at http://www.yogisinc.com/Detail.cfm/-...01/product.htm
anyone ever tried to make one of these or use one? i think i want one that slides up over the SSE from the bottom when car is moving.

Moving plates > Me.

Now that is nice, a very neat touch. Whatever you do, don't drill in the front, like 99% of our cars!!

I think I want one that retracts _fast_ whenever I blunder through one of those red-light camera intersections...

Now what about taking this a step further and having a rotary plate for our behind.... like James Bond has on his cars...

Now that would be cool
(not that hiding the front plate wouldn't be)
