I didn't have a rear bumper in my car for a while, and I got stopped by the cops (Illinois). They decided not to give me a ticket, but I had to promise to get it fixed right away.
I took it to the theatrical scene shop I was working in at the time, and some buddies and I bolted a big old piece of 4x10 to the back and painted it the color of the car. Later, one of my friends painted "WOOD?" in bright orange caution paint on it. That car was a local legend for a while.
