  4. it's a bike thing. Some riders bent it up to avoid detection... on a car it's more of a cultural quote or statement.

  6. I think it's a Japanese thing, started by the Bosozoku gangs and Kaido racer cars. It makes more sense when the license plate is mounted below the bumper, to make it look like it was bent because the car is lowered so much.
