I'm starting a file...
And one from a few years ago...
Friends don't let friends put Ford stickers on a Chevy
You could write a pretty interesting coffee table book. I have been tempted to take pictures of horrible abominations, but I'm usually the guy that gets caught taking pictures - then, of course the owner wants to brag and chat about his car, I'm not a very good liar.
Thats a shame cause that 1st engine compartment looks nice
I can picture John ripping the sticker off and getting chased across the park by the car owner, but then he'd have to sneak back to clean the sticker residue off the plastic, lol.
My friends wanted me to explain to the owner the issue and I think I could have in a nice way but alas...he wasn't around his car all day.
I did explain the situation to a nice older guy wearing an Italian Hot Rod Association shirt (lol) and he actually thanked me for pointing that out to him.
Now sitting directly across from where we were parked was a pretty clean '55 Chevy that was sitting about 2" lower on the drivers side...just all crooked. Minor to some you may ask but how in God's green earth could anyone get behind the wheel and drive that car down the road is beyond me.
Just to get it to the shop I'd have to load the front fender down with about 100#'s of sand just so people wouldn't laugh at me.
Again...this guy probably doesn't know his car sits like ass, and I'm guessing he'd appreciate someone letting him know...save some future embarrassment. If I had seen the guy I'd probably made mention...
And the sticker thing started like this...
...one guy mistakenly puts a Ford "caution fan" sticker on his radiator shroud because he thinks it looks cool...obviously oblivious to the fact that The General never did.
Guy takes his car to shows and pictures get taken and with the power of the 'net, soon other idiots start doing the same thing.
Now Chevy and Camaro catalogs start taking notice and yes, you guessed it...now they're listing genuine Ford "caution fan" stickers in their books and on the 'net.
Here's a good thread from camaros.net about those bleeping decals.
Maybe the owner is just a clumsy idiot
Perfect example of over-restoring a car instead of just making it clean. Step away from the grease pencils and decals.
