A very simple and straightforward question today – can you show a better window or bumper sticker than this, seen on a Citroen 2CV, where else?
One of my favs
If we’re getting political …
I spotted this on the back of a Miata being driven by a balding, middle aged guy:
“I still miss my Ex but my aim is improving”
My Olds. Period correct is the only way to roll.
Winning entry so far…..
This will always be my favorite.
Always a classic.
My favorite that I’ve seen on the street:
So much win 😀
That’s the best. I would definitely put that on my car and drive with a smile.
No photo, but I spotted a florist’s truck in D.C. a few months ago with this painted on the rear bumper:
CAUTION: FRAGRANT STOPS
Seen on the back of a window covering installer’s truck: “CAUTION: BLIND MAN AT THE WHEEL”.
Good one ! Which reminds me of ZZ Top’s “Arrested For Driving While Blind”.
Last week I saw an “Impeach Obama” sticker on a Prius.
Back in 2008 September two senior citizens on the Cross Bronx Expressway had an McCain 08 sticker. Pops and I had a good laugh.
Plate surround reads no rice carried or consumed in this vehicle, attached to 34 Terraplane thats regularly parked outside a Jap car wrecking yard.
You guys still say “Jap’ in NZ? What is it, 1962 there?
Thanks for this. I was thinking it, you wrote it.
Bryce may be many things, but a spokesman for our entire country he is not.
As seen on several non-Mercedes:
I have one from an oyster farm in Hoqiuam, Washington:
We Shuck ‘Em
You Suck ‘Em
I’m betting that is from from Brady’s Oysters, which actually has an Aberdeen address, even though they identify themselves as being in Westport. Unless someone from Hoquiam has copied my friend’s marketing efforts, which wouldn’t surprise me considering how popular they were when he first started selling them.
His best and most popular is Shuck Me, Suck Me, Eat Me Raw and I still see them all around the PNW and occasionally beyond. http://bradysoysters.myshopify.com/collections/clothing/products/shuck-me-suck-me-eat-me-raw-short-sleeve-t-shirt
Like I said, Hoqiuam. They were free too! Honestly, there is really very little difference between the towns, they’re even discussing merging Aberdeen, Hoquiam and Cosmopolis into one stronger city. Took this cruddy photo in my garage, the other one says ” Best Little Shuckin’ House in Washington “
Hmm, I wonder when they started doing those. My buddy started doing his with the racy sayings in the early 90’s. He had about 5 or 6 when he first started them but had dropped it down to the most popular ones.
This was my personal favorite. I put it on the back of my car when I was 17. It was on the car when I sold it to a 70 year old woman who thought it was funny.
It says. ” don’t let your mind wander it’s too little to be left alone”
It was still on the car when I spotted last summer and took this pic
Nice Chevette! 🙂
Reminds me of my ’84.
Mine was an 87. 2 door automatic Loved it. Never should have sold it
“BUCKLE UP: It makes it harder for the aliens to suck you out of your car!”
Sign in parking lot of a roadside ‘gator attraction in Florida:
No Parking! The last car that parked here is still missing!
“Very funny Scotty now beam down my clothes!”
Mostly good stickers so far.
This Way Up
i collected bumper stickers and my two all time favourites were;
THE DAY MY SHIP COMES IN I WILL PROBABLY BE AT THE AIRPORT
MAKE IT IDIOT PROOF AND SOMEONE WILL MAKE A BETTER IDIOT
I think the best one so far is Roger’s original posting, not so much for its message but the for the URL at the bottom … 2CV speed shop. ??!!!????!! That’s the ultimate oxymoron.
Well, fitting a BMW boxer motorcycle engine to a 2CV is straightforward…………
Back in the 1970s when most tv stations were showing Star Trek reruns.
He’s dead Jim. I’ll get his tricorder, you grab his wallet.
My favorite one. I had a version on a 1987 Chevrolet pickup that advised people to drive Fords to live forever…
Spotted on a telephone company repair van, years ago in Vancouver :” You can’t be first, but you could be next”
I remember seeing as a young child:
KEEP DEATH OFF THE ROAD…..DRIVE ON THE PAVEMENT
I peeled a warning label from one of the dead argon lasers at work and found a siutable place under the hood on my 94 xr7. It had the laser warning graphic on it with the words “Caution Laser Radiation Inside Disconnect All Power Before Removing Cover”. The car is long gone and no photos.
Since we are in the presidential campaign season, my bumper sticker would read:
Betty Draper for President ….”Hillary, go to your room!!!”
The campaign would be handled by Sterling, Cooper, Price, Draper.
Am looking forward to a COAL on the ’65 Caddy (spoiler redacted).
Not all that car-related, but…
In 1995 — when Windows 95 was the big new thing in the PC world — I bought an ’84 Toyota Cressida from a pal who’s an Apple snob. When I took possession of “Betsy”, the first order of business was scraping off the previous owner’s uber-nerdy fluorescent-orange bumper sticker which proclaimed to the world:
“WINDOWS 95 = MAC 89.”
Seen on a garbage truck: Follow me in reverent silence.
And, there was the one I ran on an old Chevy pickup back in Nixon’s day: FOUR MORE YEARS? WHY NOT FIVE TO TWENTY?
Fluke Transportation Group… “If it’s on time… It’s a Fluke”
In the ’70’s I had a “Save a tree, eat a beaver” license frame on my ’66 VW Bus.
For the Prius drivers…
I like the green one in the foreground
I like cheap utilitarian vehicles that last a long time and work well. I am a fan of the plymouth valiant and the rambler american and ford granada and the last rear drive chevy nova. I also like the first ford fairmont, the AMC Spirit, and the jeep cherokee of the 80s with the big inline six .
I like the VW beetle except for its failings in extreme weather…extreme cold and extreme heat.
The 2CV is one that makes my list.
“keep talking i’m reloading”
“earth first. we will log the other planets later”
“voldermort for president”
“republicans debate minimum wage. democrats debate healthcare.”
and the tops down best bumper sticker i’ve ever seen …. “have you read to your child today?” the rest are funny this one is serious.
Saw this one last year at Carlisle Import. A good chuckle.
My favorite so far is “THIS IS NOT FACEBOOK AND I AM NOT YOUR FRIEND”. I have it on my Renault Clio, next to “Professor Longhair 1918-1980”.
I also ordered “GLOBAL WARMING MEANS A LONGER GOLF SEASON” but so far I have refrained from putting it on my 1976 Coupe De Ville (maybe due to what the good PJ O’Rourke calls the “Went To College Part Of The Brain”, or maybe I’m just chickening out, I’d hate to find this car all scratched…). Once in Sweden I saw “Riktiga bilar drar minst 2 liter per mil” (= “real cars need at least 20 liters per 100 kms”) on the back window of a (all rusted out) 1965 Chrysler. Loved it!
If watching a 100 lb. woman haul herself into the drivers seat of a very shiny new dodge diesel dually quad cab 4×4 wasn’t entertaining enough the sticker in the lower corner of her rear window that read:
Women fake orgasms
Men fake relationships
