  3. If you think it enhances the look of your car, run it. I have yet to find one that I believe makes my car look better....kinda like how I feel about tattoos. I'd love to have one but haven't found a design I like yet.
    My brother says when we start adding stuff like this we've owned the car too long.
    I have one topper [FTF] but I still haven't found a good place for it. Prolly leave it in the drawer.

    My HAMB plaque flies atop my rear plate...Had it on front, but F100 is SO low only the snakes and kids could see it.
    I don't run one foglight, either. On anything.

  12. Danny, I guess I never answered. No story, just one I had laying around. I see this one once in awhile. Seems I am always catching something on the wings.:oops:

    I have my H.A.M.B. topper on the rear tag and one PASSING light on the front.

    See, that suits because it's understated, the play on words made it worth reading. That and the precarious position that curbs threaten its existence.

    A collection of state park emblems on a well worn station wagon? Sure.

    But toppers for the sake of toppers? Questionable, but it's your car not mine.

    Aerocolor, Where do you find most of your toppers? I’ve been thinking of collecting a few of my own.

    My tags came with a parking pass, does that count as a topper?
    I am not a fan of bumper stickers or joke toppers in general.
    I am planning on running a small vintage "Virginia AAA" badge on a bumper as well, but am a AAA member, and they might end up hauling me home a time or two, so figured it would look alright.

    I’m not particularly fond of them, but that Standard Oil topper changes the whole game, I’d run that if I found one.

  20. I think they are neat, especially the old ones. If you have more than one put them in rotation. I have an old original, local to our area, but I think it is a grille badge. The various livestock breeds had them in the lower 48 and I would be all about one of them on my half ton, would have to sharpen my people skills to answer questions if I took it to a show.

  22. I sold the '38 Ford pickup that was lettered as a shop truck for the local Ford dealer back in the day (Drake Motor Co. Rockmart GA), but if I ever find a Drake Motor Co. tag topper or dealer emblem, I'll put it on Ozelle the '55 Ford that was bought new at Drake Motor Co.

    None for me, please.
     
  24. One, as in one is too many? Yet you show one as if to indicate you have one, therefore one is good? Confusion reigns in my tiny mind.:confused:
