    Late 50's in Alabama. I had "little red wagon" with a small wagon painted on the front fender at the bottom, near the door opening ,on my 50 merc. A buddy of mine had a 37 ford sedan ,white, with a big picture of goofy painted on the doors. Fitting name for him also.LOL Thanks, BOBBY FORD

    I'll be putting "River Valley Shaker" on my '40 Plymouth gasser after it gets painted...I've always loved drag car names like the Chi-town Hustler, Wilshire Shaker, Motown Missile, etc...

    I like the original urban legend with the chick in the vette rather than a fox body 'stang...for a girl to do that now wouldn't be as unique as back then...

    ~ Here on the West Coast it was done on the rear fender, The Kid up the street 2 years older than me had a sweet '64 or 5, 442 all jacked up red with two racing stripes done in lace and on the rear fenders near the bumper it said "Miss Lead"......I had a 47' Chevy Coupe and on the trunk lower right it said "Lickin' Stick" What else I used to see as a kid was the Guy's name on his door and his girlfriends name on her door.

    Late 50's and early 60's in east central Indiana. Most located on rear quarter close to the tail light. Most memorable was a gold Corvette coupe early Stingray was named FUJIMO in Japanese style letters. I met the guy many years later and found out that it stood for "F#%& you jack, I'm moving on". I would really like to steel that name.

  15. I remember Mr. Pepsodent. Also a'49-'52 Chevy convert. named "Mother-in-Law". Then there was a '62 Belair 409 "Death Trap", another '62 09 called "No-Doze" and the super good running 409 Belair named "Buzzard 2",but the oddest name I ever saw on a car was a '50 Ford with a Caddy in named"Logs Hollowin Sound"! I still have no freakin' idea what it refers to.
     
  16. These are on a 49-50 Ford in the bush up here. A Wanderer named Lil Mel!

    I had a friend that built a limo in the late 80's and had the name "Cherry Yachts A Fire" on the trunk lid.
     
  19. I remember that one!I think it was a 50 Chrysler.Had a saying on the back,"If you see this car on a trailer;call 911;it's stolen!" or something like that.Can't remember the show but it was sitting in a parking lot in the pouring rain.
     
  20. dad had a deuce 5window...full house flatty, grey primer, stock height roof, white vinyl roof insert, white grille insert, whitewall bigs & littles on black merc rims with lancer caps and the outer part of the rim painted red, nerf bars, full fendered, king bee lites...had the name "Wee Willie" painted on the 1/4 panels between the doors and rear fenders....I believe that name came from a gorilla that was part of the Huckleberry Hound cartoon show..and that gorilla could beat anything that he came up against...

    Back when my Dad was a kid a guy on his street had a Mercury custom (my Dad was not a car guy so I don't know the exact year or anything) that had Afterbirth painted on it. Used to piss my Grandma off a lot, I guess. This was a long time ago when that was probably pretty offensive.
