    Thanks Joey. Brings back memories of the hometown parades where everything from firetrucks to the kid's bikes had flags on them. Have a great and safe 4th to all!

    I wish I could find a picture, but a few years ago I saw a 67 camaro at a local show that I remember vividly. It was a simple off white color and had cragar SS's with slicks in back. No stickers, no graphics or anything blingy, but it had a small American flag on both front fenders and a veterans license plate. It wasn't the Fourth of July so It always sticks out in my mind because all it took was a couple 3x5" flag decals and and a license plate to remind me what that flag means to us. Happy 4th everyone.

    I'm kind of partial to the altered Plymouth. Imagine that me liking a MOPAR!

    I like it in moderation. When it's over done, it's tacky and sometimes, it's just damned ugly.

    Made me smile just thinking about it. I was one of those kids in the parade. Good memories.

    Well, I am moments away from just such a home town parade. Fire trucks, old cars an all! The pictures are cool...can't help but think of Evel Knievel, and that's a good thing!

    Smells like gun powder around here... The smoke is so thick outside that you could cut it with a butter knife...

    Obviously not a Hot Rod, but a patriotic (if idealistic) way to see America none the less.

  18. Could it get more patriotic than AMC's Red/White/Blue schemes? ;)

    Darryl Hollenbeck posted this one a few days ago- kinda reminded me of Robt. Wms.'32 for some reason, just the big graphic shapes cutting through the Deuce lines- (Thom Taylor designed the layout)

    Patriotic?

    The U.S. Flag Code frowns on the use of the flag "for advertising purposes." It goes on to warn against the sale or display of any "article upon which shall have been printed, painted, attached, or otherwise placed a representation of "the flag to advertise", call attention to, decorate, mark, or distinguish the article or substance on which so placed."

    In other words, when you wear a flag T-shirt or hat while reclining on an American flag beach towel near your American flag camping chair, you are violating the Flag Code. The code, which was drawn up at the first National Flag Conference in Washington in 1923, is part of the law of the land. But it is not enforced, nor is it enforceable. It is merely a set of guidelines, letting Americans know what to do -- and what not to do -- with our red, white and blue national emblem.
