I have a safety star and a HAMB topper.
I need to finish building the hot rod before I can mount them. Neither fits on the Falcon, as both bumpers overhang the top of the plates.
There is an Anderson SC on the Worth Point web site but you have to sign up to get info and it doesn’t show if it is an older date or current. Since I have you here , I have been watching lately on YouTube racing at Anderson Speedway. Have you ever been ?
Thank you, the topper on the Worth Point site was sold several years ago, it was located in Atlanta, Georgia. it was probably owned by someone that had relocated to Georgia.
As to the racing at Anderson Speedway, I have been there many times in my life, my uncle ran back in the 60's when it was a dirt track and I tried once in the late 70's , let's just say I didn't finish last but I was close!
We actually go a few times a year, it's about 20 miles from where I live and always enjoyable. HRP
Looks like a fun track . There is a young man that has MS , happy go lucky fellow that ran street stocks last year and running Legends series this year. Plesko is his name. Both cars are Petty blue , # 43. Quite the inspirational fellow Another guy named Beau runs two different cars # 10.
My 35 tub, I've a few other NOS toppers for my 46 Olds; Chicago Auto Club, VFW et al
I doubt your Anderson plaque will show up out here , but when I go back to visit in Virginia, I get off the beaten path and hit a lot of antique stores from basically from Oklahoma right across to Va. Then I hit a lot of shops in Virginia , if I find one or something related I will grab it for you. A few really good places in Arkansas and Tennessee.
Thank you my friend!, like anything there is no telling where you will find oddities & items that have nothing to do with the local area.
We were at the Henry Ford Museum and on the ceiling in the men's restroom was a Clemson Tiger Paw logo, the local collage. HRP
A couple more I found while wandering around the shop. Small one is definitely original. The aluminum topper is probably a repro casting of an original. I got it off ebay years ago but have never seen another so who knows.
Some 50 characters from Canada and the U.S. be came "a thing" beginning about 2010. Our common interest was beer, BS and drivin around burnin fossil fuel. A logo was put together and toppers produced for each to finish as they saw fit.
And, who can forget the Fooey Face toppers....awesome....video below....

I like the CanAm one and the BCHRA ones.
"Clowns..... why is it always clowns?"
A friend gave me this one a few years ago. I dont think I’ve ever seen another.
On my 5 window.
In the process of restoration, thanks to my artistically talented daughter-in-law.
lots of tag toppers for sale online - some very expensive
Small pic from my hometown.
Found this one at a local estate auction...
...a fun vanity plate I found in the back of a 56 Ford I bought.
I'm going to try making my own tag topper this summer for a cool breakfast place I enjoy
Where did you get that one ? I want one
