    Your friends car looks like shit. Those stickers are stupid.

    Whoa take it easy there Onyx! Somebody jerks off to they'er T/A a tad too much. The car looks pretty damn good to me. I'll agree with you on the sticker, but to each his own. TK Rice Killer had his online name on the back of his Z28 (between the tail lights, pre-berger), and I thought it looked pretty pimp! But replaced it with just a large Z28. Also looked good. Also Notice he says on the website "Estimated 435 hp". He's not even sure the HP. So just take it with a grain of salt.

    Fade2Black, take pictures of your car and use a photo editing program and try putting different sayings on your car in different areas. That way you can try as much as you want without spending any dough . If you don't have one, download PaintShop Pro it's decent... and free.

    WTF does "Somebody jerks off to they'er T/A a tad too much" mean.

    Fade2Black do not listen to any advice graphicshomo gives you. Do not do anything remotely close to what your friend did to his car. And to take 435hp with a grain of salt is asking a bit much. Thats one hell of a claim and it takes quite a bit of cash to achieve those numbers. That is called posing my friend you sound much like a ricer(use a photo editing program and try putting different sayings on your car in different areas) .

    well it's a 346ci engine btw...

    not a fan of the stickers he has on his car but to each his own. the hp claim is pretty null and void unless he's packing a lot more than he says in his mods. my last car had tons more than that one and it dyno'd at 502hp on a 100 dry shot kit.

    but if you figure out what decals you want made up visit my friend shawn at www.fourthcircledesigns.com and mention me to get 10% off. he uses the best vinyl and can make whatever you like.

    Where the hell's the poll? I gotta put my vote here with this, ...

    Okay, maybe not that harsh tho, ..., Doesn't exactly look like 'shit' because that's a statement of opinion.

    I do have to agree with the thought tho, ..., I don't like the idea or the 'Stang Killer' decals.

    Good chance of your car getting keyed in a parking lot when you're not lookin', ...

    Lose the stickers - if you want to attract attention (and by attention I mean every damn fool kid that thinks he has a killer car will want to race you on the highway - get a personalized plate to serve the purpose.

    Mine says 'ITSQUIK' - the above mentioned portion of our population try to get me to prove it over & over...

    I don't waste the gas on anything that doesn't look like it could give me run for my money

    BTW, I'm glad your friend is not 'estimating' my property taxes!

    To think; all the $$/time/engine mods I spent to get to the numbers in my sig - and all I had to do was add a lid/K&N/catback! Oh well, to each his own. Tell your friend to take his car to a dyno (and I mean a Mustang Dyno) and then he won't have to estimate anymore - course he probably won't post the results either...

    Unless of course he is estimating his flywheel HP?

    I know, we're brutal here - actually this site calmed down some since the 'old days'.

    Thank you. I hate it when people shout "it's stupid" or "your stupid", just lowers they'er intelegence level to that of my eight year old . Thankfully this board and a few others have remained rather calm and sain.

    Fade2Black, if you really want to do vinyl. By all means go for it! It's your car, your the one that has to look at it and drive it. Enjoy it why'll you can.

    As for the license idea thats probably the better route. Love the "ITSQUIK". But I also liked somebodies "WANARCE", or something like that. I'm still trying to figure out what to put on mine. But I'll wait till I get more money pumped into the car first .

    As for Mr. "Mustang Killer", I'm not even going to go there lol.

    I also put some vinyl on my car. Probably get flamed for it, but my friends and I like it. And it's an old saying of mine. Had it done when I got the windows tinted.

    As they said above, I wouldn't put anything on your car like your friend did unless you want it keyed when no-ones around.... I probably would have done a personalized plate or something instead, but want to appear innocent as can be when or if I get pulled over in my T/A. lol

    Ha you guys are still talking about those ugly ass stickers on that Z. If you want to do something tasteful that wont stand out like that get a decal like I did on my mirror.

    Heres a pic.

    I like the decals. If you got those they'd make your car say I've got big ass balls! hahaha, BUT like that guy said, I'd be scared a mustang terrorist would key it or something.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm into the muscle car rivalry thing too, but sometimes it goes too far. My girlfriend for instance, just got a '00 GT this Summer. Yes, she did this inspite of me being a chevy/CAMARO guy. It doesn't help that I have a v6 a4 and she has a v8 5spd manual. I'm almost scared to make mustang jokes around her now hahahahaha. She still can't beat me though, not yet anyways. My Camaro got ups

    But when it comes to the decals, I'd just say be careful man. Do what you want and have fun with it.
