I can just see pulling into some biker bar with #9, the cute li'l blonde.

Which reminds me of my one biker story. Which, to understand, you need to know that traditionally American bikers ride only Harleys or, at worst, German bikes - never Japanese.

Back when I had my comic store, one day a biker couple walk in - leather, decals, the whole shebang. They spot the Ghost Rider poster I've got on the wall. It was a very badass painting - GR's flaming skull head and ribs peeping out of his leathers, hellbike spewing out demonic flames and tires made of fire, demons dancing in the background.

Then I see the woman's expression grow suspicious, and even skeptical. "I dunno, babe" she says to him. "I think it's a Honda."

That is a very amusing story. A+

Are you sure you wouldn't rather roll up to the bar in #12? It looks totally manly.
Stuff I'm into at the moment: Geeknights, Anime World Order, Nerdy Show ,and baking.

The first person to import that decal technology to the States is going to make a fortune.

I followed links, obviously at random, from the second link. Wound up lots of odd places.

Not in the league of other cars in this thread, but I just spotted a white, two-seater convertible with a big "M" (or is it a "W"?) on the hood and a "5" in a circle on the door, i.e., a Mach 5. Heading north on Quivera, just south of 435.
