Default Help me out here

I have been debating on whether or not to put my web site on my car. The advantages would be nice advertising for me. The down side I think may out weight the plus side
My car would have to be perfect ALL THE TIME> I can't achieve that, now that winter is here and I drive it all the time. can't imagion have PerfectAutoFinish on a car that looks like ^&&%(^%&$$
Next I don't want it to look tacky by being a "company type vehicle" any feedback yeh or ney with suggestions I appreciate. gary If I did it my thought was to put it on the back window, lower area about 1-2" high across the lower section, too to much, just enough. Thanks Gary

Isn't there magnetized vinyl? Have it on that, press it on when you car's pristine (like at a show), and take it off the rest of the time.
How many folks are going to take note while you're driving anyway - a sign propped on dash and in rear at a show would make more sense anyway.
My $.02.

My recommendation would be--DO IT! [|)] Something like this would look nice and not be "too much"...

Gary, I think you need a combination of both the suggestions above. At a car show or similar event a sign on the dash would be great. But, you still want to advertise your business to a wider audience. This is where a magnetic sign would be benficial and as quicksilverdon mentioned, just remove it when your car doesn't look it's best. You could also have a window cling made up which would be easy to add and remove.

Gary, I can't really add to the above, but I think something that is easily removeable would be the best idea. It's got you covered that way.

I don't know if this will help or not but,
here it is. turbomangt-you might also want to
correspond with "Airbillster"(Bill) about how
his business 'sky rocketed' just this week after
posting his website. Sometimes I think I'm TOO
Careful. On my pants I wear a belt & suspenders.

Thanks Gary, does that mean that you're going to come to our house and detail our Cruisers for us?

Naww I wouldn't do it. I like my privacy. I brought my car because it looked cool, I'm not into the rolling billboards, because you will never ever be able to disconnect from your business while you are driving the car. There will come a time when you will want to get away from it all and you can't if you are driving the car. God forbid if you ever have a customer from hell, who spots your car while it is; in your drive, at the store, while you are dining out, etc, blah, blah, blah. Yeah, I know somebody had to disagree.
