What does/would your Spoiler Decal Read?

I've been contemplating getting a decal for my spoiler and I thought it would be kinda funny if it said

"My other car is a Saturn"

I doubt if I'd do it but I thought it would be funny. I'll probably go with something more conservative like "Porsche" "986" or "Boxster" and not turn my Boxster into an ironic bumper sticker.

So I was curious as to how many people have put a decal on their spoiler and what they all read.

I have PORSCHE in silver that matches my paint on the black panel of my spoiler. It might look like a little bling to some folks, but my son really likes it. It is one of the few cosmetic mods I have done to the car besides deampering. And being on the base of the spoiler, folks when I am going fast..... hee, hee, hee,

Talking My Other Car is a Prius

If I if put a decal on the spoiler, I would consider "My Other Car Is A Prius".

I am not a big fan of stickers, decals or badges. But, how about:

"If you can read this decal, you are too fuc$ing close to my bumper!"

Mine says "MACH SCHNELL" in Porsche lettering, all caps.

I used to have a photo of it but I can't find it to post it.

Never forget the cop whose pulling you over to possibly write you a speeding ticket will read whatever you put on the spoiler. It goes up at 70 but doesn't come down until you drop below 50.

Put something like "catch me if you can" on it and well, you're not getting a verbal warning from that cop, that's for sure!

I'm in the same boat with any cop who knows a little German... but I've yet to get stopped for speeding, thanks to my trusty V1.

I never knew you could stick a sticker under the spoiler. I've never seen mine up so I never considered it.

What does "mach schnell" mean? I highly doubt any of the cops around here read German.

LB, you should get one that simply says, "LoveBunny". I'll bet that will help you find that house-cleaning-laundry-doing-grocery-shopping-all-around-good-guy within 6 months.

Either that or I might find a pimp....

I used to have a sticker on the back window of my Lexus that said "PORN STAR" and had a little stick figure woman spanking a stick figure man. I thought it was funny, but I started getting odd looks and questions from a lot of the attorneys I worked with when they'd see my car, so I decided to take it off. Guess I could hide anything under the spoiler though.

I went with PORSCHE in red. I love the way it looks against my blue car. Although I considered 986, and some other things I went with Porsche because it's classic and everyone can understand it.

I also wired in a dash spoiler switch, so whenever I see someone looking at my car as I drive by or another Porsche I pop the spoiler.

Mach Schnell means Go Fast! or Go faster!

It was made popular when Hogan's Heroes was running in prime time. The fat guard used to bark it and the prisoners all the time.

I like that "Mach Schnell"-- "Go Fast!" Too bad I pulled the spoiler fuse out when I got my big wing spoiler and will take out the spoiler mechanism entirely when I have time. I think I still have a sticker from my work on my spoiler that I forgot about.

Hmm... I loved Hogan's Heroes when I was a kid. It's probably online somewhere, but it's probably better in my memory than if I saw it again.

Why would you pull the spoiler motor out?
