Exactly what I do, had a Chevy dealer try and call my bluff once. They ended up removing them all.

No stickers on the back of my cars. If I ever get a beater pickup truck to run to the dump and go to Lowes, etc. with - I'll sticker the shit out of it though.

As a fellow NOVA resident, this. No way I want to drive a No step on snek vanity license plate into DC.

I will respectfully disagree with this statement. I think it depends on where you live.

I for one, live in probably the most liberal county in VA, and am a stones throw from both DC and Maryland. Especially with the baseball shooting in the forefront of everyones mind here, I dont want to give any indication of my political affiliation on my car.

Just my opinion.

Nothing political or firearms related. A small Arsenal FC sticker, a town dump/beach sticker and a small Catalan flag - 99% of the country probably doesn't know what it is or signifies.

I prefer to keep my car in conceal carry mode, that way nobody knows for sure what I've got! Also I really just like the look of a really clean car without a bunch of stickers .

Any of you that put a Yeti sticker on your cars - I want you to stop and think long and hard about your actions, and the direction your life is going.

I bought a car from a large dealer here in the area, couple months ago. As we walked away from the car toward the office to do the paperwork I pointed to the dealer's sticker on the back and said "that's a deal breaker."

The sticker was gone when I came out of the office and looked at the vehicle.

I don't put stickers on my vehicles, mostly due to laziness on my part.
My biggest concern, I work for an army that still requires me to have a DoD sticker on any vehicle I plan to drive on depot.
It may seem a small thing, but it does "mark me" as associated with the military, the government, etc...

I had a similar situation, did not want anything affixed to my windshield, so I put it in a holder on my sunvisor. I just flip the sunvisor down when I need the ID displayed; at other times, when not needed, it is out of sight.

I prefer the gray man tactic as well. Eventually I may festoon my Cherokee with various stickers, but at that point it's going to be a built-out off road machine that screams "yeah, there's probably a gun in the trunk" anyway.

I am who I am and I'm not about to change it, especially over some asshattery. By the same token, I want to see THEM coming. I have no interest in them seeing ME coming, or doing some chickenshit like keying the hell out of my car when I'm not around because they want to Stick It To The Man or some dumb shit.

My friends know my beliefs, and anybody who is curious is welcome to ask. I don't feel the need to broadcast.

Ditto. I remove their license plate frame and if they've used adhesive on my paint for a dealer logo, then they just lost the sale. Like you I also debadge some of the oem stuff.

There is a racer, who died, young, whom I'm quite fond of and met shortly before he passed. I have a commemorative decal, that is done extremely well, and I'd like to put it on one of my cars. But I don't. Don't want anything on it to distinguish it from someone else's. I just bought light weight wheels for it to reduce unsprung mass, dropping 10 lbs off each corner, and I'm having the center caps replaced with OEM logos to make it look more factory.

This world, is slowly or quickly turning into hate filled. I've learned to have a daily driver that blends in with everything, to the point of no one looking or caring at all about it. My go fast car, I don't park unattended. The one time I did I had multiple people all over it, peering in the windows, etc. I've read and heard of vandalism, for nothing other than jealousy. This younger gen wants everything for free so some of them hate seeing others with nice things who have worked their asses off for it, even though they want everything handed to them. I recommend everyone get a daily driver and keep your nice shit in a garage and drive it on the weekends. The inexpensive daily driver is hugely beneficial parking at work as you draw no attention. Same goes for any time you'll park it unattended.



Wyatt, maybe he ought to check his knife too. I heard he cut that man in Texas from his belly to his dick.

It might be a level of caution some aren't interested in, but that's why it's a free country.

I see the bro with "Assault Life" and "NRA", "TRUMPTRUMPTRUMP" stickers as possibly having a weapon in the vehicle, if I should ever need to acquire a weapon in short order. The owner likely wont be carrying one, or it's safely under the driver's seat, with a loaded magazine and empty chamber.

At least its far more likely to find a weapon in that vehicle than in the "Hillary for President 2016" adorned vehicle.
