Mine on my Durango simply says "I'd rather be driving my 57 Chevy".

Default It fits

The topic being "bumper stickers" I just have to share this small story.
Back in July of 1960, just one month to the day after I got my 55, we were sitting in front of Cordova Drag Strip waiting to turn into the area.
A pickup pulling a trailer with a dragster on it, coming from the other direction was turning in, we were waiting for him.
Anyway, we were just about ready to turn in when we hear the screeching of tires, then there was a huge impact as the fella rammed into the backside of my 55.
My steering wheel top half got bent out at a 90 degree angle, the front seat was ripped of it's tracks, but we all crawled out unhurt.
The fella that was "rubbernecking" instead of watching where he was going didn't fare as well, he lost some of his forehead in the windsheild of his little English Ford.
Now, back to the main topic "bumper stickers", here's the frosting on the cake.
This dude had a bumpar sticker on his front bumper, and you won't believe what it said.
Wait for it, this fits.............................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ......................... "Caution, road hog at wheel"

Got it documented on 8 mm movie film, just happened to have the old movie camera with me .
The patrol car that came to the accident was a blue four door 55 Chevy with twin red spot lights, it was cool.
I don't recall any bumper stickers on it though, but it might have had a few.

Later, and keep a sharp eye out for bumper stickers, they might tell you something about the driver. Ya think?

So I followed your advice. Worked great! Now I can have whatever bumper stickers I want, and change them out any time I want. Here is the pic of my first.

Get a "Make America Great Again" bumper sticker while you can still find them. Or a Hillary bumper sticker, but those are really rare already, LOL

That's not really what I am going for.

I'd like to see a bumper sticker that reads
"AMERICA IS ALREADY GREAT, LET'S MAKE IT BETTER"

Used to see a lot of them in the 60's, 70's, and 80's...I think they are dying out rarely see them now unless its left over from a political year.

I was born in 78 so I have an affinity for that era, and that is what I am going for. Now I just want to find a sticker from an old rock station here in Houston.
