Hmmm - wonder if was put there purposely, or just ended up there fortuitously when he ran over it?

He has it all bracketed and screwed and also has the design for the pin striping on it.

I think he stole it from the vehicle parked next to him. Either way, he's got QUITE the flair for cusstomizing![V]

His truck, his money, his idea of what is cool. JMHO, but beyond the use of the road sign as a front spoiler, any time "props" (think stuffed Raggedy Ann/weeping overalls doll, or even [u]http://www.ehow.com/video_2383113_props-1950s-car-hop-character.html</u>) are used around a show/cruise vehicle, it may indicate something about the owner and his concept of car qua machine versus car qua ego extension/lifestyle.

thnx, jack vines

Well, let me tell you.... Many years ago, when my son was a teenager, one of those signs found it's way to my garage...
I never quite knew what to do with it, so it was stuck it in my sheet stock pile.

Sometime later, while looking for some material to make a switch panel out of, I spied the sign in the corner. Once you remove (with heat) the reflective masking and signage, what you wind up with is a 1/8" sheet of very maleable aluminum.
The stuff is great for exactly what the guy with the rice-rocket did... 'cept to avoid getting a visit from the local gendarmes, he should have scraped off the orange stuff..
