Quick Story

The other day we were out wakeboarding and a guy had just put his air natique in the water for the first time (he bought it that day) the thing ran for like 2 minutes and died. So when we towed him back to the boat ramp I claimed his Natiques Only sticker off his Escalade

I put the small "Team MasterCraft" sticker on the rear window of my truck. I certainly didn't do it to be a snob; most folks don't even know what a MasterCraft is. I did it primarily for recognition from other MC owners, and because I'm proud of the MC. Obviously if I'm towing it there's no need for the decal, but it's for when I'm not towing it, just as a reminder.

I also put a small American flag on the other side, but I guess that's unnecessary too, since I'm obviously an American?

What I don't understand is why people leave the stickers/plaque/license frame from the car dealer on the back of their vehicle? Unless they're paying me to endorse their dealership, that thing's coming off as soon as I get home. I especially don't understand why they leave the sticker from a different brand on there (i.e., a "Bob's Nissan" sticker or license plate frame on their Toyota). This just points out the fact that you bought it used, not that there's anything wrong with that (in fact it's usually a better idea), but it just looks weird.

I'll bet that Harley makes about as much money from their merchandise as they do from selling motorcycles. Practically every person I know that owns a Harley almost always wears something with "H-D" written on it.

I did this once with a Mistsubishi that I bought at a Toyota Dealer. I left the front toyota dealer plate on because it perfectly covered up a dent in the front bumper. I took it off once, and the dent became very obvious and ugly. On my current car, the dealer stickers didn't last 5 minutes in my driveway.

I keep my license plate cover on, because I do promote the local chevy dealership, and it is cool to see where people are from when you are driving! Now on the other hand keeping other dealerships on the car like you said driving a geo metro(not to out down a metro) with a Mercedes benz dealership on it bothers me! When I buy a used car I change them right away!

I think you are right
if I remember right, jesse james made more off his merchandising of the wcc branded everything in 04 than he did off any work

I hate those dealer stickers! Last 3 cars I've bought I asked the dealer to remove prior to delivery.
