Okay, maybe it's not such a big deal but why not write about something rather than nothing?

As many of you know, I've named my vehicles in the past. Ezekiel - Homer for my 2 red Dodge Ram trucks and now Evangeline for my silver Dodge Challenger because cars, even muscle cars look more feminine than masculine.

I got the factory stripes removed because they chopped the sleek lines of the car by slashing diagonally through instead of running along horizontally. If you can't visualize this perhaps your ability to visualize doesn't expand to B Body cars.

What I've done this time is actually order a custom made decal for the car's back bumper spelling out EVANGELINE in a font [Lazerbeam surprise @ size 288] that conveys speed in a size that can be seen from at least five car lengths away. The colour I've ordered for the decal is Amethyst glitter which will compliment the silver very nicely.

Now my other idea for some custom painted details will have to wait while I mull the whole thing over and figure out just how original I want to be without being gaudy.

I already have an NRA sticker in the back window thanks to my buddy in Kentucky sending me one.

Nose Art
I would say keep it real simple, maybe have someone draw up a nose art of Evangeline, put it only on the driver's side quarter panel just forward of the door, aft of the front wheel well.

The size would be very critical, you want something that stands out but at a distance of about 20 feet not very noticable. And I suggest paying someone who does really nice air brush work rather than going with a decal thing.

heh heh... I had to go look up nose art to figure out what you meant. Sorta like the paintings on souped up vans .. right? Not sure if I would go to that length but whatever I do it will be painted instead of a decal. I was advised to do so by the lady at the sign shop before she quit her job. I appreciate advice. Perhaps a replica of the Evangeline statue in Grand Pré Nova Scotia? That would be sort of be a grey on silver but those dudes are artists.
