Wordless Wednesday: Stickers Galore

Wordless Wednesday: Bumper Stickers Galore

 

It's probably no surprise to anyone who knows anything about Southern California that we are a surfing culture, with lots of surfers, surfboards, and wetsuits along the coast, in and out of the water.

 

I spied this vintage vehicle and wetsuit in Cardiff by the sea 10 years ago and HAD to stop and snap a photo. This takes bumper stickers to a new level, don't you think?

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS - it does take bumper stickers to a new level.  I don't think another sticker will fit.

Good morning Jeff Dowler, CRS those bumper stickers may be the glue holding the vehicle together

Jeff,

It is a common sight around here, where we have lots of surfers also. We recently saw one of those van that are bigger and can be lived in, and we talked to the guy who built in a home with cupboards for himself and his dog.  He had been to every state.  A

I wonder when they went to sell the car if they argued that the stickers made it worth more.  That's what a home owner would do.

You may be right Grant Schneider  I have watched for this van along the coast when in the Cardiff area but have never seen it again.

I suppose the owner would argue it's a bumper sticker collector's dream and one of a kind, Chris Ann Cleland !  I would think it would be hard to part with.

Jeff I would say that is a very well traveled vehicle!!!

This looks familiar.. I feel like I've seen it parked in a parking lot in Maryland a couple of years ago. It definitely caught my eye and I contemplated taking a picture as well. If those wheels could talk!

Hi Jeff- I love it!!! When Larry left the Air Force he outfitted a VW Van with a bed and small sink and traveled around Colorado for a few months. This was before I knew him but he did have the van when we met.

When I see a vehicle covered with decals like that, I wonder if it is holding said vehicle together 

Happy Wednesday evening Jeff Dowler, CRS

Morning Jeff.

That reminds me of my dads last vehicle.  It was covered with those stickers.

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty) 10 days ago

Jeff Dowler, CRS that is a memorable vehicle. Don't see many of those around here.

Posted by Wayne Johnson, San Antonio REALTOR, San Antonio Homes For Sale (Coldwell Banker D'Ann Harper REALTORS®) 10 days ago

If I came upon that van I would likely stop and read as many of those stickers as I could.

Posted by Brian England, MBA, GRI, REALTOR® Real Estate in East Valley AZ (Vacasa) 10 days ago

Best way to hide the paint or a dent, just put a sticker over it and don't go through a car wash with brushes

I have seen vans like this one Jeff.  And maybe it was from you, if you posted it before. Or maybe John DL Arendsen uses one like this on his surfing days!
