Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2009: I've found something GREAT

I just found this website: http://www.visiblevintageautos.com/

It's a Ford Script magnet - reflective. I think it's a great idea. It's the blue oval script, but I think the "cop lights" blue color will catch someones eye faster than any other color anyway. The kit comes with three ovals and two little red decals for your bumpers too.

Here are the before and after photos taken from that website, on a Model A sedan.

Ok, my "sticker" arrived in the mail today. It came with one blue oval and two little red magnets.

I tried taking photos of everything, but it's almost impossible with a flash camera. I tried it on the floor and then slapped it onto a car we're working on. The car was taken about 12 feet away, with the setting on the camera turned down as far as it would go.

Go to his website to buy some of these. I have nothing to do with it, just a happy customer that found a great product on the internet by accident.

Bump. I just ordered the standard set. Looks like a good idea.

Tim, I have the cheapest of the cheap Fuji digital cameras, if I go into it's menu, I can disable the flash.

I recently purchased the 3 pak. One of the signs was damaged, so I e-mailed Steve. He sent me a new replacement the next day. That is what I call service!

I returned the damaged sign to him - to help him with quality control.

The signs look great. Thanks to Tim for telling us about this firm.

Try just putting your finger over the flash. (That's the lazy mans way to dismantle the flash.)Been there done it!

David ordered a set of these. . . great for safety - and a wonderful gift idea for the Model T guy that needs "more stuff"!

I got mine the other day, and they're even better than the website says. The website says that the Ford oval logo is magnetic, but that the red squares are adhesive. I figured I'd put the squares on pieces of magnetic rubber sheet, but they came already magnetic. If it weren't so cold here right now, I'd go for an evening drive... :-)

It is not cold up here in Wisconsin, so it can't be cold by you. We are expecting 4 inches tonite and 5 more inches on Tuesday of that pretty white stuff. Want me to send some to you? We already sent some to Houston on Thursday.

Dave, there's cold and there's cold. By Wisconsin standards, it's probably pretty balmy here, but for driving my touring, I need more reason than just testing a couple of reflective magnets! We haven't had any snow here yet, and I'm already hoping that the snow fairy forgets about us.

Being originally from Wisconsin, I know what cold looks like. It is 28 above right now in Flagstaff, AZ. and we are expecting two feet of snow between tonight and Tuesday. Will have to get some of those signs to find my way back home.
Dick
