You mean the things that sit infront of your car? If so, I would make a temporary one and buy one up in Carlisle. If you can't wait though, go to showboards.com

I made a stand using aluminum. You drive over it with a front tire. Sign is printed vinyl on plastic, velcroed on and the whole thing fits in the trunk.

I put one together with PVC pipe that slipps around the tire at the base to hold it. Printed a sign and had it laminated. It velcrows to the stand and compleatly brakes down to parts to take up VERY little room. I'll post a photo after I return from the Power Tour.

Small sign and disassembles are the key points for a Fiero show sign. The large ones will either not fit well or in time get damaged.

I have a similar set up on a free standing stand.

There are 2 ways to do it.
If you go to the websites that make them, expect to pay $100 to $300 for a nice one.
Some of the more popular and high quality places are:
http://carzigns.com/
http://www.palmiericoncepts.com/showpackage.html
http://www.metalimagecreati...ow%20car%20signs.htm

My first sign was drawn by myself using photoshop. I made it a standard 18" X 24". I then emailed the picture to a local Kinko's store and they printed it on a glossy 1/4" foam board for $40 (in full high res color) and I paid about $20 for a frame at Target that used lexan instead of glass. The best thing is you email to a local Kinko's in the morning and pick it up after lunch. Most pro places can take a week to three weeks to get it done.

After I did the V-8 swap I had Carzines do a sign for me and it now sits in the same frame.

Here is what I use. Total cost about $8.00 and it all disasembles and fits in the bottom of the trunk!

With just about any Ink Jet printer, you can make a really nice sign up that will be long lasting and rain / weather proof. You can buy the Ink Jet Vinyl to print on, when it dries, in about 10 minutes, it is completely water proof. I printed up some stuff, and ran it under the kitchen faucet, and even scrubbed it lightly with a green scrubbie, and no ink has come off of it. It makes a perfect sign, as it is much firmer and thicker than paper, and will not wrinkle up when printed with heavy ink. It also does not need to be laminated.

The vinyl is from a company named Papilio. The vinyl Ink Jet sheets can be found at:

I just use Paint or Microsoft Office to make the signs. It dont pay to spend big money on permanent signs for a car your always modifying. In one year, the Showboards sign I had for the Magnum was totally out of date, looked like another car.

Make up the nice signs on your inkjet printer and put them in hard plastic sleeves you can get at an office supply. Then use a cheap $10-$20 wooden easel you can pick up at like Hobby Lobby...paint to match or whatever.

Hey Dave don't forget I can make them to. Here is one I just did. This was a 24"x36" sign board that he made a custom stand for after it was complete. This ran about $150 mounted on 1/8" White PVC

Earl,

If you go with a "big" sign, make sure you measure your trunk first. Just a suggestion.

I guees you need to explain what your looking for a little better.

It's a bit pricy but a bow flag would be original. Works indoors and outdoors.

I would be careful about using something like this. An unexpected gust of wind could knock it down and it could hit your car or the car next to you.

It says it can withstand 63 mph gusts. If it's that windy, it'll need to be taken down anyway.
