I'm looking to replace the "Merrick's Matchbox" On my windshield. Figured i would ask and see if i can send my business to a forum member and maybe get it done right this time.

I used to own the car. Had no choice but to sell it. Well... recently got it back BUT... lettering is all gone. If you own a fiero and can get the measurements that would be fantastic! If not, tell me what you need. Be creative. I like cursive and love calligraphy! Here's a (crappy) pic of the original. The car is getting painted a candy apple red or candy apple red metallic come spring time. I would like it to fill to the legal "AV1" line on the windshield.

ChopinScript seems to looks nice. Just can't seem to bold it in photoshop. I can send the font if need be. Or similar is fine.

I can do this for you. I used to sell the outlined version of the "Pontiac" logo. I just need to find my old file to get the proper windshield curve measurements.

So unfortunately i need to scrap the cursive or calligraphy idea. My son (Merrick) doesn't like it. "too hard for me to read". so... i need help!

Anybody know a good font that might look good on a fiero windshield?

Why not use the “GOODTIMES” font as it closely replicates the “PONTIAC” advertising lettering. Or the "HEMI HEAD 462" font as it closely replicates the “FIERO” advertising lettering.
