Don - go to a local sign store and get a set of magnetic numbers. Or look online for removeable race numbers (magnetic or static). A lot of the autocross guys use them. I made myself a set of the magnetic ones for autocrossing.

Wait..114 in the 1/4...make sure to give them a test run before you get to the track. I'm not sure what the speed rating is on the magnets!!

Actually, you're not allowed to use magnetic signs at the tracks here. I've seen guys use the static decals for numbers on windows... been thinking about trying those. For the car number at least.

I remember back in the 80s and my mom's 1984 Datsun-Nissan Maxima where she had her first name (Vera) in fancy cursive graphic letters above the driver's door handle.

I never understood why her name was put on the car...nor did I dare ask.

For Play: 2011 Ford Mustang v6 Premium Coupe w/Pony Package. Stock...for now.

For Work: 2011 Hyundai Sonata SE. The fun daily driver.

sounds cool, but be prepared to walk out to your car at the grocery store and have a bunch of little kids on skateboards saying, "Sweet Ride Seth."

To each is own. My take, have it as a removable sticker as some Stangers have suggested on the lower portion of your window.

Additional benefit ---you can claim "plausible deniability" when you wife says she saw you wasting someone on the street or with the guys out on the town
