Magnetic bumper sticker
Owned since 1971, now driven over 242,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

Are they available for purchase?  No car should pass tech without one.  8)

These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road

Won't work on today's Shelbys.  Due to the magnetic nature of the product and well, the nature of the substances used on current Shelby bumpers.  Just sayin'....
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Super glue will work.  Should never be removed.

All one needs to do is go back into the Snake Bite bulletins and drag out some of "his" ads.
Of course there was the ring toss game at Dearborn or the time a member sent him a hooker in Vegas.
But then there is the fact that the retired Director of the Coast Guard Academy band gets sea sick.
One time when Kopec's and Pardee were visiting us for dinner the blender died. We sent our 7 year old daughter with Howard to the in-laws house 3 blocks away to borrow their blender. They got lost and after 10 minutes the mother in law was on the phone wondering where they were. Kopec explained that Howard had been completely cleared of those charges. When they got to the the mother in law's she yanked her grand daughter inside and slammed the door in his face. It took a lot of pleading and a couple more phone calls to get it straightened out. Our daughter pleading gram "it's just Howard they always pick on him" fell on deaf ears.
Bottom line nobody loves these cars and their owners more than Howard.
