Our charging moose is soon to make his appearance on many Volvo-related products. Starting with these: <A HREF="http://www.cafepress.com/takspeed" TARGET="_blank">http://www.cafepress.com/takspeed</A><p><IMG SRC="http://www.takspeed.com/gallery/moose-shield-01.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Please let me know what you think. I'm still tweaking the design a bit...

Re: Say "Hello" to the Takspeed Motorware Moose! (JRL)

Hmm... I am surprised at the reaction. Perhaps I should go with this "anatomically correct" moose instead?<p><IMG SRC="http://www.takspeed.com/gallery/_MG_3942.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Seriously though, I think this moose has attitude though I may be in the minority. When my wife told me she didn't like it cause it scared her I figured it'd be a natural for the gear heads here... This is not the kind of moose you want to meet on a dark highway...<p>

My worry is that it's kinda hard to see from afar. The lines are thin.

I hate to say it but that moose looks like it is um...'assuming the position' and ready to be mounted...
