From our source for Audiworld and VWvortex, we could get them, but it'll cost a little bit more than we have budgeted for accessories right now. I'd like to have them made, and we might do it over the winter, but right now we just dumped our budget into VWvortex shirts, hats etc. for the biggest VW show of the summer.

Puting a german car before a swedish is really pushing the envelop mister! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>-Poritz

<IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> Yeah, sorry about that. We're still on a fairly limited budget so I do what I can. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>I just ordered a dozen more hats. These new ones will be bungee fitted and I'll make sure to put them up on the site when I get them.

Thanks for the compliment. I too like the idea of clear plate covers. But I just had another earthshaking idea. How about having those plastic plates that go in place of a front plate. Similar to those that those NASCAR enthusiasts put on the front of their cars (well trucks generally in their case)that say Jeff Gordon, but they have the swedespeed logo on them. What do you think of that? I hope I explained it well. I want a response, please post your sentiments. The bigger the response here the more reason our dear friend George has to sell it.<P>-Poritz

Great idea of license plate replacements for the front...downside for me here in Canada, is that the front plate is a must, and faces something like a $105 ticket for not having. If the choice was ava, I would have nothing on the front....nice and clean.<BR>

Just keep in mind that almost no license plate frames fit the rear of a 244. It has to be thin to get between the plate and the lights above it, and even then it's a tight fit.<P>I don't really care, however, since no frame would fit the rear of my car with the decor panel. I even had to bend the top of my license plate just to make it fit! I'd definitely put one on the front to save myself from gashing my shin open on the edges of the plate.<P>

Yeah a clean looking frame would be nice.<P>Any ideas on slogans? Or would there be one? Is there already one?<P>Sport Compact Car Magazine's plate holder says:<BR>"Let The Ass Kickin Begin"<P>That might be a little aggressive, but something along those lines!?<P>-RR<BR>

Well I come back several days later and am pleased to see that one of my posts has survived. People seem interested.<P>George, you knew exactly the design that I was thinking about eventhough I really never described it.<P>By the way that t-shirt idea sounds fantastic ijahman! Would definately buy one provided it would not be too expensive.<P>-Poritz

michael's right on the 240's its really hard to fit them in, maybe you could make the type that just go around the edges, like when you by a new car from the dealer it has the name of the dealer on a black suround. there cheaper than the full cover type ones..<P>michael.<P>

JUST like that...PERFECT!<P>It'd be good to have the part that says swedespeed down below like that, because I think that the renewal sticker locations vary from state to state, country to country, so you couldn't really have a one-size-fits-all plate-frame thingie with the swedespeed font/logo "inside" the rectangle of the license plate. I could be wrong. <P>I didn't realize this thread was here, or I'd have put my plate-frame comments (currently over in the "decals" thread) here, instead. Regardless...cool photo-fudging, and <I>nice</I> Volvo.<p>[This message has been edited by Lisa62 (edited 07-13-2002).]

I will be at Waterfest in the Vortex booth. So ask for me. I won't have T-shirts (yet) for Swedespeed, but I did make new hats. These are much better, but a little more expensive to make. They are yellow Yupong bungee caps. Great shaped cotton baseball hat that looks fitted, but is one size fits all.<P>They have the blue yellow icon on the front and the swedepseed logo in color on the back. I'll try to remember to throw them in the box of Vortex stuff we're taking up there.<P>We'll have plenty of Vortex stuff. We put all of our money into that (and a dozen Swedespeed hats) for Waterfest. I'll try to get pics of the SS hats and decals up today in one area so you guys can see them.<P>I don't have the Vortex plate frames yet, but they should be 50 state legal. They'll be sweet, trust me, as the source is the same one we got our Audiworld frames from, and they brushed aluminum lettering on those looks great (moulded letters in the plastic also, really top notch).
