Just so this forum will not be entirely stagnant:

I had one car cover stolen, so I'm hoping this newer one will not be so attractive to your standard, thoughtful thief.

"TRLNGWA" is my personalized license plate; the characters signify "Vital Force" and "Hare/Rabbit". You could read it as "Power of the Bunny". I'm looking for the character for "Fear", to place in front of the first one.

Hey Frank,

Drifting is a form of Japanese auto racing involving sliding your race car around the turns of a race course without spinning out. Involves rear-wheel drive cars and has expanded beyond the land of the rising sun. In fact Vaughn Gittin Jr. (among others) races a Monster Energy Drink sponsored pimped out Ford Mustang on the international drift race circuit, you can check him out on Youtube or at his website. Makes me wonder how a Terlingua would do in this style of racing......????

Aha!

Looks like fun. Anything that extends the Mustang - or any automotive appliance - to the edge of the envelope can't be all bad.

Now I'm just missing the "JDM" link: looks like pure Americana to me.

That's where the Japanese characters come in on the back of your car cover......it would be right at home in the Japanese Domestic

Here's the rear of the cover with three symbols: Fear, Vital Force, Hare/Rabbit.
"Fear the power of the Bunny"!

Posted Image

Now it looks to me as if it could use a fourth symbol at the right side, to balance the direct-view aspect.
Any suggestions?

For example: "Fear the Power of the Bunny; So Be It!"

Missed your chance: I looked at words like Rapid, Quick, Violent, Beautiful, but the one that seemed to fit best was Society/Club.

So, there you have it: Fear, Vital Force, Hare/Rabbit, Society/Club.

"Fear (the Power of) the Bunny" Club.
