Hi guys,

Well after 2-3 years or so doing up my dream car its finally coming to a end.. (thankgod).. Im very keen to get the car in car shows, magazines and other stuff like that and am having trouble deciding on which plates to purchase for it. Im hopeless when it comes to things like this. Ive had over 12 months to decide but still it hasnt been done!

A close friend of mine, membername: 'ozzy', mentioned i should get 'XBOXHQ' license plates and a sticker for my back window to advertise our great community to everyone.. The Car will certainly attract attention.. heheh lol

What do you guys think.. At the moment im struggling with picking these plates. Ive put my first choice as number#1 etc etc..

1. XBOXHQ (www.xbox-hq.com)
2. XTSSSE (extasy)
3. TRBOED (turboed)

heres a link to my car before i really started doing most of the work..
You will see i have turboed the car and added all the extras like a xbox etc etc..

Links to my Car:
http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/article559.html (XBOXHQ STORY)

More pics and videos of my car:
http://c64.rulez.org/onslaught/php/c64xbox.php

Any feedback would be cool.. Im need to decide on this in the next day or so..


l8r all

Depends on what you want to advertise man.

If you want to advertise your car, I'd go with the XTSSSE plate, however if you want to promote the site use the XBOXHQ.

It's hard for me to make a final decision too coz I think both would look good, but personally I think the XTSSSE would look better with it (please don't hate me ppl, hehe).

Well if you could get EXTASY or TURBOED then that'd be cool, but out of the three choices there I'd definately go for XBOXHQ... of course then the ladies might think you're a bit of a geek Wink

I agree with DJB. I would choose XTSSSE, then get either a sticker for the back window or a strip in the front widshield that says XBOX-HQ.

i go to car shows alot with my cars and with stickers sometimes placement is everything. i would say put it on the bottom center, but also since u have that wing top center. Or since its a right side drive carput it on and angle on the right top of the rear windsheild. And as for the licence plate i would go with TRBOED.

I own my self a 1990 mustang Gt which puts out around 1100-1200 hp to the fly wheel. ( its somewhere around 980-1000 to the wheels) and a 2003 SVT cobra which was givin to me by my uncle. And that has around 700 rwhp, and im not done with it, i got lots more plans for it. I also just got an eclipse gs-t. Im gonna make it all hot and sell it.

I personally would go with this plate:

GotNOS

But on a serious note, I have 2 cars im working on right now.

1997 GMC Sierra Short Bed Stepside.
Dropped 4 front 6 back with all hotchkis components.
Bunch more stuff, if your interested in more info just let me know, it's currently torn apart and receiving a 383 stroker and a 6 speed out of a camaro. Then it shall be gettting new paint. Right now im boxing in the frame, and doing all of the new fuel lines.

My other project is a 1990 VW Corrado. It's currently apart for all new suspension, and im retrofitting BMW e36 projector headlights on.

http://www.cossettesolutions.com/corrado.JPG

All in all, long story short, I decided to go with "1BadRado" and "1BadGMC" for my license plates, but im sort of a neat freak when it comes to doing things, so everything has to be coordinated, but whatever. Haha.

Just my 10 cents. "1BadXbox" lol. I don't know whare im going with this, i should probably just go to work now huh?

Forahobby,
If you are going to go to car shows, I would agree with the others to use a sticker for XBOXHQ and get one of the others. I like the XTSSSE reference myself. I can relate to working on a car for an extended period of time and once I'm done, I'm sure I would be in XTSSSE too. Very Happy

I say the car will advertise itself...anytime you can get a shameless plug for the site....is worth its weight in gold..

You should get decal girl to get you a window sticker for the back that says:

www.xbox-hq.com

and before the www. and after the .com have two white Xbox logos (white wont fade like green)

That way, when ppl saw the plate, they would put 2 and 2 2gether. Unfortunately, in some parts of the US when ppl put 2 and 2 together they get seven...but, you won't be driving here Wink

PEACE!

Forahobby:


Ive spent the past 7 years oversea's in Japan, Drifting scene, show scene. I my self have personnaly believed what you feel should then it should be. I would do as MODGOD said with the stickr in the back top window myself, but I have always seen great stickers run Diagonally on the sides, or even diagonally across the lower part of the hood. you rplate my friend I truelly feel should be FORAHBY, or something that states your name then the xboxhq sticker. Trully should have the xbox X signature you have(the Block) made up and placed in back window, or even www.xbox-hq.com on rear fender diagonally running up wards.


wish i could find my pics of my ride from OKINAWA, I had 9 in total. 2 RX7, 1 silvia, 1 sileighty, 1 civic, 1 G20, a diamonte with diablo doors(was a jap mob car), a Hachiroku, and a toyo Soarer.

Hi all,

I really had no idea we had so many car fanatics here.. hehehe.
Thats my 2nd hobby after this one.. lol

Thanks for all the feedback and pictures to your cars etc.. Love it..

Id say i will be deciding to put the HQ stick in the back window.. Ill get a very high quality sticker designed and whack her on.. Smile

Im buying a xbox and ripping it apart to INSTALL under the dash of the car.. I already have tv's and dvd players etc like you seen in those links i gave you so im gonna put in a xbox with just a HDD ONLY! So when it boots it will go to media player..

heres what i have finally decided on for my number plates...

XTSSSE is good as my car is a 'NISSAN PULSAR SSS' so XTSSSE suits it
BUT

I have now found this: 'IMPLSV' and i love it.. My car is a pulsar 'pls' and i am impulsive.. lol

l8r guys,

ill attach the license plate mock up.
