Smile The Honda Block Mobile!

No, I don't own it, just designed it. Wouldn't buy one, cheap and ugly, but it's not everyday you get to drive around your own designed piece of artwork.

To explain quickly....I work for CBS 19 and UPN 43 in Cleveland, OH. They decided for our younger, hipper station on UPN to lease/rent/work-in-trade with a Honda dealer called Sunnyside Honda to get a Honda Element and deck it out for our young on air personalities to cart it around on shoots.

Like I said, dislike the vehicle, but I think the wrap came out really sharp. Just thought I'd share a couple photos of her day at home with me! (Yes, while my baby sleeps in a cold downtown parking garage :( )

Whad'ya guys think? Anyone willing to pay for me to design them an Intrepid wrap?! Hehe! I have thought about doing it, just not sure what kind of design....

Who you smilin' at?

Those are brutally ugly trucks...saw one the other day driving around, and I though the Pontiac Aztec is ugly but those things might top it.

Good job on the wrap...it does make that thing look a little better...nice design.

if you were going for the outrageously weird smiley face look, then the graffix look great!! Put me on the list, just no smileys...

Funny thing, as I was stuck in highway traffic taking it home yesterday, I heard the same things said, How "boxy & ugly" it looks normally but that with the wrap it looked a lot nicer. It was strange to have rigs pull up, tooting their air horns to get your attention and talk to you about it.

OK, you're on the list when ever you need a wrap! Seriously, talk about having a chick magnet (or dude for the ladies! :p). I tried to check out evryone else on the road to see who was looking at this vehicle, at least 75% of who I could visably see were looking back at me! Kinda freaky at times. We could definately work on something without a smiley face!

I was told during my chats that in Cali, companys will pay you monthly to advertise on your car. Is this true? I'd do it for money, could be paying my car payments just to put a logo on it!

I will say there were two things I did like about this vehicle (only these two):

1) The shifter was on the consule under the radio and heating/AC controls facing out at you, very easy to reach and shift.

2) The driver side power window one touch feature. This I have in my car but only in the down poistion. This had the one touch feature for the window to go up too! Very cool!

Thanks all for the compliments by the way!
