Are those not allowed, or what?

The car going to viewer left, while positioned at the left edge, is making use of an old trick in paint, print and movies: it creates tension in the viewer. Alfred Hitchcock was good at it. Notice all the B movies and splatter movies make use of it. You always have lots of useless screen on whichever side the unsuspecting victim is ~not~ travelling and you know the psycho with the ungrounded electric weedwhacker is lurking just out of sight in the sliver of screen toward which the victim ~is~ going.

Toward what unknown, unseen horror is that young rodder rushing? We see where he's been, but the edge of the screen is either a wall or a cliff.

Why does it have to be integrated? Check the logo. The text is not part of the garage, the car nor the tools.

If you had a garage, you could logically use the text as a sign on the roof or wall or door. Maybe a kid bent over pushing a relic in one end of the garage, the sign on the side, and the finished rod coming out the other side. I think it would be a bit too heavy on the graphics, but as I said before, I'm not the target. (As it is, I think the car is still a bit too large).
