So who likes vintage decals?

Well I started collecting old decal images a few months ago. Long story short I now have a bunch of cool old school decals for my truck

I would love to see your pics if you have any rare or cool old decals.

I'm really on the lookout for a old
Portland Rose City speedway decal when they hosted the winston cup races, we used to go there an watch the races when I was a kid.

It's funny you should bring up the subject!

I recently did a decal search of my own, for a project I am involved in. The theme is for a "speed shop delivery truck, and part time weekend racer". :-)

So far I have roughed out the body and done some of the interior body. That included painting in some cracked, chipped, and worn decals from the sixties.

The outer body paint and decals will be far more deteriorated, as would naturally occur. We are trying to use decals for products that would still be remembered by many.

It will be back for exterior paint real soon, and I do need to correct a crooked letter in the Jahn's Pistons decal. I was sooo busy with the overall look of it, that I didn't notice the "s" until I was looking at photos. {:-(

I also love old decals

I have collected thousands of old decals over the years.

13 years ago I started Nostalgic Racing Decals which started out as just a hobby but turned into a full time business along the way.

I am a graphics designer but my main interest is in recreating old decals from the past.

I also do a great deal of custom work for car restoration shops both in the USA and in Australia.

I also do all of the contingency size drag racing decals for restoration projects.

You posted Take a look at CoupeCustoms.com

I would advise everyone to take a good hard ook at Coupe Customs before making any purchase.

The person who owns Coupe Customs is Nathan Copper who is the same person that ran the "Old Fords Parts Mining Company" in Chandler, Az.

He used to purchase his decals from me back around 2005 but each time I shipped him his order he would contact me and say they never arrived. I reshipped the order a few times before I was contacted by phone one day by another vendor.

He asked me if I did business with Nathan and I said yes and that's when he told me he had been doing the exact same thing to him other vendors who were selling to him. He was ripping off everyone including his own customers who bought from him.

Please do not take my word for this simply do a Google search using his name or his companies names which have been the following,

Old Parts Mining Company, Porky's Truck Stop and now Coup Customs.

This guy has been ripping off hot rod guy's for the last 10 to 15 years and yet keeps changing the name of his business and seems to be getting away with it.

Please check him out before you make any purchase from him.

I lost a great deal of money and I hate to see this happen to anyone else.

Just a word to the wise. Jim Hill

Figured out the bottom one, it's a International Show Car Association decal.
Figured out the top one, Performance Ford Club of America.

Thanks for the heads up.
Looked on "that site that members here keep getting banned from"

Seems there were a LOT of folks who were making all sorts of empty threats to make themselves feel all manly and macho. Lotsa guys making empty noises about going and knocking his door, etc.

Seems that he's still around, seems to be still doing the same stuff. Must be pretty safe to annoy folks on that site as there doesn't seem to be any real repercussions!

Just sayin'
