I generally don't like letter like that because we all know its a chevy/ford/corvette/escort or whatever. It does look ok beyond all that...

I agree with Gas Man, everyone knows what a 'vette looks like. I think it also takes away from the stylish look of the car. My vote would be to "lose it!"

I like it. I never had one on my Vette, but I like the look of it.

i like it too. i have a 4runner and i put a tribal toyota logo on the front windshield. it sets it apart from all the others out there. i say keep it.

when you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?

Looks good from here! I've seen some vettes abt town w/ similar lettering & the ones driving ain't spring chickens. Those are usually the picky types too. Ur the one driving it. If u like it, keep it. If u don't, then put it in the circular file.

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

I think it looks fine, but it's completely up to you. I liked one guy's idea better though. He had "Move right" written in reverse on his windshield so that it could be seen when someone looked in their rear view mirror.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...

Not a big Chevy or Vette fan at all but I think it adds a nice little touch to the car.. I don't think it is tacky at all.. I like the "Move Right" idea also.. My friend had a custom plate on his Bronco it said "EMWOLB" - read it backwards.. lol.. He put it on the front of his Bronco.. very nice...
