It's anybody's business how they spend their money, but holy cow, I parked next to one of these yesterday and it said "SHELBY" in ELEVEN places, just on the exterior.

Sad thing was, it would have been a cool truck with the 700hp Coyote and the lift, if it had just not been kitted out with all the garish doo-dads, scoops, stripes, and tacked-on logos. Funny how the Shelby shown below didn't need all that junk to be noticed as something special.

Carroll started whoring out his name a long time ago.
Remember the Dodge Omni?? Or the Mustang II?

The "GLH"?? Lol. Yeah, I remember. I just don't see why anybody these days would want the name a dozen times on their pickup.....

Dang it, I missed counting the wheels and the center caps. Nineteen logos on the exterior.

I worked for a guy who was consumed with his “brand” one top of the line item we made had his logo on it 13 times. This item was slightly bigger than a breadbox.

"Branding" can really be something at times. Like seeing the guy's "Corvette" front license plate, with a "Corvette"-embossed plate frame, right under the "Corvette" logo on the actual car. Pretty sure most of us could identify the model of the vehicle from 600 yards anyway.

That way you know what the fu ck it is when you have to pull them out of the snow drift in the winter time. Not for me. I'll take my old Tundra any day of the week and twice on sunday, while they are working on their POS mine keeps on a going..

The truck doesn't do anything for me, but the roadster looks awfully familiar...

That’s cool. If you had 17 more on there, it might be a little over the top.

Not just the car makers. Have you ever looked at a new car on a lot and saw the dealers sticker on the back? Has a dealer ever offered to pay you to have his advertising on your brand new truck?

That's exactly right. First things I peel off my vehicles.

I have thought the same thing…I have the dealer remove their decals before I pick up a vehicle.
