    Default How to Spot a Frog

    Many a time i've driven down the road & seen an oncoming froggy... (more than likely a pug!) & wondered if they're an aussie frog!!!

    Now i cant remember everyone's numberplate & if they have a sticker then its normally on the back! Which rules out the "stick head out window & wave profusely" gesture...

    So i'm finkin we should all decide on how & where to put our stickers so we're more noticable!!!

    I'm thinking:
    * Back windshield - Middle top/bottom
    * Front windshield - Passenger side top

    So we can see eachother coming & going!!!

    YAY

    Nice idea .. but being a bit of a stickerphobe (the rego sticker is one too many) putting an Aussiefrog one on the back was a major major step (seeing I already had a 206GTi.net one and had removed all the dealer stickers and number plate surrounds same day of delivery !)

    A couple of times I have tried to wave and toot my horn at other froggies, but forgetting I was in a work Commode, that stalk instead washes the windscreen

    That coud be a means to identify a froggy in a non-frog car if it isn't raining

    We here in Melbourne open the drivers side door and stand on the ledge holding onto the door pillar and wave.... it's really a good method and shows your a little insane.

    So you're the one that's put your overspray of water over my screen as I've driven by?

    Do you know exactly how infuriating that is?

    Some of my colleagues have asked about my "windscreen washing fetish". I try to explain but they just don't get it.

    Well, you will know me if I am in the Pug, I have a sticker on the back, and one at each to pcorner on my windscreen. Also, I am probably the only Frogger who often drives a Ford Transit, and certainly the only one in Tassie with an AF sticker on the back of a Transit!

    Very apt indeed ! Although if your missing the bowl with a Commode, something is SERIOUSLY wrong.

    Would there be interest in aussiefrog number plate surrounds or smallish stickers that would fit on existing numberplate surrounds?

    I'd be up for it GTI... my dealer makes unuf $ without my plate surrounds i'm sure!

    oh & hook it up to a lil switch, so when u press a button the whole number plate changes to a Frog Mooning a red light/traffic camera!!! ha ha haaa

    I'd definately buy 2 AF number plate protectors to suit my slimline Vic plates
    I'm sure mum would also take 2 for her GEETI (205).

    I like the idea of number plate surrounds with a froggy motif..

    but..

    I can see issues coming up with producing number palte surrounds.. how many different sizes are there?? euro plates, standard plates, coloured plates.. all different arent they?

    could be done as a slimline sticker, that covers the regular dealers bit maybe?

    Got my aussiefrogs stickers today, stuck one on the back window of the pug immediately. Eucalytus oil works wonders in removing old car dealer sticker.
