I have a very old political bumper sticker I'd like to affix to my car. (I think the idea of a Prius driving around with a "NIXON/AGNEW" sticker on it is pretty funny.) Unfortunately, the original adhesive has long since lost its stick, and I'd like to affix it in a way that is a) semi-permanent, and b) won't hurt the finish. Any suggestions?

Is there a way I can get my front license plate on my 97 Honda Civic without using a power drill or going to a mechanic and having him take the bumper off/drill it on? [more inside]

I drive slowly on our rural roads because of wildlife and people, but this makes other drivers impatient. Should I consider a bumper sticker to acknowledge and explain my behavior, or just try to deal with it? Note: speeding up like a 'normal person', and plowing through baby deer and kids learning to ride bikes, is not an option. [more inside]

Or rather, don't tread on me and my yellow & black flag! They're yellow rectangles with a black line drawing of a coiled snake, and the logo "Don't tread on me". Who or what do they represent? [more inside]

What is the Best Bumper Protection device? I have a new car and live in the city where I have to parallel park on side street (unmarked spaces) daily. My car is white. Every white car I see in the city has black scuff marks on the rear bumper from parking. I have seen ads for Bumper Bully and Parking Armor. There are others as well. Does anyone have experience with any of these? [more inside]

On Friday morning I was in what I consider to be a no-fault fender bender, but Illinois isn't a no-fault state. The other party has already contacted my insurance; I'm not sure what I should be doing to best protect myself. Details inside. [more inside]

I'm trying to read Duncan's essay,"What Fundamentalists Need for Their Salvation". Now I 'd like to know about three phrases that he writes in it, " ....plaster our cars with bumper stickers that say 1,2, and 3, and leave it at that."
1) Mean People Suck
2) No Billionaire Left Behind
3) Who would Jesus Bomb?
Are all the phrases popular? What do you want to say by plastering your cars with them?Does it show that you are a cool onlooker or something? I have no idea.

For school, we are required to have this bumper sticker on either our back bumpers or back windshield. I am highly anti-bumper sticker, so I have not even considered placing the sticker on my bumper, thats out of the question. Is there an "easy" way or method or trick to place the sticker on the inside of my back windshield that can be easily removed?

What does the bumper sticker depicting something akin to a deer-crossing sign mean? The sticker looks like a deer-crossing sign except that instead of a deer, some other deer-like animal is depicted (springbox? ibex? impala?). I have seen the sticker with regularity on cars in eastern states.

I frequently see bumper stickers that say "De Colores," which I only know as the name of a Raffi song (from my son's toddler days).
The other one I wonder about says "SVEIKS!"

How difficult is it to get bumper stickers off cars? Are there any tricks? Do the stickers get more difficult to remove the longer they stay on?
I just bought a new car and am considering putting a low-key sticker on for a cause I support. However, I've never put a bumper sticker on a car before, nor have I had to remove one, so my decision on whether or not to do it will depend on how difficult it might be to remove it later.
