So I have a nice little blue car that I am going to turn into a playoff car for this year and I am looking for ideas and suggestions of how to jazz it up.

Currently its just plain blue.....luckily it's already Canucks blue.

Keep in mind I still have to be legally allowed to drive the car and need to do so safely ( i.e. nothing that covers my lines of sight) :P

Also if anyone has pictures of old playoff cars from the past, post them up so we can look for more ideas

Cheers All!

Since you say your car is all blue, turn into something like this?

A big paper mache Stanley cup in the passenger seat would be cool.

As godly as that once horrific vehicle known as a Pontiac is, that looks like an expensive paint job that isn't easily dismantled after playoffs. This is my everyday car.

if you don't want to paint head down to a print shop (there's lots around Granville Island) and see if you can get some green/white stripes or canucks logos printed on large format vinyl stickers.

Vinyl stickers are weather resistant and will peel off with soap,water and elbow grease after the playoffs are done.

You don't need paint, just a bunch of decals.

Step 1) Acquire a life size Brad Marchand doll.

Step 2) Ensure head is securely fastened under hood, with rest of body fastened to grille.

Step 3) Enjoy the accolades of a province wherever you should go.

What's wrong with driving a Canucks car all year long?

Get a paint job!

These are for the wrong team, of course, but this is a car we saw on the roadside on our 2004 trip to Newfoundland. They've probably got rid of it now, after all the embarrassment of missing the playoffs these past few years. :D

Yeah well, that's okay. I'm a Canucks fan; just wanted to show what some fans do. I believe this car went on many road trips that year. Crappy team, but the fans had fun with it.

Cars are not my thing normally, but I gotta say that one works for me. ::D



But, as mentioned above, that is an expensive paint job well out of the reach of the vast majority of us. For us regular people, I would think using magnetic and/or window clingies would be the best cheap, easily reversed option for "Canucking" up your ride. (And bad mojo to anyone who would steal them off your car!) London Drugs has lots and some of them are on the large-ish side. You could also get that "snow" stuff people use on windows at Christmas to write stuff on your car.

Thanks for the memories, Luo! :'(

Like others said, large removable decals, remember seing a car with a huge Luongo head on the doors before ... what about those lights you attach 'under' your car in green , also there are small battery operated xmas type lights I've seen those in cars before, maybe MIchaels .... large inflatable whale attached to roof , large flag attached to hockey stick, cheering 'pom poms' in green and blue attached also paint like used for window art can do all kinds of designs , even players names on car that'll wash off

I should change my name now that Sakic has retired but I'm too lazy ..... he was the only reason for the avs part .... goodbye and good luck Burnaby Joe !

If you got a little extra scratch, there's some cool stuff in the NHL store that might work.

auto accessories pack
http://shop.canada.n...oductId=3840721

12" logo car magnet
http://shop.canada.n...oductId=3746846

car flag (though you could probably get it cheaper elsewhere)
http://shop.canada.n...oductId=3789910

peel & stick removable wall logos (not positive they'd work on a car...)
http://shop.canada.n...ductId=11685583
http://shop.canada.n...ductId=11685610

Did you know they also have extra tire covers, hitch covers, and floor mats for your car? Almost want a car now...
Go, Canucks, Go!
Every single one of them.

Thanks for the memories, Luo! :'(
