Mustang Artwork for Auto Trailer
Am looking for a Mustang Logo or similar artwork for my auto trailer tail gate. Had one of the large MCA logo decals. but it got vandalized and looks terrible. The MCA store does not seem to carry the trailer decal anymore.

I was going to put a mustang logo on our trailer but decided that it was better not to advertize what might be in the trailer. Just a thought. Marty

Sides of trailer and forward door have Mustang artwork (no MCA logo) and were not vandalized. I take precautions, when I have the trailer loaded (like using high security locks on trailer doors. locking the trailer to the tow vehicle and a locked chain through the trailer wheels) in addition to having both Mustang and trailer fully insured. I was more concerned when I had the open trailer with the car exposed to everything (hail, road debris, vandals, etc.). Have had very positive responses from other drivers on the road (they seem to be more courteous and helpful).

So now I looking for some appropriate 20-30 inch running horse (mustang) artwork.

A few years back some MCA folks were on there way to a National show and stoped for the night . When they got up they found the truck, trailer and car gone. The truck was soon recovered but as far as I know the trailer and car were not.
If you can get a digital image of the MCA logo and take it to a sign store they can make a vinyl one all most any size. Marty

I had heard that story before I started trailering; thus the the chaining of the trailer tires and insurance. Ultimately locks and chains will not stop a determined thief, but their use will not make it easy for the thief.
My concern about copyrights is the reason I haven't done your suggestion. Additionally, I thought there might be some other running horses or other mustang artwork that I want to use. If I find the right artwork then I could use smaller MCA and AACA logos to shown my membership to those organizations.

Found my trailer decal at www.universaldecals.com (the mustang_horses_decal). The size can be varied, which will suit my needs.
