Today took the ATS to Oahu's east shore and took couple of pictures. They are mostly ocean view or mountain view. Next week, or maybe tomorrow, will head to the jungles and will took more pictures.

I know! :D That is why I liked this photo! The sun was on my left shoulder when I took this picture, and it was around 7PM. So the light contrast created this illusion! :p

What's the bumper sticker for? It doesn't seem like you got it to ruin your car :)

It is Hawaii's safety sticker! In Hawaii cars annually need to be inspected for safety, and a safety sticker is issued which needs to be pasted on the bumper! The dealership itself has all brand new cars inspected. So that sticker was there when I picked up my brand new ATS!

When I shipped my STS to Hawaii, I installed a small mount to the bottom of the bumper, and pasted the sticker on the mount rather than the bumper itself, and it seems that cops are OK with that! This is a pic of my old STS. Sorry, I don't have any closer pic of the mount. If you look closely, you will see a small mount near to the right exhaust tip.

I see you are a registered Democrat. I know because your plate number is Photoshopped out. I heard the NSA has an automated system that restores obscured plates in internet pictures of Republican's cars. ;)





That was a joke not a political statement. It's not my fault our government is the greatest straight man of all time.

The first photo always catches my mind as a clue to what an ATS convertible would look like.

Aloha from NJ. And I hated that sticker, but most will buy the bracket for it and it can be mounted nicely to avoid it looking pretty bad on the bumper.

Yes, I it looks terrible. But it was already on the brand new car when I took the delivery! I had one of those brackets on my previous STS. Did you use to live on the island?

I would try and get it remounted and pay the $30 for a new sticker. IMO

I was on the island a few years. Lived over in Aiea area. Loved it but had to go, only so much a city guy can do on an island. Miss it most during these winters though.

Yes, sometimes I forget that there are seasons other than spring and summer! I am going to register the car again in this spring. I will use a mount then.
