I have a Lot 3 parking tag on my rear view mirror for ATL.

Other than that, I try not to let people know I work in the aviation industry. :)

I have a mock refueling receptacle in the hood, electroluminescent formation strips on the sides, and black and yellow ejection handles mounted on the headrests. There's also a "Jet-A only" decal from Sporty's around the fuel door and an authentic F4 Phantom stick grip on the shifter.

;)

Actually, just a worker-bee parking permit on the mirror.

What a perfect setup for a revist to the "Mother of all Ricers" car from months past!

Who could forget that student pilots car that had all those stickers on the back, airplane hanging from the mirror, instrument "coasters" attached to the steering wheel, and cut outs of a GPS to place over the radio???

I have the FAA books-of-the-week scattered along the back seat, behind heavily tinted windows.

The airport parking permit tags are on the bumper. I had a nice collection of 30 monthly tags on the rearview mirror until tthe airport went to yearly tags.

"Passenger Eject" and "Missle Fire" sit next to "Horn" and "Wipers" on my touchpad console. I can't get the local CAF to release some gattling guns or even a flame-thrower.

Meal wrappers and empty coffee cups fill the passenger seat floor, emptied once a week.

The trunk contains the most important things in my life, the headset and the flight bag, everything else is just 'stuff'. There's also enough aviation-related tools and liquids to require a hazmat sticker.

Finally, if you lean close to the paint, you can see the rock chips from hundreds of engine starts on the other side of the fence. If you dare breathe around it, you'll catch jet a mixed with 100LL.

Other than that it looks and drives like a cop car.

Fly SAFE!

I have my headset and logbook in the car, but only when I am driving to or from the airport.

Parking pass, IBAC badge, some freebie foam earplugs from somewhere, a 135 manual from a company that's out of business, a paycheck that bounced from a company that isn't, 4 live rounds for a Colt .45 Automatic, 7 spent rounds from an AR-15, 73 AA batteries (all dead) from the headset, 1 mostly empty bottle of Jose Cuervo Especial, 1 expired North Atlantic Chart, 2 current issues of Wind Surfing Magazine, 1 pair of nearly new t-back panties (not my size,) and the Top Gun soundtrack (digitally remastered.) But that's just the Aviation related stuff...

I have my employee parking pass wedged on the drivers side dash. It's about 3"x5" so it's fairly discreet. I also have my log book in my backseat, but it's buried under a bunch of crap so you can't see it. Also, I think I have a pair of earplugs, also buried under a bunch of crap so you can't see it. I also have a work T-Shirt in my front seat, but when it's there, it's usually crumpled up and inside out so nobody knows what it is. I, too, no longer make it obvious that I make a living in aviation :)

Other than one each ancient totally unreadable (circa 1989) AOPA sticker on the rear window, nada.

What I am interested in is how many people have done "aviation" kind of things while driving their cars, for instance;

Gas pedal "pressure" was a bit much so I reach for the non-existent trim wheel to "trim the pressure out"

Start "scanning" the instruments as I start my "climbout" on the highway on ramp.

Reach for the non-existent fuel selector levers on the ceiling (Caravan fuel lever location) because after all I have been on that tank for a while I should change to the other.

Start groping the right side of the driver's seat for the seat back, horizontal and vertical adjustment.

I have probably have driven close to 1,000,000 miles. Now I spend more time flying than I do driving.
