    It seems we have a new trend with people and their sigs.

    Either they are listing their present cars as well all the cars they sold or traded in or they are listing their parents cars, brothers cars, sisters cars, aunts cars, milkmans car, etc.

    And if it isnt that, their sigs are 40 lines line with quotes from other posters that are often out of context or just not requiring repeating!

    Tell me what is right for a sig!!

    3-4-5 lines of what ever...

    were on an SVT board, I dont care if you have a freightliner or a GM something or other etc.

    past/sold cars is the lamest thing ever.

    I know this sounds like a dumb question, but when did Piper's recently become a car??? Haha GOTCHA! Just kidding. Nice plane though! :thumbsup: Do you commute with it or is it a hobby?? Also, what's the upkeep and costs? I'm thinking of getting one for a weekend traveler.

    The best signatures are 1 liners. Since you know, its a signature and everything...

    If you have more than 12 total lines in your signature, you are about at the limit. Of course a couple more or less isn't a big deal, but if you have 25+ lines you really need to cut it down a bit.

    Everyone has different opinions, but to me the perfect signature is one with maybe a small picture and a link to a page containing all the information about you or your vehicle(s).
