I don't know much about motorized vehicles (other than starting them), but this had to have cost a few thousand dollars, right?

Are those Buckeye Leave stickers painted on, or are they actual stickers?

Did this person do this to all their cars? If not, must I think less of them as a fan?

Just some questions I have after looking over this tweet:

Do you know the crazed (assumed) millionaire behind this whip? Are you the crazed (assumed) millionaire behind this whip? Email me.

NOT NOW, DJ. THE SITE IS CRASHING AND WE'RE PANICKING DOWN HERE IN THE COMMENT SECTION WITHOUT BRAXTON.

I scheduled this piece for 1:45 because we're re-arranging some preview work due to Braxton's injury. I was standing in a Chipotle line when Braxton news broke, looked at the clock and said "ah hell."

I was able to catch a glimpse of his hand and pocketwatch while conducting an independent investigation.

I asked Braxton how his knee was before halftime at Berkeley and he said, "What up, man."

I did this to my car with magnets.  There are websites where you can make your own magnets, I made on of the "buckeye stripe" and cut it to fit my car.  You can buy the leaf magnets anywhere on Lane on gameday.

Isn't that just Archie's truck from the Nissan Heisman House?

Does anyone know if BucksFan changed his icon?

Eddie and Troy both had trucks like this in the Heisman House commercial - Eddie had more buckeye leafs though!

On review - that IS the truck from the commercial, I think it is a still.  Doubt it was seen in the wild, just repurposed commercial footage.

Hope he doesn't live in scUM territory.

A couple of the leaves are covering the seams of the hood above the right front tire, so I'm thinking actual stickers.  Seems like it'd be hard to open the hood, but between proper helmet stickering and oil changes, I think the priorities are right.

That truck has to belong to the guy that has this basement:

You're not fooling anyone by saying that stuff belongs to your wife.  We all know you live alone.  

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I'm pretty sure I saw this guy last night. If it was the buckeye leaves are stickers. He was wearing an Ohio State Jersey and TOSU hat.

What's TOSU?

Nice truck it would be a lot cooler if Braxton was driving it with a medically cleared shoulder with his Heisman trophy and the NC trophy riding shotgun

Are those Helmet Stickers earned by running over Wolverine road-kill?

I want I want I want I want.  That room is sick too.  If I could, I would decorate everything I look at in life in buckeye garb...with some motorcycles and cars mixed in somewhere.

A lady I used to work with had a VW bug with a stripe down the middle and all the buckeye leaf stickers all over it.  Kinda made it look like a helmet driving down the highway.

This is literally a still of the heisman house commercial linked earlier in the thread. That being said, I do want one.

GO BUCKS

Not a Beetle fan but with the shape of the car this one works really well.

Also, I do recall now the truck from the commercial and I would take one.

Is that a factory paint job?

If that Beetle is the one from Oregon, OH it is worth noting that it also has a place of honor in a dedicated man-cave style garage.  I followed it home once and saw the garage with a red leather couch and a big screen over the car!
