Default 50th National Corvette Caravan windshield decals

It has been a little over 2 years since we went on the 50th National Corvette Caravan event for the Corvettes 50th birthday. Those of us who participated received a windshield decal. How is yours holding up? Mine is starting to fade quite a bit.

Right before departing on the caravan:

And a month or so ago:

Mine is holding up well, but then again it sits in the garage a lot, and if I drive it to work, I have inside parking there.

Mine looks as good as the day I put it on, but I only drive my car about 2-3 times a month sets in a garage most of the time.

I'm still displaying my proudly. Still looks good as I have garaged parking at work and at home.

It's funny you should post this now. I just removed mine this past weekend. It was so faded and I needed to make room for a newer club decal. I still have another one as two of us registered and I may put it on, not sure yet. What a great time that was and look forward to the 2008 caravan.

I pulled mine out of the envelope and checked it, it still looks brand new!

Mine is still in great shape, but the car was always garaged and in WA there is only 3 1/2 days when the sun is out and because the decal is inside the car, the rain couldn't was the color away...

It would be nice to find out if the NCM could get replacements for the people whe registered for the Caravan. I would thing that the registration records are still around so they could limit who gets them. I'd even pay for a replacement decal.

The large rear window decal still looks like new, but the small one started fading quickly. Right now it is in one of those thin plastic frames that you slip photos in. It will fit in with a display of dash plaques--if I ever do one.

Mine looks just like it did the day I got it. Of course, I put it in a frame and hung it on my garage wall.

My Vette is in the garage most of the time, but the decal isn't holding up well from the Texas sun. Have another new one with my other 50th memorabilia.
