LET THE COLOR TAKE YOU BACK 50 YEARS: To a time when water decals ruled the windows of station wagons, RVs and pickup trucks. A weird time. A country optimistic to hit the open road and see America, and, stubborn to evolve into a time of equal rights. Always remember that part.

So here’s a blast of color. Enjoy it. We sure do.

We’ve got one hell of a collection of these old stickers. Someday, we’ll get them all into one place on the web. Until then, let the mystery burn deep inside you. And if you see one out there, grab it and send it too the DDC. We’ll reimburse with Field Notes or other DDC merch surprises. Try us. A common occurrence around these parts.

MORE STATE WONDERS: A little set we scanned in a couple years back, and loaded up to the Flickr called, “Vintage State Totem Pole Water Decal Gallery.”

Love the Jamestown, North Dakota sticker. I was there last year on a road trip: they have a wild west amusement park and the world’s largest buffalo, a giant fiberglass SOB up on a hill.
