Great sign and I like how you processed this. I would have cropped out the bottom left corner and I would have eliminated the black border. whe I first looked at the car I didn't like the roof but the more I look at it the more it fits the image.

LOL! Excellent capture. Nice conversion, too. IMNSHO, could have stronger blacks.
