Car Mailboxes – For the Vehicle Connoisseur!
A car mailbox is the perfect gift for someone who loves cars. Car mailboxes are popping up on homeowner’s lawns all over the country.
These customized mailboxes are a miniature recreation of antique or NASCAR vehicles. Die hard racing fans now have a novelty mailbox which reflects their beloved hobby. How cool would it be to have a mail box with Kurt Busch or Jeff Gordon’s car on it?
Many car novelty mailboxes are designed around a postmaster approved standard T1 size mailbox. These mailboxes are regulation size with the vehicle-mounted on top. Some feature the vehicle built around the body of the mailbox. Many of the models have a “cutesy” design or cartoon look. For a more authentic looking mailbox, try one that is custom made. Several online merchants will create a custom made mailbox where the artist will design and build a novelty mailbox to your specifications or based on the specifications of your favorite racecar or antique automobile. Most are made from the standard size mailbox but can also be created using an oversize box.
When choosing mailbox posts, try to select one that strong, durable, and will complement your mailbox. Nothing spoils a great looking mailbox that a plain, non-descript post! A molded plastic post can be shaped and painted into almost any design and incorporated in many different themes. Plastic posts are strong and durable and will outlast just about any wood or metal post. For an oversize mailbox, an aluminum post is needed to support the extra weight.
Best of all, a car novelty mailbox makes the perfect gift for any occasion and can be purchased online from many different retailers.
