    Alright so you know how they have these 'wraps' for cars? Well you can custom design those things and they are generally between 1500-3000 to wrap a car up.

    I'm in the market to get another car within the next few months but I'd rather try to have people pay me to drive around in an ad-wrapped-car.

    What do you think the best way to go about doing something like that is? Or is the weed I smoked way too fucking awesome for my own good?

    What kind of fire did you have? I just blew a blunt of some OG kush to the face. ~1g. LOVELY!!

    Anyway, you could come up with a template and approach businesses by e-mail/direct mail.

    Yeah I don't know why anyone would give a free car away. I would guess your best bet is to ask the company you work for, or start your own company and buy yourself one

    Aghhhh I didn't mean to market the idea as people buying me a new car.

    I meant I would raise capital via selling adspace on the wrapped vehicle for the price of the wrap+the new car. I'd probably have to get something big like a frikin H2 to convince people that it would stand out though... and with gas nowadays.. mebbe not worth it.

    I could make it a business though and just pay someone to roll around all the heavy traffic areas in my H2 Fri/Sat/Sun and drive it the rest of the week.

    it is done. they do not give you a car, they pay you to have your car wrapped in with a logo or advertisement - called pay to drive. i'm sure you've seen cars around like that.

    thing is, they want very specific vehicles for certain ad campaigns, you have to have a very late-model car - new or almost new - and you have to be available to drive in the specific areas and times of day they need. most advertisers simply use their own fleet vehicles and employees for this nowadays.

    but, if you want to try, here's a website (not an affiliate link):

    http://bestoffers.islamcan.com/paidcar.shtml

    If you have a panel truck, you have a better chance of finding a company who will pay you to have an ad painted on it. But who the hell
    has any reason to own a panel truck?

    give it a go, but the likelyhood of you getting selected is slim.

    Yeah I would probably have to solicit to local businesses to get something like this going but raising 15-20k for such a thing seems it would be difficult. Permanent advertising though with no monthly fee.. idk. W/e.

    This concept is becoming increasingly more common. west2nd is correct by stating that businesses and advertisers want vehicle specifity. In other words, if you drive a jacked up or older model vehicle, then you are s.o.l. In addition, many companies that advertise in this manner, offer the program to employees first before recruiting the general public. With escalating gas prices, this program has become quite attractive since the advertiser either pays for fuel costs and/or the vehicle payment. A search on y4h00 or g00gl3 with the words "paid to drive car with advertisements" will give you an idea of popularity of this form of marketing.
