I was just wondering has anyone tried those sites where you pay $14 and a company may want to advertise on your car and you get a monthly check? Does these kind of sites really work? Here is an example of one:http://www.directcarads.com/. I am thinking about doing this but I don't know if it will really work?

Also I don not want a new car I just want to drive mine with an ad on it.

Thanks for any help!!!

NOTE: I do not endorse this company.

First, the site cannot spell.
Secondly, this should tell you something is NOT RIGHT:

"it's absolutely free to join. $14.95 is all you have to pay...."

Take the 14.95 and get your nice ride an oil change.

Its doubtful that they will get you anybody to advertise on your car unless its a new Rolls Royce or Bentley or some such. They certainly won't if its a 72 Pinto, if you catch my drift.

Personally I've always thought of this as a scam. Even though they may be legitimate. However do you really think this company will actually get any more business by you putting an ad on your vechile?

Well, I have seen vehicles dressed up like that so someone must think it works.
