Here's a few more that I remember:

*Honk if you love Jesus.
*Honk if you're [huh-huh, huh-huh].

Oh for the love of...I was at a party a while ago and brought up those "Hi" signs and noone had any idea what I was talking about...there was even a feature in the Santa Barbara News-Press about them ca. 1979, with a picture of a guy in a car holding up the "I Love You" sign...thank God y'all remember them so I know I'm not crazy.

Another piece of lost LA -- those rainbow KLOS stickers with band names. And stickers for KMET!

My favorite bumper sticker was "I found it, but then I lost it again."
As a kid, before I understood what AA was, I always wondered what those glittery, opalescent stickers meant that said "Take it Easy" and "Get Stupid, Stupid" and "Fake it Til you Make it" in bubble font.

(One of my favorite bits of cultural strangeness is seeing a second [or third] hand car with its original bumper stickers--six Mexican guys who look like they're on their way back from a hard day, in a car with a "I [heart] Mozart" or "KCRW" or "I [heart] my Bichon Frise" or "Bush/Quayle" or "Well behaved women rarely make history" and so forth. Always gotta figure those guys didn't put those bumber stickers on themselves...)

And, might I add, if the van is in fact rocking, please, if you will, do not come a-knocking. Thank you.

I had a KMET bumper sticker! AND those Hi-signs! In fact, I'm such a pack rat that I'll bet you I still have that Hi-sign around here somewhere! 8-[

I remember Hi-Signs VERY well. I never got them, but I used to play with them at the Spencer's Gifts in South Coast Plaza (back when SCP was for us normal folks). I thought they'd be around forever.

Somebody needs to bring those back, I tell ya. I guess it'll probably have to be me....
