Offebacher Madche

I have no clue what this phrase means. But I think if you're going to put a sign or painting on your car, its meaning ought to be clear to everyone. Right? ;-)

Tee hee. Don't you like a little mystery? :)

The driver is a soccer fan, I think. An Offebacher girl.

Can't help you with this one, Jacob. I'm still trying to figure out what Haagen Dazs means.

I don't know. I would guess it might mean to back off or you will get the Mad Che after you.
Don't know what that is but I wouldn't want it after me.

I was curious too, Jacob, so I googled it and the first thing that came up was this site and a whole slew of sites that seem to be linked to you. Then I found it on a German boxing site, but I could not make out from the context what it refers to. So I'm still in the dark too. German on a Japanese car in the USA. Mystery.

Well, the mystery is about to be solved. That was my car. Offebacher Madche is Hessen slang for Offenbacher maedchen (aka girl) Offenbach is the town in Germany where I was born. Such a surprise to see the curiosity. Thanks guys for making my day! :)

Greetings Edith and thank you for writing. One of the fun things I do on this blog is try to find cars with interesting bumper or other stickers and other messages for the masses. This post was a long time ago - 7 years. And it was rather sad for me to notice that some of those commenting have died and others have faded away. Life is all about change, I guess.
