Pig Face is an underground industrial group... No idea what it has to do with subys, but maybe they played a show locally.

If it was the tirangle logo like this it was for the band:


If it was a round logo like this it was for a skateboard company:

"The pig is a mascot for the Japanese manga (comic) magazine Young Magazine. It's always somewhere on the cover... The pig appears on Petter Solberg's rally car. For the past two years the pig has only been on the driver's side mirror. Back in 2002 it showed up on the co-driver's side as well, but that seems to have been dropped now. It ONLY appears on Petter's car -- Mikko's car doesn't have it, and Tommi's (when he was with Subaru) did not either. Toshihiro Arai (in the Production championship) has the pig on both of his side mirrors, as well as a little piggie on his driving suit. I suspect that it's a personal sponsor, rather than sponsoring the entire Subaru World Rally Team or STi."

One Pair (2) of white die cut vinyl decals of the famous PIG Mirror decals on the Subaru WRX WRC Car,The decals are approx 3.5 inches tall by 4.2 inches wide. These decals are not very common and would look perfect on the rear view mirrors, or wherever else you would like to place them, the decals are made from quality Oracal Vinyl that will last for years

LOL i used to have pig wheels..... those damn things last forever. I think they were 58mm. I wanted these light green colored wheels for so long, but I never got them because the pigs just kept soldiering on. They realy are good wheels.

Dunno. I've been using this handle for like 8 years. I doubt the site you're talking about existed back then.

I agree, but what background color? I doubt the silver would match. I guess I could try xacto-ing the piggy off to give a transparent background.

I've got a silver car, w/ black mirrors and I got the two-tone silver/black piggies, they look perfect.

These guys are great, you will get your pig quick and its nice quality, spend the little extra and get the two-tone, not the outline, it sticks better, the outline is a pain to put on.

They also do custom work for a reasonable price, I got a pretty badas NIN tag from them. Shamelessly plugging them because I was so happy with what I got.
