    I keep seeing cars, of different makes and models (and HGVs too) which have a buffalo silhouette on the back. I *think* its a buffalo anyway.

    Can anyone shed any light on it.

    I don't think its car related, hence why I posted here.

    A lot of people get the stickers when on holiday in Spain as they look 'cool'

    It's like an acronym, it means Jesus the son of God our saviour, then instead of writting that they use a symbol that looks like a fish :)

    And MB beat me to it!

    Thats the first thought that crossed my mind as well, although i havent seen very many in the UK.

    Whats the sierra nevada like for skiing? We have a house close by and have always wondered about going for a few days when i am there.

    Thats definitely the image I have seen on lots of cars recently.
    I was hoping it was some secret cult or a masonic symbol or something interesting - not just because they went on holiday to Spain. Heh.

    As usual - thanks for your help guys.
