three options really, 1) look in the store here, 2) search the auction sites and 3) (my favorite) make your own with waterslide decal paper and a computer.

or you can go to a hobby shop and purchase surplus decals....
got mine from tamiya 1/24 scale cars...

Nice looking cars Herman, thanks to both of you for the suggestions..
PaulAngelo, would I need any form of special ink for my printer to make my own? also do you have any links for the material you suggested? Mouse

nothing special for the ink, you would use normal ink. after you print them, you would spray gloss cote (or some protectant) over them. I used this place for mine
http://www.decalfactory.com/u-make.php in my signature, check out my Mini Z cup cars. Decals on the Raiders OL and Enzo were all made.

whatever you chose (you could do a few of the options and combine) make sure you post the results!

Yes I did check out most of his links, took a while. some very nice looking cars..
Damned pesky addictions.. at least this one shouldnt involve late nights at the projects and ending up on a episode of cops or Worlds Best Police chases.. Mouse

You can check out slot car decals and pine racer decals. Most good hobby shops should have this stuff. I took stickers from tattoo conventons and cut out the skulls and stuff that I liked you may find stickers around the house that could be trimmed to what you like. Also look at the craft stores they usually have an entire isle of stickers.
