I may have to do Trunk or Treat next year, as we had very few trick or treaters. Luckily, I have multiple events to choose from, so I'll be going to a secular one. There are already a bunch of threads here debating whether the premise of Trunk or Treat is good or not. That's not what I'm looking for. I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread where people can post there ideas, to help those of us who are going to do it do it in a way that actually looks good.

From the easy:

To the more involved:

Oriental Trading even got into the trend this year, by putting together sets you could buy as something like a pre-made kit:

You'll notice that only 2 (the zombie one and the graveyard one) are anything akin to what anyone here would consider Halloween decorations.

Most pictures I've seen (which are even Halloween-themed) just look like a bunch of Halloween props dumped into the back of a car.

These ones are fairly simple, but are unified around a theme:

I have a pickup truck (though it has a topper on it).

The idea of a cage might be cool, with actual scary stuff trying to get out. A simple pet gate painted black (or with Hammered Iron paint) would work well.

Those are some nice ideas. I am not a big fan of trunk-or treat, though I can see their purposefulness for folks who live in areas not commonly visited by TOTers. Like people who live out in the sticks, or live in apts. or college dorms. I think they are a great way for them to also be part of the fun and excitement of Halloween and it is good to see folks who participate in them really get into them with the decorating of their cars/trucks.
