Emblems

19 posts in this topic

I like it when cars have individual model emblems, not just emblems for the make. About the only "corporate" emblem I like is the first emblem pictured. All of these pics are crops from pictures I've taken....

Anyone else prefer individual model emblems and/or take pics of emblems?

Just about the greatest emblem IMO I can quickly recall is the 1st gen Viper. Like the Ram head, too.

Those born-in-the-'70s MC emblems I never cared for- too froo-froo, frilly & meaningless.

I liked a lot of the '60s Pontiac emblems, tho: GTO, GP, Bonne.

It does add to the image when done well.

I like emblems generally, as long as they are well done.

Far too many have been far too crappy for far too long.

I think it shows a lack of pride in the product.

While I prefer the bigger Ponchos, the early Firebird emblem is my favorite...

I agree.

Plus ... for me, anyway ... many of the ones out now are just ... well, boring. I always thought of the emblems as adding character to the models....

Balthazar ... cool Skylark emblem!

Not very many model-specific emblems anymore..the Mustang, Viper and Corvette are the only current domestic ones I can think of right off...(the Impala doesn't have it's anymore, IIRC).

Ever since I was maybe three years old when I was mesmerized by this logo...

I've been a big fan of the Ford Thunderbird- still dream of owning one of the 2000s era "Retro-birds" complete with removable hardtop someday.

Sadly, I think it does still have it....just not on it as much....

LOVE that Ford Thunderbird emblem!

This 1965 Monza65turbolrg.jpg

Is that actual coloring in the emblem ... or a reflection from something else?
