Car Logos

Post by DarcShadow » Wed Jun 17, 2020 7:26 am

Don't know why, but I got thinking about car logos the other day and got wondering how many specific cars have their own logo. I can only think of three.
  • The Mustang's mustang
  • The Corvette's flags
  • The Viper's Sneaky Pete
Anyone thing of any others?

The Camero had a red white and blue stripe shield logo for a while, don't know if they still use it
The Buick Riviera had a stylized R emblem
The Honda Gold Wing has a Thunderbird like emblem
The Datsun/Nissan Z cars have their circle Z emblem
Pontiac Firebird had a Firebird
Dodge Hellcat has a cat head
Dodge Demon has a demon head
Ford SVT Lightning had the word Lightning in funny font over a lightning bolt, not sure if that counts
Chevrolet Impala has a running four legged horned animal of some sort. Likely a type of antelope, but exactly which species is unclear
Ford SVT Mustang "Cobra" had a cobra emblem
Mercury Cougar had some sort of wild cat emblem, like a puma or something

Damn. The Firebird and Roadrunner I should have remembered, as I owned both at one time.

Edit: I did own a '75 Cutlass Salon that had several flags under the Salon emblem. I think it's the only Cutlass that had it, but I could be wrong.

I didn't remember very well, so I had to look it up. But the AMC Gremlin had a "Gremlin"

Something stuck in my head about the Corvette flags. I did a little looking and found that it was used on the Corvair as well. Of course that was a long time ago. It is possible I only remember it because when I was young I lived across the street from a guy who owned three of them, a daily driver, a convertible, and a race car which he actually raced. But even then the cars had been out of production for some time.

Very cool, several more than I thought. I've always liked model specific emblems, give the car more personality.
