Crooked bowtie / "plus" sign?
Big ugly sheep head?
A "diamond star"?
Goofy Toyota/Acura/Lexus "symbols"?
None of them are really outstanding.
The Blue Oval is as good or better than any others... very quickly
What the heck is a "New Venture"? Why does it say "Delphi" on all kinds
of stuff under the hood? What's a "Harrison" radiator? Why did my old
Pontiac and my buddy's Buick have "Fisher" bodies... didn't they have
their own assembly lines?
Delco Harrisson is/was a division of GM. So was Delco Remy. I believe
it was renamed Delphi when it was "spun off"
Fisher body was also a division of GM. Gotta remember how GM came into
being.Willy Durant's Chevrolet, Oakland/Pontiac, Cadillac, Oldsmobile,
Harrison Cooling Systems,Fisher Body, Dominion Electrical
Labs(Delco),and MANY other companies were "melded" into one.
I think the big ugly sheep head is already taken.
Maybe they could go with a goat's head or a big "F"
Duesenberg and Packard both had good insignia's but their business
plan/execution sucked. Personally I'd rather have a crap logo and a
good product than a wonderful logo and a crap product.
But then again I'm not running GM or Ford, I take it that "Oil Can
I lived with and grew up on that crown-shield... and IT was the cheesiest
thing I ever saw... until someone showed me the wings on a 30's Chrysler!
The Blue Oval reissue caused me to rejoice that Ford had finally come to
their senses, it's classic and understated and doesnt need to be changed.
I never had a problem, as such with the bow-tie.. just thought it lacked a
sense of ... I dunno.. Creativity, I guess. The new Jumbo-sized version,
however gets on my nerves.
And anyone with a "peeps" in their address, should be taken on THAT face
Go to bed without Your supper!
Yeh, I'm a Krusty old Geezer, putting up with my 'smartass' is the price
you pay..DEAL with it!
Naw, the blue oval is a (classic).
What I find particularly cheesy and ugly to look at is Subarus
insignia. It's a bunch of cheesy stars - a cheese ball design that
never looked right, always awkward.
Besides that issue, Subarus are actually outstanding cars. They just
need to get better members on the design team that actually have some
talent. Their wagons look terrible. Look at the VW Jetta wagon, now
that's a wagon with style. At least their Legacy Sedan is a gem to
look at. The WRX improved a bit since it's release.
How can an innocuous blue oval be cheesy? It's almost invisible, if
Granted, they've had it for a long time.
I submit that it should be changed to a silhouette of a nekkid woman,
like on the mudflap on a semi.
Or else just start calling everything a Merc.
Yeah, that's what I'll do.

One can only ask "Why?"..... As a logo or product identification, it is
known pretty much all over the world...... All car manufacturers have some
serious defects in any production run yet Ford seems to get extra scrutiny
as well as criticism.... Divorcing the company from the logo wont change a
damned thing.... And, lastly, with everything going on in your
neighbourhood, your town, your country..... don't you think your time would
be better spent wondering what can be done about housing, medical care,
dishonest politicians, the homeless, pollution and the general degradation
Shoo!!! little one..... you've got a rather large amount of egg on your
