I just grabbed at this site for no particky reason. After looking at car logos for an entire lifetime, you might take them for granted, but there's some interesting history behind them usually. Enjoy.

Yes, thanks for posting that. It was very interesting. You never know where a history lesson may be lurking.

An Aircraft Mechanic only needs two tools, Duct Tape and WD40.
If it moves and it's not supposed to - use the Duct Tape.
If it doesn't move and it's supposed to - use the WD40.

A fascinating read!

Two logos which always confuse me when I see them on the rear of cars....

Honda and Hyundai. The Hyundai logo always looking like a distorted Honda; "H"..!

Whenever I loudly utter the word; "HYUNDAI", I automatically adopt the stance of a Japanese fighter with my crossed arms and hands outstretched in front of me.

....(but that's just me being silly again) .... ;) ... :lol: ...!
