Badges? We Don't Need No Stinking. . .Oh Wait, Yeah We Do!

Man, I gotta' get me a Vabis

Ever wonder what the badge on your car looks like, but were just too damn lazy to get up and walk out to the garage to find out? Or maybe someone once asked you “does the Matra logo look like a stylized rooster?” and you could only shrug and mumble something about cheese-eating surrender monkeys.
Well, your problems are all solved because over at Purple Hell, they’ve amassed a whole butt-load of car logos. From Abadal to Zimmer, it’s a pretty comprehensive collection, but there’s a number that are missing as it looks like the brass radiator age has been given the short shrift, and some – notably Triumph – display only the last iteration rather than the most iconic. So go over and see if you can find your favorite badge, or let them know if it’s missing.

      The world always needs more classy GM-powered GTs, with aircraft vents and turtle logos.

    They got Auburn but left off Cord and Duesnberg.
    Also noticed Tajero, Vespa, Prince, Viking, LaSalle, DeSoto, Imperial, Healy, Henry J, Allstate, and I'm sure a few others missing.

      With a face like that I don't know.

    They included some truck marques, but left out Diamond-T, Kenworth, Peterbuilt, and probably a few more that don't occur to me right now. We could all nitpick this list to death, but it's pretty comprehensive. I won't pretend to be familiar with every one of these makes. For instance, what the hell is a Gurgel? I sure hope it looks better than it sounds.

      ". We could all nitpick this list to death.." Sounds like a good plan to kill time this afternoon until the boss leaves and I can start my 4 day weekend.

        I should. That one was my parts car, though, after the ice storm.
