Today's stuff is flashy and slick but it lacks the character of yesterday's logos.

If you go to the cartype page and at the top click on company logos, there is alot of information about each car company there...I just found out Cadillac was originally started by Ford, then went independent and then picked up by GM. oh yeah...this one is pretty awesome!

The Stone, Woods, Cook, Willy's had a Roth lettered ratchet man on the lower 1/4 panel. Check out the latest Rodders Journal for a pic.

Great link. I used that when I had this made by Andy at Zumografx. I sketched it out on paper and he did all the heavy lifting. I had decals made and they turned out great!

Any guys of a certain age get warm feelings for the old ones because we all collected them and stuck'em on anything we could - school books, bikes, first tool box, etc. And the art was freehand and beautiful.

But from a marketing approach, only a few really performed to their maximum potential. The Racer Brown Cams "woodpecker" has to be the champ image of all hot rodding. Less than half the guys who stick'em on their cars today know what they represent, but just dig the image. Just screams "outlaw"!

In today's market the VP Racing Fuels logo is king. Clean and simple. I used to do marketing for them and was always amazed at how visible the decal was on a moving car, burn-outs, on TV, even from 100 feet away. That's the test of a great logo from a commerce point of view.

here is the one on the back window of my 54, it's been there since at least the mid 70's, when my dad bought the car. he said the decal looked at least a few years old then. i don't know anything about it but it's cool.

Are you thinking of the Clay Smith logo?

Just a quick comment about the Schnieder Cams iron cross. That was the only German insignia that was seen when I was a kid that was OK to have on your car. Back then WWII vets were still pretty spry and a swastika or Luftwaffe style iron cross would get you a poke in the snoot and a quick history lesson. And nobody dared to show a rising sun flag. The vets were not, even slightly, OK with that stuff. Also, if I remember correctly, the Schnieder logo was one of the first decals seen on hot rods.

Those vets might have known that, but, I don't think they'd have cared. They had marched through hell to allow us to be skate punks or what ever we want to be. Then they came home and created the hot rods and customs we all love today. It's no wonder they are called the Greatest Generation. We would be better off to venerate the whole ethic of those guys as well as the cars they created. If America ever has to face an enemy like the Axis, I wonder if we could rise to the task.

Anyway, that's why you'll never see swastikas, rising suns or SS death heads on my stuff. It dishonors my heros.
