any one got em or seen em on boxes???
I pulled one off a waggin in the yard a while ago... it was pretty faded. I tried to find it the other day but all I found was the back to it. It must be lost in my trunk somwhere... Im going to put it on for giggles to see how it 'feels'.
Ill take a pic fo shizzle...
I looked on Ebay to see if there were any nice ones for sale... I didnt find anything that looked like it would work well, and wasnt an expensive NOS badge.

Eh, I like the idea but maybe a little bit bigger badge, or different look might be different.....

Those badges originated from European folks who would put one on their car for every 100,000 miles that the car has driven. It's kindof a show of the class of your vehicle. You see them on Rolls Royce, and Mercedes more often than anything else. Back in the day, people were proud of having a car that lasted, now they are proud of a piece of crap that they just bought.
