We Don't Need No Stinkin Badges!

Its obvious from a parking lot (or more) away. Everyone, even my little sister who does not know a Ferrari from a short bus, can call a vintage corvette when they see one. So why the big flashy badges?

Now, don't get me wrong, Chevrolet did these old badges right- and in a real big way! They stand the test of time and taste as one of the most aesthetically pleasing labels of all time. Its sad to say, but they just don't make them like this anymore. These days a photograph of an automotive badge alone rarely makes the cut. This is a big exception.

So whats the point? Its a label. A label that is meant to tell its viewer that the owner of this car has taste, class and style. A symbol of automotive fun and freedom with a pinch of power.

" Hello, My Name Is: Corvette"

No wonder every little boy aspires to be the man behind the wheel. Who wouldn't with a car like this...This car could bring the most stoic man to his knees.
