It's really a classy design.  I guess it was actually placed ON the vehicle?  (I wonder if they have a V4.....lol)

Yup, the grille was usually a popular place for emblems like that on the old cars.  That's so your neighbour knew that your car was better then his!  See, not much has changed...  BTW, I double checked, and the design actually originated in the 1930's.  Next time I'll do my homework first!

Ahhhh....so this would have belonged to Mr. Jones.

  So now you've told me something I didn't know.

Exactly.  But when Mr. Jones didn't keep it locked up, along came Bonnie & Clyde.  It was their stolen car of choice.  They even wrote a letter to Ford praising the virtues of 'owning' such a fine car...

Mr. Henry Ford
Detroit Mich.

Dear Sir:-
    While I still have got breath in my lungs I will tell you what a dandy car you make.  I have drove Fords exclusively when I could get away with one.  For sustained speed and freedom from trouble the Ford has got every other car skinned and even if my business hasen't been strictly legal it don't hurt anything to tell you what a fine car you got in the V8.
    Yours truly
    Clyde Champion Barrow

I pulled up the letter.  Of course my Ford only has four cylinders, as I can't justify spending substantial amounts of my earnings fueling up.

I'll tell ya something else I know.  There's certain individuals that take Web Forums far too seriously.  It's as if there's an underlying mental illness that's the root cause of their strange behaviour.  Borderline Personality Disorder, perhaps?  Usually they get banned sooner or later, but it's almost interesting to catch an inner glimpse of the methods of their madness while the opportunity presents itself.

To me they just seem irrational and annoying when they try to create dissention.
Thousands of years ago cats were worshipped. They have not forgotten.
