You got it, it was on the "Motorama" Vette BEFORE it was even shown at the first Motorama. The emblems were swapped out for the ones that would be as we know them today litterally right before the show.

It's your floor!

I was suprised to learn they had to change it due to not being able to use the American flag for any kind of commercial advertisement. Seems that law is not around anymore or just ignored.

I'm sure this one will be answered quickly.

What was the brand and color of the car "The Little Ol' Lady from Pasedena" drove?

Well, it was a "Brand new shiney red super stock Dodge" of course! Saw Jan and Dean in concert a few times!

I don't think there was any "law" about that emblem. I think it was all about how they wanted to portray the car and that they were looking for European sales as well as here. But the car was literally delivered to the Motorama with the American flag emblems and they were swapped out right there before the show from what I understand.

Folks..We have a winner!!!

Good memory Brian. I thought that might go quick. Rock and Roll and old cars seem to go together.

The next one is yours.

Concerning the Vette logo. For a site with an article that has a lot of info on vette logos just google "corvette_logos.html". It should be the first site on the page.

I was thinking some kind of jeep, 3/4 ton or duece and a half. I guess those are old army. The gas pump on the fuel gauge made me think it was too new for that, but it looked like a military paint job. I didn't even think of a humvee.

If no one s going to jump in I just ran across some trivia.

What company pioneered the now standard heater core and when did they do it?
For a bonus which company and what year used the heater core along with valves and shutters to have the first climate control for the automobile?

1930 that GM pioneered the now-standard heater core.
In 1937, Nash Motors advanced climate control using filters and much-finer controls that enabled motorists to regulate airflow and temperature. By this time, heater cores were the norm, because gas heaters were too costly and risky, and simply using ambient heat from the engine wasn't potent enough.

I love Google!

ACDelco has a history of 2 spark plug companies. can you name the 2 companies and the founders of these companies. One of the founders actually started 2 spark plug manufacturers, can you name the 2 companies he was involved in for a bonus point.

Dinger,
I'm also a Googler, so I will wait a while to see if it is answered before I get in. Wish they had Google when I was in school.

Later
Bob
