Sorry for the delay, I was out late yesterday and then had to shovel snow for a few hours this morning.

Next question:

This is the logo for a company that has been making automotive components for over a hundred years. What is the name of the company and what does the design of it's logo represent?

Nope, not Hughes.

This company's world headquarters is near Stuttgart, and currently employs over 300,000 people.

No, and no.

I don't believe they've ever built an entire car. They are best known for their electrical components, although they also make household appliance and power tools among other things. The name has nothing to do with the design of the logo - The company's name doesn't start with an H. Their components have been used in every American car for the past 30 years or more.

It's the Bosch logo. Is it supposed to represent an electric motor armature ? That's my best guess so far.

Artistic representation of a magneto, supposedly one of the first items produced by Bosch.

You got it, Redsdad, it's the Bosch logo, and it's design is based on an early schematic representation of a magneto.

The floor is yours...

Which university did testing on 3/8 scale models of Dodge Chargers which led to the Charger 500 and ultimately the Daytona Charger and the Superbird. The one I am looking for is my alma mater.
