To emblem or not to emblem

I put the Z28 emblems on the rear spoiler and the front grille, but not the fenders. Its kind of a cleaner look IMO.

But my car is not a real Z nor am interested in originality. So like others have said, just do what you think is best for your application.

My car is not an original Z but the previous owner painted it and badged it with Z emblem. In my case I would have left the Z emblems off. Jut me.

It don't matters about looking nice to everyone ,,,, do whatever you like on your car ,, because that's your car. Yes dude if you like than get it done. Why waiting?

Displaying the wrong emblems is worse than no emblems at all, IMO.

I have a nice set of the Berlinetta badges but I think they are kind of ugly (stuck in the middle of the sail panel), so I left them off.

I did retain the Berlinetta horn button but that's the only thing (besides the VIN) which identifies it as Berlinetta.

We don't need no stinking badges. ;)

Part of why I’ve been partial to the ‘73 z28s with type LT. No stripes or z28 markings. Has that “stealth” look.

I like seeing emblems on a classic car. It's sorta like the "art" aspect of the car, with all of the different scripts, shapes, colors, etc. It's the car's bling. If it were a protouring car or a race car, then I wouldn't care so much.
