I’m in the process of downsizing right now and my new passion for the MGB GT is already taking up too much space. But we all like collecting items that we are interested in, don’t we?
I’ve been puttering a little online recently and a few items have turned up that are cool and small. The first is car emblems, quite often beautiful enamel jobs to put on your MG grill or dash and awesome whether you own an MG, Porsche, Ferrari or Buick. Yeah, I did say the B word, forgive me, but some people are into them! The other is stick shift knobs or whatever you want to call them. They come in as good a variety as your favourite hot sauce.
Anyway, the enamel grills are very cool. I’m thinking that a few older ones would look good on the grill of my car and perhaps be a distraction, don’t want anyone looking too closely at the beat up grill on my car.
Many car clubs produce them, rally organizers crank them out, they even come with your favourite countries flag beautifully enameled so if you take your car out of the country people know where you’re from.
Here are a few nicely done enamel emblems, not from my neck of the woods but so cool anyways.
