Vintage emblem on grill?

I have a 2014 GT and installed the Cervinis GT500 style grill. It's almost identical to the CDC grill but also comes with mesh you can put behind it.
I also added the standard tri bar Mustang Pony logo (as seen in my avatar) to the passenger side of the grill...like where the snake goes on a real GT500. It looks nice, clean and .... Well....just like everyone else's.
Which brings me to this:
What about instead of the tri bar pony, I snap up a vintage Ford emblem and use that instead. Here are a couple I'm considering.
Any thoughts? Nice or rice? I can only attach one pic at a time so here's the first one and the second one is in the next post.

And here's the other one I've found so far. Anyone have any other ideas for a unique but not poser emblem?

I like the top one but I feel it would look odd

I like the vintage idea and did a similar mod using a straight tail pony emblem from a 70’s Mustang II on my Roush grille.

The emblems would look good on the wall in a garage, but not on the car.

That's kind of what I'm thinking also the more I try to picture them on there. The grill and front of the car look good without any emblem at all but a little plain.
The tri bar pony looks good but everyone has them and I like the idea of putting an old emblem back in the wind like the guy that used a 70's pony. That's unique and nostalgic too. It's kind of a weird thing though to find a genuine vintage emblem that also fits and doesn't look out of place.
There's also these:

I like the ones where guys stack a

Like that on those grilles. But if your stuck on being different (even though I haven't seen more than 1-2 like I just mentioned and that was on Instagram not local or ever in person) then you will eventually find something you will like. But you might have to buy a few and see it in person trial and error before you get it right.

Size and shape play a big part in the emblem working with the car and grille.

Can you snap a pic of what you have now? I can't really see your avatar and I don't know that I've seen a tribar pony on a GT500 style grille.

Agreed. Wouldn't fit the car IMHO.

Here it is. Not the best pic. The mesh behind the grill is actually a much darker grey now than in this pic but I can't take a current pic for a few hours.

I haven't seen that on that style grille. If I were you I'd leave it and buy that matching lower grille 😎

Ok, I think I've narrowed this down to two. One is the vintage 1960's style front GT badge shown below. Probably not many of those on S197s so it would be unique but also appropriate since it is a GT.
The other in the next post is actually a wing nut emblem for the top of an air cleaner but I can easily engineer up a way to mount it in the same place (and instead of) as my current pony emblem on the passenger side of the grill. It's definitely different and I bet no one has a grill emblem like it.

And here's the wing nut emblem. Any thoughts?
Neither one puts me in a poser class, claiming it's a Steeda, Roush, Shelby etc but they're both also unique.

I think the 60's style badge is not only unique, but would look good on the car.
