Well I certainly have a unique situation. My father works in auto industry and went out and got 5.0 emblems with me the day I got the fox. Didn't really have a choice in the matter. It looks cool though so I'm not complaining . I'm not gonna tell the old man no, especially when he is the reason I got the car in the first place. Haha he doesn't care what others think, he has cobra emblems on his explorer.

Well when he's compromised all his fancy cars back in the day when me and my brother was born. Had a bad to the bone black trans-am with a gold chicken and a 86 fox gt. so he does what he can. Finnaly has a 68 caddy deville to work with so maybe he will pay some attention to that.

Who do u think ur foolin? 1 race and ur the town tool every one gets a turn to flame how they "walked" a cobra its imbarissing to the whole line of cars but if dudes got say an ls1 and thinks he just rolled up on a 6er (cause of badges) and gets walked on well u get it if u dont theres no help for ya.

Other then badges and any part that "badges" the car (ie cobra in the rear cobra bumper) fly at er what ever u like the look of. put it on i like custome anything so long as its flow or mojo is there but like i said if the part its self says something ur cars not ether fill it or dont do it cause ur only defacing the rep of all that line of car (its called taste) not to mencion everybody with a real cobra or shelby has to put up with the d-bags that thought they smoked one (when it was not).
So true !!!!

I get that but the comment was not necessary regardless if he "works" for this forum or not. Prob should lead by example and not comment In the manner toward folks who are on the forum.... That's bad business where I come from.

Well to be fair... you did start a thread bashing on what some people like to do.. its an opinion and should not be questioned openly on the forum... but at the same time I get your reasoning for making the thread. So you can't get butt hurt over someones reply to your roasting thread.

Regardless where I 'work' I too am entitled to post my opinion. FYI we all volunteer our time and effort here.

I agree about mis-badging cars. I really don't care what ppl do with their cars cause, it's theirs. I choose to focus my energy on other things..

I was simply creating a thread to get responses back .... We all have opinions this I know. I personally don't care how people dress their car up either but again it was a thread created to get feedback... That's it.

I really dont think it was ment personally towards you fact is he stated a mater of his taste im honestlly im with him on it creative or not (no disrespect intended) i think it looks stupid and even worse when ppl get them "blinged" (dimond studded or at least phony dimonds) its kinda rice man but ur ride so if u like it thats all that really matters right (i mean honestly not everyone likes my 4x12in side pipes dosnt bug me one bit even if they say it cause i do and it looks creative and b/a in my eyes. Thats all that matters!)

Re: Fake A$$ cars ?!?!?

What a firestorm! It's pretty simple, you can put anything you want on your car no matter what kind of car it is. If you think it looks cool, then great. BUT if you're putting Shelby or Cobra stickers or badging on a V6 or GT, you'll eventually be embarassed when you have to admit that it's not really what the badging is.

Is it worth looking cool some of the time and having yourself embarassed every now and then? I love the Shelby badging and logo, but I'm not putting it on GT/CS, but that's just me.

I think the miss badging thing is 50/50 but hears y 50% is ppl puting shelby or cobra stuff on lesser v6ers or gts (it would be kinda ok if the gt was built like WOW!!! But even then) bad the other side of the coin is the top 50% where u have a really ba shelby or cobra built to the nines but ur wanting to make a serious sleeper so u got gt or 6er badging on and some seriouslly quit mufflers im cool with that so thats but its all about personal taste so any thoughts yall?

So misbadging is wack. But what about using aero and parts from other models? For example: I own a GT but I want a Saleen grill, C/S rear defuser and a Boss intake. Besides the intake, the grill and defuser give no power gains and are purely cosmetic just like the badges. Is that the same as being misbadged?

The only time I don't mind seeing a v6 or gt car with the wrong badges is if its had an engine swap. If its a v6 shell with an 01 cobra swap, I'm fine with the badges, a v6 with a gt engine fine. A gt with a cobra swap fine, a debadged anything is also fine in my books. I don't like down-badging a car tho. Takes away from the car somehow. I would never put GT badges on my mach 1.

Hmmm how do you guys feel about clones?

Like a Mach or boss on an 05-09, there weren't ever any in production, and people know that, but do you consider it misbadging or fake?

Always wondered that, just saw an 05-09 white Boss replica at Frys...
