It’s a shame car companies don’t make emblems and badges like they used to.  Nowadays it seems only the European companies are still using the highly detailed badging.  Most everyone else makes do with plain Jane lettering and a boring corporate logo.  Old JDM badges are amazing little pieces of jewelry that were worn proudly…  With such ornate detailing, these little beauties really are pieces of art.

Toyota Celica

Toyota Crown

Toyota MR2

Toyota Soarer

Mazda RX3

I’ll give a dollar to anyone who can get a clean shot of the 1st generation Nissan President’s badge!
