Chevy Bowtie Emblem

Disclaimer: This isn't anti-chevy in any way. I love the camaro and am going to buy one.

I honestly just dont like the giant gold bowtie emblem in the grill. My 4th gen doesn't have them and I love how concise it is. As a matter of contrast, I've shooped out the emblems.









I'll let you be the judge.

to me, the back looks fine bare, but the front reminds me of what people would look like without a nose.

Without a gigantic nose. ;-)

Maybe it would fit more on a black one.

I think, proportionally, the bowtie on the 2010 is roughly the same size as the bowtie on the '69 grilles.

Black car or black bowtie? I think the red outlined black bowtie may look nice, but we'll have to see.

As do I. I guess I just don't see how the 2010 Camaro's bowtie would be that big, especially in comparison to, say, the Cadillac emblem on an Escalade.

I've shared my thoughts on this a few months ago, I'm leaving the badging the way it is.I want anyone and everyone to know it's a Chevy. I'm proud of the brand (not that those that de-badge are not) and I want to make sure there's no mistake to any one that see it that the new Camaro is out on the prowl.

I am ok with the badging. I would have liked to see the front bowties on the SS replaced with an SS. But I didn't get the SS, Just think an SS would look better there on those models.

I am fine with the bowtie on the front and the rear; however I am not crazy about the gold. My wife's 2005 Monte Carlo has a blue bowtie and it looks much better than the gold.

An SS in the front would look better in my opinion.

When I first saw the cars nose, I was hoping the grill would see the traditional "SS" emblem in the center. Now the bowtie has grown on me and I understand why it's there.

Gold?

I'm sure there will be plenty of aftermarket items to address the gold bow-tie. My wife loves the car but really hates anything gold colored...jewelry, doorknobs, kitchen fixtures, teeth, and especially car emblems.

A nice satin-nickel one to match the after-market fuel-cap would work just fine. What ever happened to ... "Beware the Red Bow-Tie" from the 454SS days? SS/RS should have a red one, standard, IMO.

This discussion is basically why I'm getting the heritage grille to swap out as I please (at lesat I hope that's how I can manage it). I plan to get the insert (all but the grille itself) painted to match the body and use either a bowtie or an SS (RS/SS, because it'll have the red lettering) badge in the center.
