I think it looks fine. If you like it I say keep it. Opinions are like *******s, everyoneís got one. Lol. What matters is if YOU like it.

Maybe do a anonymous poll if you want peopleís opinions?

Absolutely correct. If the OP likes it, then they should keep it.

Personally I dislike those hemi badges, don’t need them, glad I don’t have to strip them off. But its a style thing, and if you like it nothing wrong with it.... seems like this comes up every couple years, deja vu all over again

I know itís a Hemi but in my view itís an over used expression

Now if it were a 426 street Hemi that would be different

The debadge trend started in Germany in the 60's with the onset of the German economic recovery. German cars looked very similar from the outside with the engine size identifier as being the major external distinguishing mark. Back then, you could order your car without the engine size on the trunk lid - so no 180 or 280 on the back. That way, the guy that could only afford the 1.6 liter BMW looked the same as the executive that had the "big" engine. Since the plates were riveted on, you actually had to factory it that way, but most cars were factory ordered back then and the plate delete cost about $75 - a fair chunk of change back then.


Somewhere in the 90's - long after that trend died down in Germany - the debadge trend came to enthusiasts in the US.

To the OP, the badge you added is very similar to the one I added to my Overland, looks right on target. When I traded it, I put this badge on my new one.

Hey it looks fine, what's the big, right? I mean it's not like one of those (choose your favorite ethnic group) that has a corvette that has so many trinkets on it that says corvette that covers the entire car with the word corvette ever 4 inches that you almost want to go up to him and ask him if it's really a corvette.

Interesting, but some of us were debadging and dechroming as far back as I can remember, in the 50s at least. Some of us were adding. I think its been going on since the beginning of time fading in and out of style from time to time.
