The Malibu let the Accord in and the Rest is History

The mid 1970s was a time of transition for the American automobile market. For years the cars built by our domestic brands were large and imposing, giving us vehicles that offered massive size and weight but did very little to adhere to the new emissions and fuel regulations. In fact, one exercise in the failure of the domestic brands to change and adapt was found in the fact that Honda was able to transform a Chevrolet Impala and make it pass the new emissions standards that GM claimed were impossible to meet.

Some of the most complex logos such as Porsche and Alfa Romeo offer intricate histories and tell a story with that simple picture. Other logos are pretty simple to figure out such as the Ford oval but some simple logos actually have more meaning that you might expect. these logos can trace their history back nearly a century or more to show us what the thought process was when the logo became a reality that we see on the cars built by that company today.
