There's a famous line from an old movie... "Badges? We don't need no
I don't think a few badges will deflect too much cooling air unless your car
prone to overheating. I've even seen people attach them all over the grill,
saving the cost of the badge bar. On my badge bar which also holds two
Lucas driving lights, I put a British flag, American flag, Triumph logo, and
later squeezed them together and made room for a 10th anniversary British
Invasion badge. It looks very cool.

Subject: badge selection...
Just returning from an absence from the list as I was at the
autox is not an event, and the judging is far less fair than at any car show
have ever been to (though full marks to canada for handling the ripoff with
the grace and understatement I have come to respect in canadians). I missed
I finally got my hands on a TR4 badge bar, which seem pretty rare (as in,
more than you want to, have a hell of a time finding htem, add nothing to
resale value of your car)...
Now that it is almost on, the question on my mind is "what badges do I put
on?" I am not nearly as steeped in autocarna and history as many of you, so
wanted some suggestions that would be historically relevant and fun....
First question- how many badges are appropriate? Two? Four? What is nice,
and what is "too much?" Ho much of issue is wind blockage to the grill if I
put on lots and lots of badges? In general, I lean a bit towareds "over the
top" (which is why I like the "look at all that chrome" TR4)
Second question- what badges? The list decal is de rigeur (but I dont think
there is a list badge, is there?)...as I see it, one could go down two
current club badges (new england triumphs, AAA, also soon to be a member of
VTR), or historic club badges (RAC, TSAA, etc). What rae peoples thoughts?
WHat would hte correct historic badges be for a TR4? What are peoples
favorite badges (car is red)?
Where does one get the suggested badges?
Thanks in advance for your help!
