Muscle Cars – Grill Badges and Styled Letters

We met some good friends and their boys in Cochrane for a classic car show just outside of the town.  The kids had a great time looking at all of the roadsters, muscle cars, coupes and funny cars.  I was drawn to the emblems and lettering used on the cars from the 50’s and 60’s – there was a style that was spread across most makes and models that was very compelling.

Great lettering script on this Mercury Monarch Richelieu

An amazing two-seater open-top sports car the Lotus Seven

I love this classic Mustang’s grill, particularly the horse itself
