    I'm not much of a car buff. But the logo looks like a couple of felines on rear legs ready to slash with front. Jaguar or Renault?

    I thought they were lions.
    Those are Indians and the ship is the Mayflower. It is an old Plymouth emblem.

    My first guess is DeSoto.
    I know I've seen that emblem when I was younger.

    Have you ridden in my 1987 Olds with the 22" rims?

    Next time your in town look for the burnt orange one.

    (Yeah, right. The tire make up and suspension of the older cars (pre-radial-tire) gave the smooth ride.)
