In praise of the chrome logos and lettering affixed to vintage automobiles and electric appliances — those unsung metal emblems and badges that are overlooked, forgotten, damaged, lost to time or the dump.

1966 Fargo A100 Panel Van (by Richard Spiegelman)

Fargo was a brand of truck manufactured by the Chrysler Corporation. In general terms, Fargo trucks were a mere rebadging of Dodge trucks models. U.S. sales were discontinued in the 1930, but the name Fargo was used until 1972 for Canada, and lived longer for other countries. Theories on why Chrysler used the name Fargo include the imagery of open range of the American west, symbolized by the city of Fargo and the Wells-Fargo stage lines, while another theory assumes there was a play on the words “Far” and “Go”, denoting durability.” — Wikipedia
