Trail & Street ID for BBS\'ers

Well, here it is! After many moons - [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]pun totally intended[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] - here is the current design that CJDave and I have cooked up. We now submit it to you all for approval:



We narrowed it down to this for a few reasons:

We have to get ORC approval to use the http://, Short Wheelbase, or anything else that is too close to the actual addresses/names of ORC. The * in the middle of the SWB and BBS further distances ourselves from any infringement, yet all of us know what it means.

We have to get Jeep approval to use a Jeep grille. This grille "resembles" the grille of our beloved machines at articulation - (again, a symbol that all of us knows what it means) - but it may be just be a "Model-T grille" in the event we are harassed by corporate lawyers. Since we are not selling this for profit anyway, and we are a totally volunteer cluster of enthusiasts - they would be hard pressed to go ahead and waste time and money on it.

When blown up to 4" round, the font is more than readable at two car lengths - the further you get - the more the moon guy shows up.

The purpose of the Copyright is so that some unscrupulous schmuck doesn't pirate this from us and Copyright it for themselves - then screw us all if we decide to make this our mark. This way, they have to get permission from me to use the logo - or I can get it back from them if they decide to steal it.

This is simple, resembles a our 4x's articulating, gives the shorthand of our "community," and resembles our moon guys without actually copying one (and probably having to get some sort of weird permission to do that too!)

Well - enough said. If you have questions, feel free to post them. If you like it - let us know. If enough people want this, I'll start bothering my buddy for some low cost printing and cutting.

Ya know...if you just print this out, you can use window tinting to adhere it to the inside of your windows...
