    Why not Pontiac Badges seeing as they are sold in the US as the G8 with a different front bumper?

    true - but you do see MRT badges on stock foresters, NISMO stickers on maximas, TRD stickers on camrys, Rallyart stickers on mirages - it happens everywhere. When compared to things like that, I think chev badges are a fairly minor misdemeanour - they're not claiming greatness or track presence - just the wrong badge.

    i mean, if u really wanted to draw a long bow, the current camaro (which i assume has an SS model like the old ones), if i remember correctly is pretty much the holden chasis with a camaro shell on it

    feel free to correct me of im wrong, cbf to research it at this time, but i seem to remember hearing that

    I can't see why people give a **** about this. I personally think no badges look the best but chev badges look alot neater than the Holden ones and they do have some truth behind them on the lsx model holdens
