Spotted an Iveco parked up and photographable, to replace the IoniQ model name with a proper maker's name.
Close up, yes the "I" has dropped off :-D

Iveco, cherry picker and what looks like a military vehicle all in a row? Film set? Or just random coincidence?

That Military thing was a blue light Land Rover-ey type style normally parked up there, and the other vehicle in the line was this suitably full of junk and Jerry Cans in the back.

Here is an original left over from my restoration and so far not covered if we say the motorcycle version is a different badge although originally sister companies. You can find out more about that here!

With most of the Renault Vehicles on the road or in the carpark in 2023, relying only on translation of the logo as proxy for the full letters of the makers name proudly adorning their vehicles I have had to rely on this....

Took this bit of plastic off the BB Clio and never put it back on again, but a more obvious maker's name normally out of sight under the bonnet.

While I was in Ellesmere there was a classic car show. I did take a few pictures, including this one.

I've done my personal A to Z , 26 but still plenty of photographic interest in the subject matter....

The badge would have to read now, "Ford of anywhere but England"

I already included the right-hand MG badge in the Falcon 26 for the thread, but just look how shiny and bold the new MG badge is, on a very shiny worthy of "Favourite Colours for Cars" metallic red chunky looking SUV.

The entire Austin/Morris/Rover/Triumph/Riley/Wolseley/BMC/British Leyland stable including MG all going nowhere disappeared from the scene, with the only thing of value left the "brands". Can't blame the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation from going shopping and picking up the MG brand.

Surprise surprise they have made a success of it, whether you like their offerings or not, and in a turnaround MG is a brand selling well in Britain and you see them every day on the roads of the United Kingdom.

The Makers name beginning with "I" is quite a small pool, with I would say IVECO, and ISUZU being the most common.
I bagged an IVECO for the Falcon 26, but this is the first photographable ISUZU I have spotted since the thread kicked off...

Proper close ups of the Triumph badge two different ways, and a personal favourite of mine.

This Ford took the "F" Slot in the Falcon 26, very nice too.
