: Badges make me go faster.

Karmann, the coachbuilder that hand-assembled the Crossfire, used to mail out free badges and decals if you emailed them telling them how much you loved your car. Well, Karmann stopped doing that because they filed for bankruptcy. A very generous person on the Crossfire forum mailed them to me for free.

I like how the blue badges sort of match the aero blue paint.

Between the Chrysler and Karmann badges, I have TWO bankrupt companies adorning my vehicle. There's an AMG 3.2 badge too -- bankruptcy powered by AMG.

Hey, maybe you can slap a Plymouth badge on there too! Heck, maybe even a Circuit City badge!

Whenever I see the Karmann name, I always think of the cleverly named character from The Producers (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063462/) (1968), Carmen Ghia (http://www.aveleyman.com/FilmCredit.aspx?FilmID=15298):

One of the reasons Karmann is no longer with us is that their cars used to rust right before their owners eyes. BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen didn't make any difference. I hope adding the Karmann badges to your Chrysler/Mercedes product won't "speed" up the process!

I think Karmann may have gone bankrupt from mailing out so many badges for free...

Shipping is expensive!

I just pictured a red CC badge on the steering wheel.

Would have been epic if the car was originally financed by a failed bank.

The art deco styling is really cool.

I take it Karmann had a role in the Karmann Ghia then....

Someone at work has one they drive in sometimes - very cool. I like them alot.

I did an inspection of a '68 Karmann Ghia a couple of summers ago. It was a cool little car; drove very nice and didn't feel underpowered. No tire-fryer, but still fun.

Are they somewhat affordable as weekend-use classic cars? The shared Beetle mechanicals make it appealing for maintenance and restoration reasons, I assume?

How about cleaning that brake dust out of those front wheels; spiffy stickers require clean wheels to operate at full capacity. :)

I'll see your hood scoop and porthole and raise you two original MOROSO oil pan stickers and an Engle Cams. Call with a late 80's Hays Clutch sticker.
