So I saw a '54 Fleetwood one day and just fell in love with that era's Caddy emblem. Problem is I can't find one for myself.... But before I resort to murder to get one I thought I'd get some input. I put it on a black "V" grille and put the "V" grille on my car in Photoshop. (I still have the brownish grey factory one)

Haha, thanks! I really like the sports grille as well though, I might mock it up tomorrow. I also intend on having the chrome either blacked out or completely painted black. (the fogs where Photoshopped too, they wouldn't be as "chromey" in that shading)

I don't know if I like it, but I have seen those vintage emblems on several newer cadillacs. They were all DTS though.

i think i would like it on the back better than the front...and much smaller.
i was actually looking at those exact emblems a few times on ebay.
the one i really like is the flying angel hood one, but it just doesnt suit the cts, if i had a deville i would put it on.

The last time I saw a flying lady on a hood, it was on a Chrysler 300 that was pretending to be some sort of phantom / flying spur clone.

then there is the 1948 one that looks like its for a sports car (they should work this into the V from stock)

WOW, i was skeptical with the emblem before seeing the pics. I think that gives the CTS a whole new look (from the front end). I say go for it and im looking forward to seeing the end result.

haha I actually have pics with the little V, I bought one and took them awhile back, it just seems like this body style was meant for it, in my opinion. Here's close up pics of the front and rear emblems
