yes. In my mind putting an SVT badge on a cougar is as bad as putting a "GT-R" on a Maxima, or a Type-R badge on a Civic.

At least he used a badge from the same maker.

Yes I was. The longhaired hippy looking freak that won the pumpkin.

In my opinion a badge or two is no big deal, some make a stink about it. It's the ones that put the badge on and go around saying they have that car that I don't care for.

Some will point and laugh, some will think it's cool, some don't care either way.

I agree, buying a $5 badge compared to spending the money on the real thing is ghetto. If you can't afford to buy the real thing don't fake it. A fake badge is a badge of lack of self-esteem. A badge that makes your car look slower than what it really is, is tricky and cruel, but better than being a poser.

Well...

On a stock lx or sc I think it's a no no. But if you were to supercharge a v8 as many have done through the AED kit then at least you're more qualified to wear the badge. The original (4) SVTbirds were SC v8s. Add the SVT rims and it gets better. However personally I would never put one on even a car such as this since it is just plain lieing. SVT never mass produced the birds, so therefore you can never truly have an SVT bird. If you're looking for a badge to go with your modded bird, why not get a "supercharged" emblem or even a cubic inch badge like 302 or what have you?

svt

I have an SVT badge on the bottom of my tail light on my mod' ed 95 Nothing really is left untouched on the car and very little is still factory. I love this badge cause all we have around here are kids with imports that call my Nitrous Express "NOS" and to my knowledge its not made by Holley! They always are like "wow I never seen one of those before'' and I always look them strait in the eye and say its a very rare car I own, and and even came from Ford with a Mark VIII interior and "NOS" I have never clamed to another Ford or domestic owner its a SVT so I am not really doing it to lie just to mess with 16 year olds that have already made up there mind that fixing up a car that you can get anodized parts for at Meijer is the way to go. I love my Bird cuase everyone I have met so far with a mn12 is been so nice and not the typical "my car is better than yours" and you see so few mn12s nicely done. Not trying to start anything with anyone just my reasoning behing it.

Imagine this......I see an SVT badge on your bird and I decide to "see what you got" and I am now 3 - 4 car lenghts in front because you dont even have a supercharger.....for example. Now don't you look dumb.

I always say if you talk the talk.....you have to walk the walk.

So what if it is a cougar. Getting beat with your bird or cougar and having a svt badge is still not cool.

So when you get that supercharger, beef up the suspension, work on the intake and have respectable HP ,TQ numbers and 1/4 mile times..........by all means get that SVT badge.

Until then, if your car says SVT and you get you a$$ handed to you.......you look dumb. Whatever it is....Bird or Cougar

Dr. FrankenCougie:
Very impressive, and nice attention to detail! Mine is sitting up on jack stands with the complete drive train out. I am doing a complete reinforcement of the rear subframe and bushings. Then it all goes back in from the rear forward. I hope to get something on the steering shaft before I try to cram in some long tubes. Seems several are working on the same problem, and maybe we will get a solid solution for these stinking headers.

I think that SVT badge is geared more toard performance. So even though there was no SVT Bird/Cougie if you have done upgrades to the car and its no longer stock its a way to tell people.

just my .02

Yeah that's my opinion as well... it just means your vehicle is special... different from stock, and better from stock. I've got SVT badges on my quarter panels and one in place of the LX on the trunk lid... No one has ever really said anything about it, and anyone i show seems to like em' but that's just me....

if your thinking about an engine swap to justify the badging, i think your priorities are skewed a bit

you're obviously pro-rice then

the point is, it would be pretending to be something you're not. if the car was a purpose built show car, then i could understand, but if i see a civic with a type-r badge, race him, and then beat him, how much of a dumbass does he look like when his "type-r" just got beat by a 17 second boat?

oh, and please refer to the "Viper Neon" thread

Fake

I agree with Chris! Who cares if you win lose or whatever just drive your car and have fun with it. If you beat a 17 year old in a civic with a type R badge good job if you don't good job at least your out having fun in your car. That's the way I look at it. Since when does it only matter if you win or lose based on how a car looks or what it says? I have seen some really really nice slow cars, and I still give them respect and may prefer them to a faster one. Make your car a reflection of you not something everyone else has. What I think is every one needs to lose sometimes it keeps you humble, and you don't get to mad about things like emblems. Remember the virtue test by Mr. Franklin? I guess I am growing up I think differently now.

Buddy.....I think you should relax. If you read the title of the thread posted by the owner......he is asking what do you think of "fake svt badging".........so people are giving their opinions on what they think about it. What the hell are you getting so pissed about?
