One of the classic symbols of Americana, right-behind “Mom” and “Apple Pie”, is “Chevrolet”. The emblem is known as a Bowtie, but the history of its origin is a bit of a mystery, with several stories circulating.
What’s in a name? We recognize many cars based on their symbol. The Cadillac emblem is actually based on the family crest of the man who founded Detroit in 1701 — Antoine de La Mothe, Sieur de Cadillac.
