The nameplates to remember: Flickr photo of the day


We are well past the era when no new car rolled off a dealer's lot without an extra bit of metal advertising affixed to the rear. Most dealers have switched to the sticky vinyl decals that cost far less and can be easily pulled free with a little heat by the owner. Yet visit a swap meet like goldiesguy did and you'll likely find someone hawking their collection — a bit of commercial history that often recalls long-gone names (although I recognize a few Midwestern dealers still in business from this set). If you have a shot to share, add it to the Motoramic group on Flickr, or send us a message via Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
