logo a shortening of logogram from gk logos word gram what is written

We want/need a logo, professionals have offered help and we’re going to take it. To play nice, we’re asking for the B&B’s opinions. It’s not a contest, though the winner will be given a prize. PriceWaterhouseCoopers isn’t going to drop by and certify the results and hold us to a winner.

It’s fine to not like something but at least be considerate of the people who contribute their time to this project. Please don’t flame the artists or the site. Them’s the rules.

    I think the best so far is jpdttaclogo2. I think it could use some slight changes, though. I'd replace the sword with a torch, as we come to this site to be illuminated, not to destroy. The artist may want to experiment with shrinking the lady by about 15% - 20%. moving her to the lower right, and see if he/she can't fit THETRUTHABOUTCARS.COM in a continuous arc around the upper left of the circle/tire. Also try experimenting with maybe some basic spokes inside the circle/tire. My second choice is ttaclogo2, though I'd pick a slightly darker shade of gray.

    Of course, I vote for my own (ttaclogo), but in the interest of fairness, I also like the ttaclogo2 though I would remove the ".com" Perhaps this is just a reality of growing up in the internet age, but I find it unnecessary and redundant to put ".com" at the end of any logo. I would venture a guess that most large internet companies would like nothing better than to drop the ".com" as easily as they have dropped the "www." in the past. As more people become familiar with the internet, the prefixes and suffixes are completely unnecessary. Think of how you refer this website to your friends. "I read something on The Truth About Cars the other day...." or "Did you see what TTAC was talking about today?" The ".com" is superfluous.

  • Damon Thomas Adding to the POSITIVES... It's a pretty fun car to mod
  • GregLocock Two adjacent states in Australia have different attitudes to roadworthy inspections. In NSW they are annual. In Victoria they only occur at change of ownership. As you'd expect this leads to many people in Vic keeping their old car.So if the worrywarts are correct Victoria's roads would be full of beaten up cars and so have a high accident rate compared with NSW. Oh well, the stats don't agree.https://www.lhd.com.au/lhd-insights/australian-road-death-statistics/
  • Lorenzo In Massachusetts, they used to require an inspection every 6 months, checking your brake lights, turn signals, horn, and headlight alignment, for two bucks.Now I get an "inspection" every two years in California, and all they check is the smog. MAYBE they notice the tire tread, squeaky brakes, or steering when they drive it into the bay, but all they check is the smog equipment and tailpipe emissions.For all they would know, the headlights, horn, and turn signals might not work, and the car has a "speed wobble" at 45 mph. AFAIK, they don't even check EVs.
  • Not Tire shop mechanic tugging on my wheel after I complained of grinding noise didn’t catch that the ball joint was failing. Subsequently failed to prevent the catastrophic failure of the ball joint and separation of the steering knuckle from the car! I’ve never lived in a state that required annual inspection, but can’t say that having the requirement has any bearing on improving safety given my experience with mechanics…
