It may just be me (and probably is) but does that phrase seem a little arrogant to anyone? Plus it ties the emblem to the old designer.
The slogan doesn't bother me. It is Ford's tag line from back in the day, so it's appropriate in my opinion.

Your version of the HCS is pretty BANG ON I think.
Simple, meaningful and true to the Rockies spirit! Well done.

If I were to nitpick, I would move the crest down to be on line with HCS and shift HCS letters over to the left a little in order to center them both. I would also then move car a touch to the right from its current position once crest was moved. And, even if you don't change a thing its look very good.

Cool

On the dealer brochure for the 68 HCS it simply said "The West Made it Happen" and those brochures are priceless if you can find one. I'm sure that Bob Teets has one and I'll bet that Marty Rupp has one. I've never seen one in person just a photo.

Cheers,

Ron

You may want to change the verbiage on the HCS version

Gary I like you design, but would like a color on the car. I think I would prefer a cling rather than a decal. I can not have any decals on our concours cars. The cling I could take off and put back on.
Just a thought.

I was referring to the dealer sales brochure like the one below.

Cheers,

Love the look of the latest version, and I agree, cling is best. Hey, maybe the GT/CS could be Candy Apple Red?
