If you are looking for a cool graphic look no further to the Army Security Agency

We knew it as the Lightening Fast Chicken F**k*r. Sometimes we used colorful names.

My Jetta took a turn for the better. This morning there was heavy dew on the windows. Getting towards fall. The heater hasn't been worth a darn since we got it. I had the dash out to put in a new instrument cluster and thought now is the time to work on it. I almost took the controls off but decided to track back the vacuum line and found that the vacuum pump had a bad line going to the control. Easy fix.

Some type of number over the stripes would break it up......

Or one of those shields.......

I've been browsing online font sites looking for a round-stem sans serif with large counters to match that original stencil. I figure why mess with perfection. It's as legible as many road signs, but not the same.

MPG Militia for sure.

I'm not sure about Classes in *my* anarchy, but the NHRA has 200 of 'em. Something cryptic like AA/FA or CC/FD. Or Roman numerals for the nominal gas mileage. 47 would be IIIC and 42 would be XCII.

the shields look nice, but they do not fit the great MPG I am getting. if I was ever in a branch of the military i could use that, but I have never served that way.

what about making a shield with a gas can with a line though it (or something better) . the lower part can have the MPG militia name.....

I once had a camo day-pack with my favorite ever unit insignia. In the background was something that encoded 6 and 5 (a six petaled flower and a pentagon?) and down the middle was a lightning bolt with two pieces of a broken chain at the bottom under it's tip. No idea who or where.

Good points on making the classes understandable. That could give them a more in-depth idea of how far we take each car. As in, you don't need a boat tail to get 20% better MPG!

For the MPGM? I can work on it, but I've got other stuff to do first.

Good ideas on the shield guys. As the first non-veteran in my family since the Great War, I wouldn't feel right using something too military-like either. The gas can would be easy to understand. Maybe something a little more metaphorical, too. Wind/aero? I'll do some sketching.

I like this Cavalry logo- "The horse they couldn't ride, the line they couldn't cross, and the color [yell oh] speaks for itself!" It's also a nice, simple design.



Always been a fan of the NPS's logo for its description and the Forest Service's for its simplicity.

I've got this patch on my Timbuk2 messenger bag.
