Hey guys. We've been tossing around the idea of doing a trunk mounted pony emblem. It would go on the inside of the trunk. It would require no permanent modifications to the vehicle and be cut out of mirror finish aluminum.

It will be secured to existing holes for the trunk liner already in the vehicle. However in order to clear raised bosses that exist for the satellite radio connections the emblem will be raised off the face of the liner instead of being flush.

Also because of the mounting points chosen it will not sit perfectly centered in the liner.

The first few pictures are drawings of the emblem and attachments.





This last picture is a mockup of the emblem which shows its position, note it is offset slightly from center.



What do you guys think? Let us know!

I'll take a new faux gas cap with a polished emblem, that's for sure!

Not so sure I'd put something on the inside of the trunk, though...

Personal preference I guess. Keep up the great work!

I don't care for it being off-center like that, is there any way to move the mounting points and make it center any better?

to be honest, it doesn't look right being off center. different strokes for different folks but I wouldn't spend my $ on something thats going to be closed up in the trunk rarely seen.

I like it, but what if you did it in gloos black. It would look good for the car show circuit but not be so in your face.

The idea is good, but I wouldn't get it. If it were centered I'd think about it.

Like others have said, I like the idea; just not sure I would purchase. How much of an offset from flush are we talking about here? I'd definitely go for a replacement for the faux gas cap/new emblem though.

Here's a half-joking idea for helping with the not-so-centered look: Add the front end of a Camaro being outraced by the Pony with some horse turds being plopped-out on the maro's hood...:winks

I like the idea as well. However, as it is right now it's noticeably off centered and doesn't look good.

I like the idea, for folks that attend car shows regularly it's something different that will set your car apart from the others. I like the gloss black idea too, or perhaps even painted to match.

I like the idea in concept, but I personally don't like the fact that it wouldn't be flush so you'd be cutting into the minimal trunk space (even by 1/2 - 1") and then be worrying about something pressing on it.

+1 for car show circuit, -1 for real world. :)

Painted to match, centered, easily removable and cheap. Then you'll get some buyers.

I like it, get it centered, painted to match body color and maybe make one that is the 5.0 logo or GT, I would buy those also for sure!!

I think its way too large and looks exagerated, but a smaller one (like a 5" lenght ) would look nice
