We are trying to run a logo contest in a sticky thread but it doesn't seem to be getting much attention in there, so let's try it here.  Winner gets a free t-shirt with the new CarSPIN logo.

TurboDan may want to set a time limit (like a week or two) and then we'll vote on them in a poll.  Let's see what everyone's got.

Could be, but it could also be a Ford GT.

I actually think it's a GT40.  But I digress.  It's cool no matter what.  I hope others post some logos too and not just Chris and me.  Mine will get destroyed in a vote and I don't want to be alone.  :lol:

Yeah, it's esentially a Mk1 GT40, but stylized to be more generic for a logo. I do a number of Tshirt lines with similar artwork: http://www.cafepress.com/adesso

I think the logo needs to emphasise the 'Spin' part of the name.

If my InDesign was working, I'd be all over this.
2. 1995 Saturn SL2 5-speed, 126,500 miles. 5,000 miles in two and a half months. That works out to 24,000 miles per year if I can keep up the pace.

I don't care about all that shit.  I'll be going to college to get an education at a cost to my parents.  I'm not going to fool around.

How about this?  It's simple and would look real good on a black t-shirt.
