Holden badges on Chevs.

Putting a Chev badge on a late Commodore is popular amongst some people in Australia.
In the USA, you could order Holden badges from the options list for your new Chev SS: https://www.chevrole...
I wonder how much better they would have sold if they just called them Holdens with Holden badges on them?

That picture tells the truth.
But are they still a w*nker if they put a Holden badge on a Chev that was made by Holden and sold as a Chev?

Old is good.

I had a Holden badge on my 1937 Chev, made before the 48-215 was even thought about.

"Junk is something you throw out 3 weeks before you need it"

This is one of the most argued things on the net. Fact is Holden exported V8 and V6 Commodores to the middle east as Chevrolets. So the badges that people are putting on these cars are the same that Holden put on them to send to the middle east and latter to the USA.

As I see it putting a Chev badge on a Commodore is no different to putting a GTS badge/stripe on a non Monaro , GT stripes on a Falcon, HSV badge on a non HSV etc etc.

When you consider how many "tribute" GTS, GTR, SLR and GT there are out there, there are a lot more "wankers" than just the Commodore owners.

So next time you are at a car show etc and one of these tributes is there, tell the owner they are the same as the person who sticks a Chev badge on his Commodore.

Did they export them with Holden v8 engines or Chev v8 engines?

What you say doesn't hold water. Yes, people put GTS and GT badges etc, on Australian road driven cars to replicate Australian road driven cars. The chev badge thing isn't people putting chev badges on their Australian driven cars to replicate Australian driven cars. Two different donkey's.
My Monaro comes with the Australian fitted chev 350, but you will never see me putting any chev badges near it, let alone on it. People with the chev badge thing happening do it for themselves. They don't do it to please the masses and I personally don't care what they put on their car, it's their car.
I'd like to see you tell someone at a car show what you think of their chev badge and their answer. No wonder you didn't sign in.

Well said Keith. I haven't seen a Monaro with a Vauxhall badge on it in Australia, Why don't they put them on. But I have seen an Astra. And yes no wonder they didn't sign in.

Have seen two, but they are imports. They were at the Monaro nationals a few years ago. Have also seen a Chevrolet SS coupe from the middle east imported back.

So its ok to put a GTS badge on a Premier wagon, even though its not a GTS, or a HSV Badge on a Commodore even though its not a HSV, but as it replicates a car on OUR roads, but not ok to put a Chev/Pontiac/Vauxhaul badge on a Commodore because its exported.

My point about telling someone about their car at a car show was:

If you are the type of person that continually goes on about Chev badges on Commodores (I do not and by the sounds of it you also do not) and there are plenty of them that do, that they should hold those who put GTS badges on vans, wagons etc in the same light.

They do not as they like to think this is just something young people do. You hear them all the time "fully modified by putting a Chev badge on"....."in our day we did more than just stick a Chev badge on"...

And back in the 70s and 80s there were lots of HK Holdens with Chev badges because they had the 307 engine, glad you are happy with your choice, but if you put a Chev badge on, as you said your choice. Just wish people would stop going off at the people who have decided to put a Chev badge on their Holden.

mmmmm well, lets see
I remember I saw a HQ Statesman in the middle east when I was based there(ADF) and it had a chev badge on it.The HJ Statesman that were exported were badge Cadillac to a number of countries, and the HJ Holden was badge a "Mazda" with a Rotary Engine in Japan and I did see one in Singapore, (dont know WHY they made them)
The HT-HG Monaros were badge SS weren't they ?
YES I have a 1975 HJ Premier and yes its a Premier and yes, the 253 died and had a heart transplant to a TPI 350 chev,
There is no way in HELL im going to put a Chev badge on my dear old Dads car, IT still has the 3 "Primer" badges and a V8 badge on the boot lid. Yes its a Holden But there are NO Holden badges on the car only on the ID plate in the Engine bay. The Holden Lion Logo are on the hub caps
So does this make my car a "Holden car " or a "Premier car" ?????
The answer is NO
Its MY CAR lol
