    While watching Speed Channel today, a trivia question was asked,

    "What year was the "Bowtie" first used as an emblem for Chevrolet ?"


    The answer : 1913

    In 1909, one of the Chevrolet brothers was staying in a hotel in France, and noticed the design on the hotel room wallpaper. He tore off a corner and brought it back to the US with him, thinking it might be a good design for the company emblem.

    Wonder if that wallpaper is still in print?
