      Right. I've never seen
      a red-jeweled CC front
      emblem until now. I'd
      guess it's an original
      maker's mistake where
      some rookie assembler
      popped in the wrong
      jewel.

      There actually are
      several types
      of "cross" emblems; my
      CC trunk emblem has
      mounting pins with
      palnuts, not the far-
      more-common chrome
      screws.

      The "cross" emblem of
      course
      represents "Crosley",
      which in turn is Old
      English meaning "the
      cross by the meadow" -
      a roadside shrine. The
      Crosley family motto
      translates from Latin
      into "In the cross I
      have confidence".

      Crosley isn't the only
      car having a religious
      connotation; I can
      think of Templar,
      Crusader, Santa Fe
      ("Holy Faith"), and
      Chrysler St. Regis.

      (On the other hand, we
      had the Studebaker
      Dictator!)

      And there was one
      American make (I forget
      which) that included a
      St. Christopher medal
      as standard equipment.
      Think that'd go over
      today?
