They aren't re-imagining themselves, the reimagining happened two decades ago. Its just an "official" change to a change that has already happened. Hence why this is a meaningless discussion. The "re-imagining" would be if they put the pentastar [i]back[/i.

1997 LHS. No Pentastar:



1996 Concorde. No Pentastar:



1996 Town & Country. No Pentastar:



You guys are talking like Fiat ripped the pentastar off of a 2014 Chrysler. Chrysler stopped using the Pentastar LONG before anybody else had any input into how they did business.
Pentastar has been with mopar since 1963 also macfan has a banner of jeep with a pentastar hmmm!

You can put anything on a banner. The only way you'll see the Pentastar on a Jeep is if you put one on it yourself.

Re: Put the Pentastar back on Chrysler and MoPar

Macfan, you can agree to disagre but I still don't think the Pentastar is what MAKES chrylser. You can have the greatest symbol/icon in the world but if the quality is crab, it won't last long. As for Chrylser helping families for college, maybe that was for families that lived near Detroit or who worked for Chrylser but I grew up in the U.P. and we didn't hear/get crap from them (neither Chevy/Ford). Like what you want, others don't have to. People can complain up and down on they don't want things to change, doesn't mean they get what they want. I'm glad Chrysler/Pentastar helped you and other in some way and you don't want it to change, I just don't see it that way nor do I spend my time worrying/concerned about something that won't affect me in my daily life and how I go about things.

Anything is better than a blue ovel or a bow tie, but my big brother is now a prancing horse and a hellcat!!!

But they haven't put it on their cars in 20 years. Thats a fact.

Just because its on the building in Detroit and on some banner (which is obviously not a Chrysler produced banner because the "Jeep" script is not correct) is meaningless. They haven't put it on their cars in 20 years, so why are people saying that now Fiat is taking the logo away? They are just making official the change that Chrysler themselves made 20 years ago.

Sorry, but my banner actually came from the sales material that Chrysler sent to dealers. The banner is a flag that was supposed to be flown out in the new car lot. Several dealers in mid Michigan are still flying these yet today. It is the real Chrysler thing. I also have a poster that was supposed to be displayed in the dealer showroom. And your 20 year statement is not 100% correct either. All Mopar parts and part shipping boxes still have the Pentastar logo on them yet today.

Yeah and how long ago was that flag sent to dealers? 20+ years ago.

Who cares whats on parts and shipping boxes...look at what they display on the cars. No Chrysler has had a pentastar on it in ~20 years. Who cares what logo they put on part and shipping boxes.

Re: Put the Pentastar back on Chrysler and MoPar

I am not going to reposed to this thread anymore. Obviously some people do not have roots in or can appreciate the history of the American Automobile and its workers. FYI, I have and continue to collect memorable on the American Automobile and its workers mainly so I won't forget my roots. And yes I am one of those idiots that put a pentastar on the lower passenger dog leg of my Jeep because I am proud of what that symbol stands for. I have never heard of GM considering dropping the bowtie just because it is more than 20 years old. Here is something you may want to do in your spare time. Watch the movie, "With Babies and Banners". You can find it online. While it deals with GM it deals with the area I grew up in and you can get a better idea why I feel the way I do about the history of the American Automobile. As far as I am concerned the moderators can close this thread now as I mistakenly thought the people of Jeep Garage could see the importance of the Pentastar like they did over on Allpar. My mistake.

Re: Put the Pentastar back on Chrysler and MoPar

Chevy is still using the bowtie. I could see the argument if all of a sudden GM tried to drop the bowtie. My point was that Chrysler stopped putting the pentastar on their cars 20 years ago, so why is this a conversation now?

A logo does not make a company. Companies have had many logos over the years, they come and go they evolve and change. The Pentastar is not the original Chrysler logo, if anything the logo they use now is more historically significant than the pentastar.

I know you're proud of the company, but IMHO you take it to a level that I would consider zealotry. Its just a company, it didn't give you life.

Re: Put the Pentastar back on Chrysler and MoPar

The Chrysler HQ building still has the big pentastar at the top. I think it would be hard to change that since its built into the structure and design of the whole top floor of the building.
