I saw a C5 Z06 in a parking lot here in Austin one time and it had 2 Z06 405HP emblems on the ***. It had a lot of other emblems all over the car also and it was some 50+ year old woman that got in to drive the car. I was just thinking how much attention do you really need to make the car look that crappy. My wife was with me and once we got of of hearing distance she said "why?"
This was on my '06Z. I placed it approx the same place it was on my ZR. I'm doing the same w/ the '08 when it arrives.
To each their own, but I think it looked factory, IMO...
And BTW, no woodgrain or blingy-type here

Replacing the Chevy emblem w/ the Z06 - courtesy of Jacob.
If you think Jacob's car looks 'tacky/ricer/etc', then you're IMO.
Badging up a car is "rice behaviour." Similiar to this Geo Storm with a Type R badge and Acura logo. The auto designers never sit back and say "how can we improve this car???....I know, I know, more badges!!!!" More Fun Examples
Once upon a time I had an actual Integra Type-R. Three times I went out to the car after working out at the gym and found that some punk had pried the factory red Acura emblems off with a screwdriver. Of course, they messed up the nose and trunk each time they did it.
At one point I thought about buying a spare set and leaving them in a plastic bag on the antenna just to save the trip to the body shop.
