Default Jake Logo on an '04 CE Vert

Added this to my 2004 LeMans Commemorative Edition Convertible, as an homage to Corvette Racing's 2001/2002/2004 LeMans wins:

An excellent history regarding the whole "Jake thing."

Truthfully as a guy who's strayed away from Corvettes, since ownership in 1965, due in large part to my general dislike of the C3 and C4 offerings, I didn't get the logo or it's connection to the Corvette until now !

Purchasing a new 2013 Grand Sport, and enjoying the hell out of it, has hopefully put me back in the "good graces" of the Corvette world - after a long absence !!

Thanks again for the write-up.

I could be reaching here, but Jake reminds me of the glove box button on my C2...
