    Chrome looks good, i understand you don't have to change out the rear one.
    Apparently you can just remove the gold overlay and you have a chrome one waiting underneath.

    Chevrolet has been using the golden bowtie for over 40 years. My friend's 1971 Chevrolet pickup had a gold bowtie on the grill. IMO it's a classic look.

    Even the original 1953 Corvette had a gold bowtie in the flag.

    GMC guys keep the GMC logo red, Ford guys keep the blue oval blue.

    I understand what you are saying about the gold being classic.

    This statement about them all being gold is too global and incorrect.

    From the GM media website: Many variations in coloring and detail of the Chevrolet bowtie have come and gone over the decades since its introduction in late 1913, but the essential shape has never changed. In 2004, Chevrolet began to phase in the gold bowtie that today serves as the brand identity for all of its cars and trucks marketed globally. The move reinforced the strength of what was already one of the most-recognized automotive emblems in the world. want to read more: http://media.gm.com/autoshows/Chevro...02_bowtie.html

    I know for a fact the the 1995 silverado ss came with a black bowtie outlined in red. My wife's 2002 cavalier came with a blue bowtie with a chrome outline that happened to match the color of the car perfectly. The 1998 cavalier that she had was black and came with a red bowtie. I had been told multiple times while growing up that at one time the different bowtie colors meant different things. Blue= luxury and red= performance. I could not find any documentation to prove this true. So, please do not ask me to prove it, as I can not. I think that as time went on GM used the color bowtie that would look ok with the paint color. A blue bowtie on her black cavalier would have looked terrible.
