Congratulations to Eric Sonnier!!!!! Eric answered our daily Chevrolet trivia question correctly. The question was- “How was the famous “Chevrolet Bowtie” emblem thought up?” Well, this one is a “History with a Mystery”. Answer- No one knows the absolute truth but there are 2 stories out there. The first story is the Chevrolet founder, William Durant saw the “bowtie” design on some wallpaper in a French hotel. The second story is, Durant saw the design in a newspaper and thought it would be a great emblem for a car. Whatever is the truth, one thing is for sure, the Chevrolet Bowtie is one of the most recognized emblems in the world today.
