    I.D. old car logo

    I.D. old car logo 8th Oct 16 at 10:32 PM
    I have found a vintage steering wheel, it is what might be known as a "Brooklands steering wheel" (or in the style of a Brooklands) with 3 arms radiating from the centre and each arm made up of 4 rods. The 3 arms are not equidistant i.e. more of a T shape than a Y shape.

    If you google brooklands steering wheel you will see plenty images most of them with 4 arms, each arm made up of 5 rods,

    In the centre of this steering wheel, is a logo that I do not recognise, it looks like inter connecting facebook "f" (eff) without the crossline cutting through the f . on one side the effs are blue on the other the effs are silver

    Sort of like a truncated partial U from the Unilever logo
    and these effs are interlocking at the centre of the logo.

    I am wondering, obviously, what this logo is.

    I have not got it with me here, so I am describing this from memory of earlier today. I am also 'gadget' and 'technology' poor, i..e. I don't have a wizzbang computer and phone, I have no way of uploading an image at this time. Nor even in the near future.

    I have looked at "old car logos" on google and have not found it, maybe it is a after market steering wheel manufacturer's logo?

    A great description - but really you need to post a picture of it.

    If you can post on here you can upload a picture, tinypic.com or similar.

    Its simple.

    That looks like a Triumph or Standard/Triumph.

    These people have been making after market wheels like that for ages.

    Hey, I can't see your pic link (old browser, told you, no wizzbang computer here)


    But what I did do was search for a TR4 steering wheel and I got this...
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Triumph-TR4-and-TR4A-steering-wheel-/161708177971
    I reckon this is it,
    I forgot to look at it today when I was there, but yeah, this is it.

    Thank you.
