    ??? ??? (Badge).

    With his new Hako in the house, a friend commented recently on JAF badges. I'd never really paid them any attention, except to stick the standard issue adhesive plastic one on my tool box, and perhaps to note the full front grille badges - as opposed to the rear window stickers (there is a placement etiquette) were the domain wing-mirrored oji-san. They seem to show up on cars outside of Japan too, often strangely placed. These days when you join, you get the rear window sticker:



    If you pay extra you get the front badge (plastic):



    Presumably, if you paid extra on your extra around the 40-year anniversary you could buy the commemorative front grille badge, to either fit to your car or place on your desk on the included very tasteful wood stand (impress your friends at parties!):



    Some get a nice aged look:



    Rare in good condition, and perhaps over USD500 these days the 1964 Tokio Olympics one is pretty neat (brass & enamel):



    No idea if I will fit it or not - not being a right-wing oji-san - but I picked up this nicely aged Tokio Olympics version for a fraction of what it should have cost:



    Assume there's more variations out there too. Neko.

    Thanks for sharing! The Olympics one is definitely a neat piece of history.

    The Olympic badge is very cool. Will have to grab some sort of JAF badge for the Hako in the future...

    I picked up one off ebay a few years back in a bit of a bandwagon jumping exercise and I've no idea if its legitimate or not but I do know that its pressed tin plate on a plastic disc. I know this because it came apart one time :?

    Anyway, it currently resides on my zed but once it sells it'll make its way onto my Hardtop Galant.

    I'm another one who likes a nice badge or emblem.

    Here's a couple of JAF-related ones on the grille of my 432R replica project car:

    Can we hear a bit more about the "rear window placement etiquette?"

    I was hoping no one would ask that. Not sure. But, I think it is lower right corner of rear window. Or it might be lower left corner... Either way, it is one lower corner of the rear window. The back of the sticker used to have placement locations. The JAF website probably has their suggested locations for the countless stickers we have (registration, shrine attendance / blessing, insurance, seat-belts, parking approval, AC gas, etc.) all listed somewhere... One more Tokyo Olympics:



    Neko.

    One of my JAF badges, boxed diecast badge with a separate sticker. I have earlier aluminium badges as well but this is the only new one.
