Bob and Lyn Englert developed a Fiero specific car show name badge back in the 1990's and I have always worn one at car shows and events. They are a little known source in the Fiero world but since I just ordered three more badges thought that I would share this source with everyone. Their badges are machine cut engraved acrylic and are only $8.00 ea. plus shipping in all colors except silver and gold that are $9.50 ea. Its a quality product at a good price and it makes it easy meeting up with folks at cars shows.
Bob and Lyns company is CG Engraving: http://www.cgengrave.com/signs-badges/

The badges look like this but they can do other layouts:


This is just a plug to share a good vendor as I have no relation to this business. Some people at the shows asked me where I buy my badges and now you know! If you hve interest just email Lyn at lyn@cgengrave.com and she will promptly help with your needs.

I'm glad to see they are still in business! I'll have to get updated tags for us!

The Englerts are still in business but I believe at this point don't do the car shows anymore. Probably a good idea to get the badges now . Best part is that they use the Fiero name and will arrange the badge in any color that you like. I last purchased from them 12 years back at Ed Parks Fiero factory swap meet and had trouble locating them for our new badges (when we show up in the rag top that is nearing completion).
A special thanks to Paul McKibben (Fiero Sails) who gave me the info to track them down. Lyn was excellent to deal with on my new order. Their quality is top notch and their prices are still reasonable.

Thanks to Dennis for mentioning our Fiero badges on the forum. Lyn and I would love to provide these badges to any interested owners. I hope to update our website soon to provide more info on colors and text options.

If anyone can suggest an east coast Fiero show that would be worthwhile for us to attend with our badges and engraving equipment, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

We anticipate 30+ cars at Carlisle this year for GM Nationals but that show draws thousands of all kinds of cars; however, I am not sure how steep the vendor fee is? I would think it would be worth it beyond Fiero business though.

Carlisle is usually the biggest East Coast show and it's starting to grow again. Even if you can't make the trip, would you want to send some flyers and maybe donate a gift certificate or two for our raffle?

So glad you guys are still making badges ;-) (I know I said that already but I'm excited! Once you get your site updated, I'll be putting in my order!

I still have one of Bob's badges for my first 85GT bought back in '93. I don't remember what year I got the badge, but it was back in the 90's at the Fiero Factory Swap meet. I also had one for my 87GT but lost it.

Bob, it's been a while. I think back about the time Megan started at Ga. Tech, but I'd love to invite you to the 20th Anniversary of RFTH from Helen, Ga. to The Dragon and back. Looks like we're going to have a good showing this year.

I sure wish I still had my Fiero to do RFTH! I loved those drives and always enjoyed the people we met.

I think we can find you a loaner. Lots of the old-timers are going to be there.

Thanks for finding Bob and Lyn, Dennis! I have a couple of badges that they made for me years ago. I came across one of them the other day, and wondered what ever happened to them. Nice to see you posting, Bob!
