The Chevrolet emblem is based off of a wallpaper design from Paris

When you think Chevy don't you think manly? Well, suprisingly, the design for the emblem of this many car company was inspired by dainty wallpaper from a hotel in Paris.  

There are several stories about the logo but this one is the most famous and popular.  It is said that the co-founder of Chevy, William Durant, saw the pattern on a wallpaper and fell in love with it. 

So next time you see a Chevy commercial with Eminem music playing in the background remember that the emblem originated on wallpaper in Paris. 

Oo lala!
