  1. I think the change is good for the brand.

    I don’t think this results in a loss of history, rather a division, a seperation from then and now. It would be naive to pretend things are the same since GM’s creation, and I think a logo change represents how far the product has come, whether you like yoyo or not.

  2. A new logo for GM is like a new flag for a country – you lose a part of (if not all) of its history and familiarity. (That is, if the new one misses out its hammer and ball.)

    I’d recommend to just leave it as it is, but hey, who am I against a profit-based commercial company?
