    I know where mine was bought new (I'm only the 2nd owner). It's a dealer about 80 miles to the north. The dealer is still there but changed ownership (and name) about 20 years ago.

    I don't know which to say is more Cool. The dealer key fob and an actual potmetal dealer nameplate in good condition are pretty equally Awesome! The only ones I have are just stickers, and no matching fobs.

    I remember those pot metal dealer plates. Always thought it was horrible how they screwed them to the car. After a couple years, every car with one had 2 big rust blotches on the deck lid under each screw and a couple years later, it would fall off and leave a pair of 1/2" rust holes. Later they all went to stick on metal, then plastic and eventually, most went to stickers.

    I bought my car new and I really don't remember if the dealers sticker was on the car or not. If it was it was taken off the day after delivery. They did not use metal plates.

    I still have my metal dealer tag. I cleaned it up and applied a magnetic strip to the backside. I can put it on for a show the take it off afterwards.

    Some Dealers even used studs and pal nuts on their potmetal nameplates! I have one like that. I actually chiseled a chunk of the trunklid off to get it since the keys were long gone and I wasn't about to brave going thru the back seat of that junkyard derelict 79 New Yorker. I'm also looking for one from the local dealership for my 79. I have a few from it's original name, and from it's current name, but I don't have one to put on my car from the name it went by when my car was sold. Bob Pugh Dodge Norwalk Ohio. It was sold new there and traded in for a 4x4 the following winter and sold again off the used lot. I'm the third owner. I know it had to have one at some point because while new cars don't always get a dealer nameplate, the practice around here is that every used car gets one from whoever sells it the next time. So you can never count on one of these plates to indicate an original dealership around here unless you know the history of the car. Sorry for kinda making this about my situation, but I thought that last part was worth mentioning and required the whole story.
