Default 260 Roadster Going Dual Badge

Something like this has probably been done before in the go-fast boat world, but in my experience it's a first, http://boatermouth.com//index.php?vi...ntent&Itemid=8.

guess that would be like a Camaro or Firebird in the automotive world, same boat different trim package. Looks good though and ya cant really go wrong with either brand. Unfortunately in the boat world its usually done by competing companies by splashing.

Yeah, I think it's pretty common in the automobile world. I don't know if this is correct, but I was told that Lexus LX 450 SUV was essentially a prettied-up and re-badged Toyota Land Cruiser.

Both the LX450 and the LX470 were essentially re-badged Land Cruisers with some extra goodies - just like the Lexus GX I have is a glorified 4Runner.

Thanks for the clarification/amplification. I didn't know that about the 470.

I owned a 300 and later a 330. I have nothing against my Honda Ridgeline but, darn, I miss them both.

Matt, search Chief and Active Thunder for some soap opera reading here on OSO.

In short, Chief; when it was alive, had a brief marketing marriage with Active Thunder. It ended in divorce, albeit everyone is still friends. It was the 37AT.
