Default WOG Plaque

Buddy Luce, who started the Wanderlodge division of Blue Bird, determined that symbolically, the bird should always face to the right. Just a thought if you care to keep the Luce familys' historical influence on Wanderlodge in mind.

Royal,

I would be more concerned with keeping the historical influence of the Wanderlodge Owners Group forum and as I said in an earlier post why should we be like everyone else and the WOG forum logo was set up this way to start with, the shirts and decals are already this way, why change it now.

John, I agree it is not practical to try and change it now.

Default Bird Direction

That's interesting about Buddy Luce wanting the bird to face to the right. The buses have them facing forward on both sides (one right and one left) for obvious reasons. I think I like it facing left or forward more. Regardless of direction though- I love the good old Blue Bird logo!

Sometimes the Bird faced to the left.... for example the Bird Clocks in our 73 and 84 1/2:

Either way, a bird in the hand is better then two overhead...
