    Hi all car experts,

    I have recently bought these dealership signs from someone Dad's collections. I believe they are genuine as the seller is a really nice guy but not much else he can tell me. However, I don't know the history or exact origins of these signs. I would be deeply appreciate if someone can fill me with the knowledge. All I know is that they are from between 80s to 90s.

    Thanks
    Joe

    I would say the Ferrari and lamborghinis originate from Italy
    and the Porsche originated from Germany? LOL ;)

    Seriously though, not sure how you could ever find out what dealership they came from. Ebay is full of this type of stuff

    I do not believe the Ferrari sign is original. I worked in dealers many years so was around many. Never seen one with square corners and the lighted shields I believe all had 2 internal fluorescent tubes and raised letters. I could be wrong but don't recall ever seeing one like it.

    I agree. To me these are modern reproductions.
