Non SVT vehicles wearing SVT badges

I was curious about the opinions of you guys on this topic.

I belong to another forum, where people use SVT badges on their NON SVT Ford vehicles.
Specifically a Ford Ranger, with a roots blower, some engine work, exhaust etc.

This specific guy has SVT paint scheme, SVT billet pedals, "powered by SVT" on his engine etc.

I have tried to explain to him that SVT never made a production Ranger, but he insists that if they did make one, it would be just like his truck.

I have told him numerous times, that he has one of the coolest and fastest Rangers I have ever seen, but it is not an SVT.

i voted other

no.. its not okay for people to pose... but at the same time, i have svt euro wheels, that have the svt lettering in them... but if people ask me about it, i tell them that its not an svt, and that i bought the rims from someone that has an svt...

i would NEVER, EVER, EVER badge the back of my car as an svt... EVER!!!! that.. is just wrong

It is very "Civic with a Type R badge that is green and not a hatchback."

No, its not okay.

I paid $22,500 for my SVT. I loved it, and still miss her. I needed a truck...no new Lightning were in my area...hence the Ranger.

For that $22,500, I got my HID's, and my leather heated seats, and my Mazda inspired suspension, and yada yad yada. I also got into an exclusive club an SVT owners. I lurked on this site, but never had anything to contribute. I know how to search, so I never needed to ask a question either...

I had my SVTF from 7/04 to 12/06. I was an active lurker the whole time :)

I'm just gonna go and put a mazdaspeed badge on my Focus....

If its not an SVT its not an SVT, you're just inviting trouble branding your car something it is not.

I saw an svt symbol on the back of a stock F-150 before. I couldnt stop laughing about it. I dont think its right to do something like that. Like frush said, its very poserish.

You're sure it was a STOCK F-150? The SVT Lightning is an F150

There is an older Silverado around here that says "454 SS" on the bed and sure enough, it has a 454 under the hood. Watch out for those.
