Cute Little Cars
While most in our group appreciated the desserts offered by the Coach Insignia Restaurant last weekend, I appreciated the name, and its position atop the GM World Headquarters. I was kind of surprised at the number of people in our group who commented things like "oh, look at all the cute little cars on the chocolate!"
Cars? Well, the first problem there is that it's not a car - it's a stagecoach. The "Coach" insignia. Get it?
The Coach Insignia is exactly that - the insignia of a coach. The Fisher Body Company began by building stagecoaches and eventually started supplying car bodies (primarily Cadillacs) to GM in the early 1900's. The insignia indicated that these were the very best General Motors offered.
I still remember our 1981 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, with its "Body by Fisher" Coach Insignia on the door sills, indicating it was one of GM's best.
Fisher didn't really make these little chocolate desserts, but if you ask my wife Suz, she'll say the chocolate was the best!
