That was all the hockey we got last year. Someone with more time needs to post a selection of marquees here in your thread, and then you can set it up as a poll so we can vote. Or even better is a grouping of some obscure ones and conduct a little quiz, see who can identify them all first.

Good: Jaguire and Rolls Royce (three dimensional!), BMW (classy "coat of arms"), Ferrari (simple and looks really good on a red car), Aston Martin (Aviator fight wings), Bugatti EB (I don't understand the backwards E, but it's neat), Firebird (Old Style), Porche (classy "coat of arms"), Maserati (triton, powerful, simple), Vauxhall (it's practically my favorite animal), Original Viper logo

Bad: Kia (second-grade design contest?), Hyundai (plain bad), Fiat (how original), Opel (Embroidered chest logo? I'm OPEL MAN!), Saturn (too big and busy), Maybach (I'm confused), Alfa Romero (I'm not sure why I don't like it),

Ugly: Scion, Subaru, nuff said.

Isn't the BMW badge supposed to harken back to their beginnings as aircraft engine builders? I believe it is meant to symbolize a propellor.

Here's a halfway decent list of emblems/logo's. The list itself isn't the most up to date as to who owns who, but this list is.
