Chevrolet
, also known as Chevy, was founded by race car driver Louis Chevrolet and ousted GM founder William C. Durant on November 3, 1911. General Motors acquired Chevrolet in 1918. 

Legend has it the Chevrolet bow tie logo was introduced by Durant in late 1913 when, as a world traveler in 1908, he saw the pattern as a wallpaper design in a French hotel.  But as legends go, some report Durant first saw it in a newspaper, while he and his wife vacationed in Hot Springs, Virginia around 1912.  Or yet another possibility was a knock off copy of Coalettes brand coal.  What's your theory?
