New Badge - Saving 1st Gen

Hello everyone. I recently started a conversation about the possibility of having a new badge that could be awarded to certain individuals for exceptional acts of mechanical valor. As many of you know (for various reasons) the 1st generation cars are becoming increasingly rare. While there are still plenty on the road, but if my local salvage yard is any indicator, they are dying quick. For those of you with the v6 it is usually a catalyst/oil thing. for all others including the v6, more time on the road means move exposure for collision.
The conversation was started here but @hurddawgs personal build page was not entirely appropriate so at the suggestion of @Byakuya I started this thread.
I am asking anyone interested to please put your ideas forward and when we hit a critical mass it will be poll time. Some ideas were "Saved a 1st Gen", "1st Gen Reviver" "Saving a 1st Gen" and so on.

Two things:
1. What should it say?
2. What color should it be?



If you are not sure what I am talking about below are some examples.



No Longer Used:

<--huh?

Great idea @DrFeelGood you definitely deserve one as well as quite a few other 1st geners.

I like “Saved A 1st Gen” , and I think it should be some kind of blue, but I may be a little biased as far as color goes...

I'm in favor. I like "saved a first gen" or s"saving a first gen". As for color blue seems good to me.

This is a fun idea and I fully support it!!

@Byakuya uses an already existent template and (I am assuming) just adds text and changes color. A picture may be challenging.
This is my fast photoshop job...it may be biased a bit.



How about what its going to say?
And the color?

Just chiming in here quickly - I've no issue with shopping something with images or w/e, as I'm fairly proficient with PhotoShop and have been using it for over a decade. That template is incredibly easy to play around with colors/images/etc, so just let me know and I'll whip stuff up as time allows.

That being said, my only caveat is that we try to keep the badges in the same template/shape/style idea. When I originally revamped all the badges (why that weird super moderator and 6otm don't exist anymore), I tried to keep everything with the same theme and layout so the site remains more professional looking.

In addition, the wagon was only offered (in N.America) for the first gen. So it is commemorative as well. :wink:

Other suggestions for it the badge names...

1G Saver / Saved
1G Rescued
1G 6 Saved/Saver
1G 6 Saved from the crusher/wrecker

or kinda like the 6otm.....

..1G6S or 1G6R

As far as layout of the badge maybe something like this...

1G....
........6
..............Saved

So the "6" would be the stylized number 6 like in the 6otm. Without the periods
