Just found this online whilst I was trying to identify a logo on a vintage car door ashtray.

Can anyone identify this ? It is a swivel door ashtray with what looks like a radiator in the middle and wings each side.

Your help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers 

 

 

Welcome to Neowin!

 

We actually have an auto-related section. You might be able to find someone who recognizes your object by posting a new topic about it there since it seems to be a car part:

Oh yeah! I remember the second link very well. Times and technology have changed throughout the years. Thanks for the retro reminder! (Y)

They used to cover a lot of Windows topics back in the day when I found them. Windows XP (Whistler) coverage.

I found neowin like 5 minutes ago because I was looking up ways to bypass my schools security system.

I don't remember exactly how or when I stumbled into Neowin, but I remember that after Windows XP's RTM I followed a few websites regularly reading on XP/Microsoft related developments and news. 

But the definite news piece I remember that got me hooked on this website was the coverage Tom did about the leak of Windows 2000 source code. 😅 Ever since, I visit this website almost daily but didn't register as a member until 2008, mostly because my background is finance, I did not have many answers to be posted on the forums. Rather, forums were helping me much. A long time has passed since I found Neowin, but this site is my "go to" website for tech updates. Thanks 😊

The fun days :) I miss those.. To me, those were the golden days for Microsoft. Fun Whistler builds.. hmm.. did 2211 ever leak ;)

 

Edit: Well, it sure it!

https://betawiki.net/wiki/Windows_XP_build_2211

 

I know what I'm doing tonight! 

 

Longhorn 3663 still never leaked.. That's insane how that build never leaked, lol 

 

But for ###### n gigs.. I remember when 3718 leaked.. it leaked AFTER 4008, which wasn't very stable. Everyone wanted 3718 because they heard rumors that it was very stable (for an alpha anyway). Then someone stole the ISO from WinBeta and it was released by xBetas!. ahhhhh!!! The fun days of IRC, haha.

I bookmarked a few of sources for Windows XP visual styles. I forgot about most sites when social media consolidated/cannibalized everything into a handful of platforms. They have gotten too big and too noisy so I've started remembering the rest of the internet I used to know.

Been searching for ways to cable cut back.  Service and channel choices are poor.  We do better on youtube.
