had anyone ever noticed that the "ford motor company" script logo looks almost exactly like coca-colas?

(could someone post a picture of it?)

i was just wondering... which one came first?

The Chevrolet one seems awfully derivative.

The Coke script is called "Spencerian" and you can get it as a TT font.

The Ford script is the handwriting of Thomas Edison. Great friend of Herny, and he asked him to write out "Ford" for use as his logo. His penmanship can also be seen in the logo of his own company, GE.

I think they look pretty close to the same, but that's just my opinion!
