Can we have both?

To me, a Ford without a motor under the hood nicknamed "Powerstroke" just aint in the cards. Its a name that is legendary to many and a punch line for cummins and duramax guys. Us Ford guys cant help that this motor named the Powerstroke (love it or hate) gave us this current competitive market that we are enjoying. With the soon arrival of the new 6.7L (code named "Scorpion), i hope Ford decides to keep the famous Powerstroke namebrand on it, but put a little twist in it. Why not weld the two together? While sitting in class today, i decided to doodle i sketch of a new motor badge. What do you guys think? Why not have the tried and true name with a little sting?

Power Stroke is a registered trademark of Ford and I have not heard anything about it going away when then new Ford built diesel is introduced...

Ford uses code names for programs all the time and rarely do they stick with the product/vehicle that they are associated with...

If you can do the sketch on a plain white piece of paper, I can put it into an embroidery file. I have the software to do that and my mom has a 6 needle embroidery machine.

Not recommended. Ford's trademark attorneys will send you a nastygram for the use of the words "Power Stroke" in your design. Maybe they'll work out a licensing fee with you though.

On one, it won't be worth it. If I was mass producing it, than yes. Technically speaking they could nail him for what he did just doodling, although you could argue artistic license(and for myself if I only did one). Otherwise Billet Badges would have been out of business long ago.
