Overwhelmingly majority of the audience reviews disagree with you

The only way you could have swapped the badge would have been to simultaneously swap the engine for a 5.6L

This is "the best movie ever made". Love Love Love it on every level. The very end was the Best ever - Beautiful Sharon Tate was untouched by the Manson Family. She and her baby, and dear friends lived happily ever after.. What a beautiful fantasy-re-telling of the night of August 9, 1969.

But, we all know what really happened. Sharon Tate and 4 others and Sharon's 8 1/2 month old baby were brutally murdered. Sharon begged mercy for the life of her baby. The very next night (Aug 10) the Manson family brutally murdered another Los Angeles couple - Leno and Rosemary LaBianca. I lived within a 5 minute walk of the LaBianca house in Los Feliz.

I was concerned it would confuse the technician plus it just seemed like a stupid/phony idea. Great car though. Drove it for 3 years and sold it for what I paid

Saw it on cable last night. A great movie. Probably my new favorite Tarantino movie and I haven't like his more recent efforts. To me it was like an homage to Hollywood, to the movie business, to the 1970's. And maybe an homage to Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski who were living the Hollywood dream. Great acting, beautifully shot, great music, really captured the LA and Hollywood of the time. Loved the Hollywood happy ending too. If only ... who can say what would have been.

'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' was the worst movie of those nominated last year. It was slow, self important and dull.

This really was a fantastic movie. If you haven't seen it, and are looking for a movie that tells a tale, this a great one. It may be Tarantino's best.

I believe you're thinking of Reservoir Dogs or Jackie Brown.

Saw it last month on cable, really liked it. Really captured the time. Even the drive on Sunset, I am an old car buff and they were careful not to have cars in it made after 1969.
