Over the past few weeks, there has been a huge number of upset Mopar fans taking to the various social networks to voice this displeasure with the new company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles removing the familiar Pentastar logo from the Chrysler Group materials. The logo has been removed from various corporate structures around the Detroit area, including the sign at the entrance to the Chrysler Group headquarters compound. Through thick and thin, brand additions, brand discontinuations and new logos for the various brands within the Chrysler Group, the Pentastar has been long been the symbol of the Chrysler Group – but no longer. With the new company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) comes a new logo and with that new logo, the Pentastar has been removed from pretty much everything shy of the headquarters itself, where a 2 story tall Pentastar comprised of glass looks over I75 in Auburn Hills.

This is not the first time, though, that the Chrysler Group has been without the Pentastar. During the mess that was the Daimler-Chrysler era, the Pentastar was not used from 1998 through 2007, when it was brought back after the Daimler years.

Our question of the week is pretty simple. Are you upset that FCA did away with the Chrysler Group logo?
