5 Points

If 6 points are better than 4 points, why does Chrysler's logo only have 5 points?

Gotta keep things in perspective.

6 points is not always > than 4 points. for instance, if you were to have 6 points on your license, I suspect you'd be w/o a license


Why Five you ask?

well:
Five is between 4 and 6 and is the third prime number. Because it can be written as 221+1, five is classified as a Fermat prime. 5 is the third Sophie Germain prime, the first safe prime, the third Catalan number, and the third Mersenne prime exponent. Five is the first Wilson prime and the third factorial prime, also an alternating factorial. Five is the first good prime. It is an Eisenstein prime with no imaginary part and real part of the form 3n − 1. It is also the only number that is part of more than one pair of twin primes. Five is a congruent number. Five is conjectured to be the only odd untouchable number and if this is the case then five will be the only odd prime number that is not the base of an aliquot tree.

Possible reasons:
1. Because the artist who designed could only count to 5
2. One point for each tire and the spare. (by rights one point should be smaller now to accurately reflect those "not quite a tire" spares)
3. Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra
4. Because like most mysteries in life, it is to be pondered over a beer. You should be thanking Chrysler for the opportunity. One beer for each point.... get to work

From allpar.com

The Pentastar was created by Robert Stanley, at the Lippincott & Marguiles design firm. He wanted, according to his blog entry, “something simple, a classic, dynamic but stable shape for a mark that would lend itself to a highly designed, styled product. What that meant, basically, was a classic geometric form. We wanted something that was not stolid. That’s the reason that we broke up the pentagonal form that became the Pentastar. It provides a certain tension and a dynamic quality.” [This was reversed by Trevor Creed].

The [original] Pentastar was selected from more than 800 suggestions that a team from the design firm of Lippincott & Margulies Inc. proposed to the company.
“We were looking for something that would not be too complicated for people to remember and still have a very strong, engineered look to it,” said Robert Stanley. “We wanted something people could look at and say, ‘This was not done freehand.’”

In Chrysler’s annual report, they noted “A new Corporate Identity Office was established to be concerned with the manner in which the company identifies and visually presents itself and its products to the public. The [pentastar] emblem portrayed on the cover was developed as part of this broad program.”

It first showed up in ads with the 1963 models, and started showing up on the 1963 cars behind the right front wheel, making its way to key blanks with the 1964 models. Prior to that, the Chrysler corporate logo was a pair of V-shapes, usually shown pointing to the right, part of Virgil Exner's "Forward Look" school of design. The new pentastar logo was also used on the front cover of the 1962 Annual Report — as an embossed cover (without any ink to set it off) — and on the back cover, in a deep blue.

In 1963, Bob Hope’s variety show (sponsored by the Chrysler Corporation) included opening graphics showing the segments of the Pentastar zooming into place with vroom-vroom noises, each piece accompanied by a callout of a brand - Plymouth, Dodge, Chrysler, Imperial, and Dodge trucks. However, Bill Watson wrote noted that the five points do not stand for the five car divisions; at the time, Chrysler sold cars (Valiant, Plymouth, Dodge, Chrysler, Imperial, Hillman, Sunbeam, Singer, Humber, Simca), trucks (Dodge, Fargo, DeSoto, Commer, Karrier, Barreiros), industrial and marine engines, boats, army tanks, air conditioners, heating systems, chemicals, plastics, missiles, electronics, and financial products. He also noted that the design would be recognizable no matter which way you looked at it, even if the design was flipped or looked at upside down.

They used the pentastar because the pentagram was already in use.

My original post was referring to use of Torx fasteners as opposed to phillips fasteners.

I was wondering of the older Jeeps, before big daddy chrysler took over, used ANY torx fasteners at all?

Then my mind drifted to the use of hexagonal nuts as opposed to square nuts... blah blah blah... and here we are today.

Any CJ owners got torx on their Jeep?
