I love automotive logos, and the following is the original sketch sheet of logo proposals for the Lancia marque.

This original sketch sheet was drawn by Count Biscaretti of Ruffia, who was involved with early Lancias and Vincenzo Lancia
drawings by Count Biscaretti, from 1911:

Ooh. These are great. It’s inspiring to see the art behind logos.
