Default My own trivia - naming engines

I just thought of my own trivia for you guy's. What manufacurers had a character or symbol to go along with there engines or tractors. Such as the Case eagle or the Avery Bulldog. What else was there? I know of a few others, but dont want to take them all.

Waterloo Boy tractors - a boy wearing a straw hat. Gilson Johnny On The Spot engines - picture of a boy's face. Gaar - Scott steam traction engines had a tiger standing over a double globe.

there was Tecumseh- tecumseh actually existed as a indian.
this explains the reason for a indian head and the tecumseh company's name on there engine decals...or way before they switched tecumseh decals to a diferent look if my ears heard right...

Coldwell - small high speed single, It had a bronze bear on the oil fill. The bear often sold for more that the entire engine would bring at an auction!
