Here’s a little bit of extra background information on Street Rod. It was just some information I came across long time ago and I wanted to share it.
Logical Design Works used the label California Dreams to release Street Rod and Street Rod 2.
Note the trademark sign in the upper right corner of the image.
On January 30, 1989 a trademark registration was filed for California Dreams. The first use of this trademark was on May 1, 1987.
The registration was cancelled on November 14, 1996, probably because LDW failed to file the necessary forms and fees before the 6 year deadline.
Because “A §8 Declaration of Continued Use is a sworn statement, filed by the owner of a registration, that the mark is in use in commerce.” and they didn’t do that so the trademark was cancelled by section 8.
Because LDW had a registered trademark they could have used “California Dreams®” but they used the unregistered trademark symbol ™ instead. Why? I don’t know.
Why the name “California Dreams”? It might have to do with the saying. “California Dream is the psychological motivation to gain fast wealth or fame in a new land.” The owner of Logical Design Works migrated from communist Poland to the free and wealthy United States. When you have this context in mind it isn’t hard to imagine why the name California Dreams was chosen. (disclaimer: unverified information)
