Typeface for 'Automobile Design' logo!

Some help guys..

Need a suitable typeface for this logo.

It says 'Transportation & Automobile Design'

The letters TAD.

Now this is a logo I'd want to see on my car. Bells, this is the look I'd want to see on my car! But a face that goes with the logo without looking like garish go-faster stripes... is that even possible?

I know! Im struggling here....
I don't want it to be a typical all caps italic font.

Hmm... maybe some upright bold expanded sans? Small-caps, even?

I'm getting an "early vector art" vibe: Ultra Bronzo

I can see two things:

1. Two or three lines in a fat, wide sans under the T, but the logo already looks like it's moving at a cop-scaring clip to the right.

2. One line in a tyre-track face, like Rich Gast's Eagle GT II underneath the logo.

FWIW, the Wide width of the current Typophile featured face, Condor, looks like this:

@kentlew: How does this look?
@Nick: How can I try Ultra Bonzo without buying it?
@Sii Daniels: I didn't quite get you.

Yeah, I'm with Kent, Condor (italic) would fit nicely.

Village has an online type tester.

I go with a rock solid sans. Like Alright Sans, Sense, or the like - but bolder and all caps. At least as a starting point.
