    That's why they modified it. There isn't a real font they used (that I know of.) If there is, then google is there for you to find it.

    rofl. has obviously posted that font because they have read the thread at this link - http://typophile.com/node/34205 which states that this is a close match font that would need some modifying.

    Others have also discussed it here - http://customize.org/groups/topic/11978

    Time for you to fire up Illustrator or Font Creator and play, I'd say

    *Bah... walked away in middle of typing this post, and of course, others have posted in this time, haha.

    Also.. looking at it again... I agree it looks very Avant Garde with changes to make it serif (obviously)...... that is the route I would personally go to re-create a similar font myself.

    Retro, pretty much if you want a font EXACTLY like that, you would have to edit some of the fonts or just make your own.
