As the computer is still in the sick bay I am running re-runs of past posts. I felt like doing cars and car shows as they are always popular. Classic cars ultimately mean classic hood ornaments; they don’t make them like these anymore! This post was originally done in April 2014.
Revisiting – Hood Ornaments
Whenever I go to any car show I am drawn to the vehicles themselves but also the details of each vehicle. The wheels, the dashboards, the fuzzy dice, the engines, and the hood ornaments. Once upon a time many cars had works of art as their hood ornaments but as time went by what with aerodynamics and fuel economy – not to mention little thieves who ripped off said ornaments – the era of fancy hood adornment slowly faded.
But when the classic, and some newer models, cars are shown I am in hood ornament nirvana! Here are a few as previews to the cars that I will be bringing back once I decide which beauties to feature. Classic? Modern? Hot Rod? Custom? So many to chose from…stay tuned.
