Hood Ornaments Rerun

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.

    Very nice series on hood ornaments. Hope your computer returns to the well list. Very frustrating.

    Is the computer in the ICU???

      It’s moved out of the ICU and into recovery…I hope!

        But I’m still concerned about how “well” it is so when I can use it fully again I will be treading softly.
