Pontiac had the chief ornaments...they are way cool. 40's and 50's Chief hood ornaments had a light-up effect as well. Olds Rocket hood ornaments are sweet too and early Plymouth are pretty unique.

This was on ebay about six or seven years ago, I wish I had emptied my savings account to buy it. Apparently it was from a "safe" driving club in england some time in the twenties. It even lit up! It always reminded me of the Idskedarian hoon ornament. One of the coolest things I've ever seen. John
