Too cool, learn new stuff every day here. I was looking at a local Nash about a month ago and it had one of these on the hood. It also looked like the girl would come loose from the wings with two screws if you wanted to seperate it for a different look.

Here's a not so good picture of the one on my 55 Packard Patrician. Nothing really exciting about it, but it's a definate pedestrian killer!! This sucker is sharp! If the 4500# car doesn't get you, the chrome skewer on the hood will!!

I was once told that hood ornaments were no longer made because of the danger they posed to pedestrians. That's why anything after the 50s are these wimpy little things with springs on them that pop off if hit. Don't know if that's true or not, but I can see someone pitching a bitch about it.

Here's one I got off the HAMB. Don't remember who took the shot, but it look's like some of Kirk's work. If I'm wrong, I'm sure the owner will chime in........

The Nethercutt Collection in Sylmar, CA has an incredible selection of ornaments on the mezzanine floor of the museum.

Follow the 'san sylmar' and then 'mezzanine' link...
http://nethercuttcollection.org/index2.html

Also check out their collection of early restored cars and early mechanical musical instruments.

One of the best places to take a tour when visiting the San Fernando Valley. No charge, guided tour by reservation.
