I saw this one at Viva Las Vegas last year, and I thought someone had cast a one-off. I learned later that it was available in the past as an after-market hood ornament. Since I can cast metals, It got my juices flowing. For some reason that ring resonates with me, and I'm imagining a woman reclining in the ring, with her hair blowing behind her.

In some of my research for the Wavecrest Woody Car Show at Moonlight Beach, Encinitas next month, I came across this photo that I had never seen before. A classic hood ornament for a woody. I have seen custom trophies with a surfer on a board, but not one in this serene "Pose on the Nose."
I am not sure it would go over on our cars, but it surely stood out. Girls surf, that is a given, so this sculpture looks like the action nose riding photo.
