I really admire the variety and creativity of vintage hood ornaments.

Some originals have survived in special collections, most are lost.
Pedestrian security killed the ornaments...

Hopefully we will be able to show many more here?

Please contribute your most interesting, strange or simply beautiful photos of hood ornaments.
