Ornaments of the Hood


This is my very first Alphabe-Thursday, and this week's letter is "O".  So, I was having a hard time coming up with a subject that began with "O" until I started looking through my online folders of pictures and remembered I had taken some shots of hood ornaments at the Waukesha Old Car Show at Frame Park earlier this month.  I love how hood ornaments back in the day were sleek and Art Deco in nature, like small sculptures.  So enjoy these few hood ornament photos, and I'll be back to Alphabe-Thursday next week for "P".

  5. Welcome to our group! You are going to love it here!

    Almost as much as I love these hood ornaments. The chrome. The lines of the ornaments, and the glimpses of the gorgeous cars they adorn.

    Is that a 56 Chevy in TuttiFrutti that I see up there. Or is TuttiFrutti a Ford color? I'm not sure. BUT, I am SURE that this in an outstanding O post!

    1. Thanks, VBR. I'm sure I'm going to have a great time coming up with "letter" posts.

      As for the TuttiFrutti car (love that description), I'm not sure what kind of car it is and I don't remember from seeing it a few weeks ago. Is that the Chevy logo? You can tell I'm not a car afficionado.

    1. Thanks! I was surprised to see how many of the classic cars used airplanes as their hood ornaments.
