Some folks.

Reminds me of a guy I met that had a "special" hood ornament on his old BMW. It looked like the ones on the Jaguar's of the big cat leaping.

Except it was a rat.

Go Figure.

In the 20s and 30s really fine cars often had custom hood ornaments from Lalique and other fine art glass and sculpture houses. Saw one years ago that was lighted and tied to the magneto so the faster the engine speed...the faster the light pulsed. I love the old Pierce Arrow hood ornaments.......beautiful.

I have a spare star, prominently displayed in my den, from my recent grille conversion. I wonder how it would look on the front of my Canyon? ..........................kidding.

The car looks better that way than the original. By the way, please make an effort to match the color of the cardboard to the vehicle paint ...
