..this is the hood ornament of yesterday’s car.. got this title from faisal.. i’m running out of titles.. let’s see how this’ll affect web traffic.. looks like there’s some dirt left under the ornament, not that sparkly clean anymore.. should i have cloned out my hands there? i guess not..
..a 1949 Pontiac Silver Streak 8.. looking at this, i should’ve moved that chair.. but then, i don’t want to get yelled at.. considering how shiny these cars are, i just kept my grubby hands to myself..
The straight-8 was dubbed the Silver-Streak at Pontiac Division, but unlike its “flashy” name, it was anything but. During its 21 year run, which included America’s three year campaign in the war overseas, and right up until it being replaced by the V8, it was considered acceptable under Pontiac’s somewhat conservative management. Powered by the “eight”, a Pontiac was promoted as a likable automobile, with enough power under the hood to get the job done in affordable luxury.(wiki)

..a 1934 Plymouth Coupe’s hood ornament..
The Plymouth automobile was introduced on July 7, 1928. It was the Chrysler Corporation’s first entry in the low-priced field, which at the time was dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. Plymouths were actually priced a little higher than the competition, but they offered standard features such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes that the competition did not provide.
..now i didn’t quite get what model this was again, it was just eye candy, so i just snapped away.. 🙂
..i think this is a chevy bel-air.. but i thought of bender when i saw this..
..a 1969/1970 Shelby GT350..
Carroll Shelby terminated his agreement with Ford in the summer of 1969. The GT350 and GT500 for the 1969–70 model years received extensive face lifts, the body alone increasing in length by 4 inches (100 mm). Ford was heavily involved with design and style decisions, with Shelby having very little input. The GT350 was now equipped with a 351 cubic-inch V8. Production of Shelby Mustangs ceased with the 1970 model year. The 1970 models were in fact left over 1969 models.(wiki)

..here’s a plymouth hood ornament, forgot to get the car info, i’m guessing something in the 1938-1941’s..

Plymouths were actually priced a little higher than the competition, but they offered standard features such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes that the competition did not provide. Plymouths were originally sold exclusively through Chrysler dealerships. The logo featured a rear view of the Mayflower ship which landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the Plymouth brand name came from Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer for its popularity among farmers.(wiki)
