    Re: Hood ornaments

    Does this qualify as a hood ornament ?

    I'm not a 'Vette' expert Loupey, but I believe it's a '63 Sting Ray (...with the hood up) .
    ...the year the coupes had the trademark split rear window, a one year only feature, along with the fake hood louvers.
    Nice capture, btw !! :thumbsup:

    Re: Hood ornaments

    Rick & Rivman - thanks for the info on that car. I gotta remember to pay more attention.

    Another one - an old but beautiful Jag. Not really an ornament on not really a hood.
