    Neat topic SW, and some very good pics !
    I've got a few, but they're on my other computer - I'll resize my originals and post a few later.
    The older ones are real works of art, but the newer ones are neat too !

    That's one I've not seen before.
    Nice, but I'd prefer to see the whole of the wings.

    Paul,

    Love the Sunbeam! We rarely ever see those in the United States.

    The first below is one variation of the Packard 'bird'. The one Ray Schrackman posted looks like a reproduction that was made during the late '50's for some uber wealthy folks still trying to keep their Packards running. Note the 'cut' steel wings that are not cast.

    Very nice, I like that second one against the black.

    Since we seem to be expanding this to the whole front of the car.
    How about this Maserati 3500 GT ?

    Shame that engine wouldn't fit my car.
    Nice clean smooth pipework, unlike the plastic stuff on my road car.
    Water-cooled charge cooler?
    Where's that 5th pipe going off the exhaust ?

    Why yes, it does have a liquid to air intercooler..The 5th pipe is the waste gate dump tube.

    Does this qualify as a hood ornament ?
    A Mack truck bulldog lookalike, tethered to a '65 Skylark Gran Sport hood latch. :D
