Default Metallic - Pontiac

Hood ornament from a 50's Pontiac at a car show this summer.

Excellent shot. Looks like a well-preserved collectable.

Yep, its not often that you see these old "Chieftains" with such nice chrome and the Indian head ornament.

As I look at the bonnet ornament I sort of wish we still had them on cars. They added to the distinctiveness of each brand and model.

I agree with Selvin - hood ornaments really brought character to cars, right now they all tend to look similar to each other. There's only a few models I can identify easily ... boring.
