Ornamental Era

07-03-2007

The hood ornament of a 1956 Chevrolet BelAir probably weighs about nine pounds. Even 50 years later, this looks pretty modern.

This was a time when cars were made entirely of metal (what else?) and auto manufacturers decorated them with emblems, tail fins, and hood ornaments. I imagine someone spent many weekend hours polishing this hood ornament.

I wouldn’t want to be the unlucky pedestrian who gets impaled by one of these.
