Mascots

Recommended Posts

For those of us who love vintage cars, mascots (aka rad ornaments) are important parts of the cars. Many of them were offered from the factory, some from the dealers, some from stores, all are interesting, stylish works of art. Here are a few from the Concours of America.

Found in my library of "Automobile Quarterly" reference books is a wonderful article written about the artists that created some of these hood ornament masterpieces and the story behind what inspired them.  The "beautiful, young and soaring woman" provided many of those stories, and for the same inspirational reasons, (lost-love, passionate trysts, etc), that anyone might imagine.
