That is possibly the weirdest car I have ever seen! Fabulous. Jx
I’ve seen weirder in the United States (what people do to their cars), but this one started off that way.
Those are some of the most ornate hood ornaments I have ever seen. I thought Rolls Royce had that title.
These aren’t cars that would be parked on the street. How long would one of those hood ornaments last?
I Ford Roster! I have been known to go to exotic car shows and take close ups of the hood ornaments.
It’s automatic. When I was shooting the cars, I thought, no, I need close-ups.
The sleek brown car must be a roadster chicken! And the winged nymph hood ornament looks like one made by Lalique (probably for a Rolls Royce) — that changed colours at different car speeds, much like a kaleidoscope. The Lalique hood ornaments are now worth as much or more than the vintage cars in some cases! Such a fascinating museum to visit — one that I’d even enjoy seeing!
I’m going to add the captions to the hood ornament photo. I only ended up using three photos. Don’t know why I didn’t include them to begin with.
That’s what’s missing from my car! A hood ornament! Fabulous!
I’m sure we can find these online.
Hood ornaments are HOT!
Collectors are always on the hunt for them.
These are very nice.
I can only imagine how much these would cost now.
Whatever became of hood ornaments? Whatever became of cars with personality? Whatever became of roadster chickens, and did they come in red? Whatever became of Al Capone? Sleep dulled minds want to know!
Well, I do remember 1970s New York and the hood ornaments being stolen from cars. I know what became of Al Capone (Jimmy Hoffa? No clue.) As for roadster chickens, that might have been the only one.
The title of this post in Spanish put me in mind of old Al. Both capones and capos.
That Maford DOES look exactly like a roast chicken! Now I’m hungry.
I wonder what was said about that car at the time. Certainly not that it looked exactly like a tribute to Jules Verne.
Ha! That car DOES look like a chicken! I think it’s those back fenders. Interesting hood ornaments — I recognize the Rolls Royce swooping woman. (Although I don’t think I’ve ever ridden in a Rolls. If I have it didn’t make an impression.)
I’ve never been in a Rolls. I used to want to want one.
I think we all need more info on the hood ornaments – don’t leave us hanging like that, Mitchell! Very gorgeous, even the gold-tipped drumsticks.
I don’t know why I was so lazy. Three captions were all that were needed. I’m going to add the info now.
Great photos! I just read your previous entry about your train mishaps. The cool thing is that you live in a place where trains run from here to there and everywhere!
It’s nice to have trains to get lost on.
I would love that here, but alas a car is the only real mode of transport.
The perfect car for a Thanksgiving parade.
I can’t believe it never appeared.
A surprisingly excellent museum.
A roast chicken!! Haaaa!
It is incredible, though, to think of any of these cars actually being driven around in Spain, in their era… I feel like I can connect them to Downton Abbey, but not so much to France or Spain. I don’t know why, really.
The cars were from all around the world. I don’t know how many were actually driven in Spain.
