From Minerva to jockey / Desde Minerva a jockey

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

We are heading out in a moment to pick up Lindy and Matt in Málaga for a day in Frigiliana and Nerja, about 45 minutes further east along the coast. So, I leave you with the rest of my hood ornament photos from the Automobile and Fashion museum. Don’t you think the one above would look great on our dark blue Prius? Or maybe the Lalique glass eagle on the Delage in the second photo below.


Saldremos en un momento a recoger a Lindy y Matt en Málaga para pasar un día en Frigiliana y Nerja, unos 45 minutos más al este por la costa. Así que os dejo con el resto de mis fotos de adornos de capó del museo del Automóvil y la Moda. ¿No crees que el de arriba se vería genial en nuestro Prius azul oscuro? O tal vez el águila de cristal de Lalique en el Delage en la segunda foto de abajo.

      I would love to have a collection of these. Could have easily found them for nothing or next to nothing when I was a kid. Too late to start collecting now.

  1. Again, it’s the Art Deco that attracts me…

    Our first two Spanish holidays as a couple were in Nerja. It’s a quaint little town, and Frigiliana is lovely, too – but we wanted to get some nightlife as well, so on our third booking we discovered the joys Benalmadena and have rarely veered away from the place on every visit ever since. Jx

    1. Jon:
      Same for me. I love Art Deco.

      Yes, this was our second time in both places. Beautiful, but not places we’d need to spend a night.

  2. The elegance and uniqueness of car design in the past.
    So much anonymity and blandness now.
    Hi via Steve’s blog 🙂👋 or is it Holà?

    1. Hi and hola, Gwynneth:
      Thanks so much for your visit and your comment. I remember hood ornaments when I was growing up in New York. I also remember them being broken off! I miss them.

    1. Urspo:
      I hadn’t thought of that. I just remember them being broken off and stolen when I was a kid.

Please share your thoughts...
