Hood Ornament/Weekend Reflections

Vintage hood ornament

This appeals to me because the red of the car is reflected on the swan and the swan is reflected on the hood of the car. (Am I correct that this is a Packard?)

The color and reflection is really very special! Wish all cars still had hood ornaments; they are so very classy!!

I do believe that it is a Packard, but I wouldn't be able to swear to it. When I was a kid, other kids would steal ornaments from Cadillacs. I don't know why other than they thought it was fun.

I think automakers should return to the hood ornaments of the earlier days!

I'm not sure of the kind of car, but it certainly has an amazing hood ornament. Very nice reflections.

You have such a good eye. Do you know how many people would see that and never realize what an elegant picture that makes. Good for you. I love your photography

I used to know my hood ornaments but kinda rusty now. I'll go with your assumption. Those were great cars.
