Hood Ornaments/Emblems/Model Names

During the Golden Age of automobiles, the Hood Ornament (and before that the Radiator Cap) was the most prominent feature of a car's aesthetics. The Hood Ornament did more than identify a make; it defined the car's style! Sing praise to the chrome logos and lettering (fonts) affixed to these vintage automobiles for they to are fantastic as well. I'm just fantasied by them all!
