Plymouth hood ornament

Posted by
Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 21 January 2015 in Transportation and Portfolio.

This hood ornament is at least 10 years newer than one posted yesterday, and the ship has become a bit more stylized. While it is a bit pitted, the chrome has held up considerably better than the paint.

SONY DSLR-A700 1/6400 second F/3.5 ISO 200 75 mm (35mm equiv.)

What an enterprising piece of art this is . . a reflection of those times, I guess.

Nice job of spotting this old hood ornament. A close up picture makes us take in the detail the ship whereas seeing it in life one would not. A fine picture of the chromed item.
