Saturday scenes and scenery: auto hood ornaments
Walking San Francisco, I'm always on the lookout for interesting hood ornaments.
They are not as common as they once were. Perhaps that had something to do with my anarchist friend who years ago made a sport of breaking off those Mercedes markers. The MG one looks tougher.
On the other hand, Chief Pontiac and the Plymouth bird are kind of weird. Once upon a time, cars were far more magical. Soon, if the driverless future ever arrives, they'll just be mechanical conveniences, like washing machines. Bye, bye romance. Good riddance I say.
