  1. I’ve been away for a couple of months on a very long sweetwayfaring trip but I am back now and able to visit blogs again.

    I love vintage cars, take photos of them whenever I see them but can’t quite fiture waht to do with them.

    1. Yes, I have read what you have been up to – at least some of the posts :-)

      You should read a novel where a vintage car plays an important role – at least for my blog this works and now I have a reason to show the photos.

    1. Aaah, I really would have loved the white car to go away but there was no use waiting. So the only thing I could do was to put its rear window parallel to the wing of the hood thingie (ornament?). Thank you so much!

        1. Haha. Oh. I said thingie. Don’t tell anyone, yes? ;-) Of course I know the right thing (sic!) to say would have been thingamajig ….

  2. That hood ornament stumped me for a time, but I found it. It is from a 1939 Chevrolet Master Deluxe. Markus is wrong. That was a terrible time. The whole world was in a depression, and WW II was about to get really ugly.

    But the 1930s cars were sculptural, filled with curves that had more to do with style than function.

  3. I didn’t find the hood ornament … but I think I know more about hood ornaments of American cars by now than any other German … I have seen them all …. in google images …. ;-). The ornament was – beside the sign I thought was a Chevrolet sign – the only distinctive hint I had got from the car — but … I did not find it. Nope.
