  • Description

Award-winning Canadian photographer, Linda Joyce Ott, presents 40 of her favourite photos of hood ornaments in this portfolio.

“Although I don’t drive, and view modern cars strictly as utilitarian modes of transportation, I delight in visiting classic car shows and car museums.

Camera in hand, I spend hours strolling amidst the stunning beauties of a bygone era, stopping frequently to capture the elegant detailing and design of these vintage cars.

Hood ornaments – those stylish embellishments that largely disappeared from cars in the 1960s – enchant me. I love seeing the flights of fancy in the sculptural winged goddesses and flying figures that adorned the earliest automobiles, most often on radiator caps, and the futuristic vision in the sleekly contoured animals and airplanes that graced the hoods of cars in the thirties, forties and fifties.”
