1917 Ford Truck hood ornament

Post by Mike B in OKlahoma »


This 1917 Ford Truck was in storage in a poorly-lit warehouse (as you can tell from the dust and fingerprints in the background). Lighting was poor, but I couldn't resist trying to take a photo. The result wasn't critically sharp by any means, but is more than good enough for web viewing, and could even make a modest-sized print!

Tis a pity that ford never kept this icon for their cars, like Jaguar and Rolls Royce had their hood ornaments, so too could have ford.
