I like 'em too, and they are a lost art form.
My grandfather had a garage and auto-wrecker yard. I used to collect some of them when I was a kid. I especially liked the ones that looked like futuristic aircraft at the time.
Shot these at an autoshow a couple years ago. The Essex one is really nice, IMO.
If they look a little grungy it's because I've really compressed the files

I love the days when you tell the make of a car by the hood ornament, great shots.
