In response to the Hood Ornaments Post Tim Koster of The Netherlands sent in these photos of his beautiful classic car.
Text and photos by Tim Koster
Here are pictures of my 1953 Pontiac Chieftain Deluxe Straight Eight Convertible with the Dual Streak Indian Head on the hood. The amber head is illuminated when the lights are on!
The first picture was taken last Summer when participating in a Rotary car rally in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
I have owned this car since 1986. Finding and buying it was a boy’s dream come true. The car is assembled at GM France S.A. in Paris. It was driven most of its life in the South of France and sold and exported to the Netherlands in the early eighties.
What a beautiful car. I understand why this classic is adored so much. I do love the hood ornament.
I would like to see more hood ornaments and other interesting classic car photos and stories. Send in yours to firstname.lastname@example.org.
