On the Hoods in my 'Hood


Can you guess which one is my absolute favorite?

I smile every time I pass this one.

Hope you have a great Sunday!

That's priceless. I'll have to remember that one for when my own vehicle passes the "point of no return."

I would hope it's the BMW or Mercedes, because I'm German,
but my guess actually goes to number for, just because it's the funniest one.

Ah sweet bird of youth! Love the way they love their wheels. And with a great sense of humor it seems. What a cool post.

You live in a pretty fancy neighborhood!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

The last one, I'm sure! Although you hope to be a crazy cat lady someday - shouldn't it be the jaguar?

Liz P said...

Haha, that's great!

He probably should have invested a little more money in the car itself though! :)

Pretty original with the basketball player,must be off a trophy.

faye said...

Love the hood ornaments...
yes, the basketball player did bring a smile....

McGillicutty said...

Haa Haaa too funny. Maybe I should get a hood ornament, a little Nikon or a Shih Tzy maybe. My kid is always telling me I need a bobble head!!

Jayne said...

My daughter would love that last one! Her little basketball team won a State championship recently - I'd better not show her the ornament, she'll begging for it for my hood!

Leah J. Utas said...

Got a smile out of the last one. That must be your fave.

The Words Crafter said...

That.....is awesome :)))

The Retired One said...

These are just fun. We go to antique car shows and many times I take closeups of the hood ornaments..I am smitten with them.

Madi and Mom said...

LOl BB what a unique and creative post. We agree your favorite is the best...oh my gosh Mom and Dad saw a Porsche on display at the mall that dang car had a price tag of $104,000. That is just shameful

Oh today is a National Holiday at the homestead. Mom had her first Ruby Throated Hummingbird sighting last night at 6:28pm...Happy Hummer Shuffle

Good timing on this one, Betty! :)

Pearl said...

Ha! We need that for the front of our car at home.

I wonder if Willie would enjoy me gluing a bowling trophy to the hood?

Stephen Tremp said...

I'll be happy with any of the above. Our cars are piling up the miles and we need to start looking for new ones. Have a great weekend yourself!

Ginny said...

A very cool post!!! I like the BMW one, but how did you ever find the last one?

Ms. A said...

I'm ready for a post about the person behind that last one. Must be interesting!

Catherine said...

OK ~ well sadly I don't know a Chev from a Cadillac so I would just go with the one that looks like it has a cat on top!!! :)

But the basketball one is very funny!!

Happy Sunday Betty!

The last one has...style! However, I hear the roar of the jaguar in my blood and I am twenty again hair flying in the wind...

Anita said...

Hilarious! I think I have some of those in boxes somewhere.

Pat Tillett said...

If it's a ragtop, I'll take the caddie...

Ann said...
