It's still possible to get quite a few of these wonderful 1975 hood ornaments at JC Whitney today- more than you'd think- but my heart sank when I saw that such charismatic chromium canines as the French Poodle, Basset Hound, and German Shepherd have been lost to the passage of 32 years. The Panther, Falcon, and Owl are also gone, as are several of the Nearly Nekkid Goddesses. Perhaps worst of all, Mighty Atlas can no longer hoist the globe over the hood of your Renault Fuego Turbo.
