Sometimes You Must Buy The Hood Ornament

After I violated my 'Don't Buy Junkyard Emblems' policy recently, I didn't think I'd fall off the anti-clutter bandwagon just a couple of weeks later. However, when you find a '56 Chevy hood ornament in near-perfect condition for just $9.47... well, you really don't have much choice in the matter. Now it hangs from the picture rail molding in my living room, right next to a photo of a rusty engine in a Minnesota scrapyard. I'm sure Martha Stewart would approve.
