Note to UK Residents
Although in the UK it is "illegal" (see The Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 - section 53) to fit mascots many owners do ornament our cars with them. On cars made after 1937 no radiator 'mascot' is allowed, due to the damage they did to pedestrians. But Princess Anne was taken to court in the 1980s with a horse mascot 15 inches back on her Range Rover bonnet. She won her case as it was not a 'radiator' mounted item. - Click here for the extract from the regulations.
