Radiator cap mascots
and Hood Ornaments

Many owners have fitted "mascots" to their radiator caps. Here are some of the ones that have been fitted. Before fitting one though an owner is encouraged to check their local applicable laws.

If you would like add your car's mascot please contact the Webmaster using our Contact Form here and I will get back in touch with you for a picture or two!

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.
