1940 PACKARD VICTORIA ART DECO HOOD ORNAMENT.

This gorgeous chrome Art Deco hood ornament was the piece de resistance on my great uncle Tom Lyle Williams, 1940 Packard Victoria..... symbolizing Maybelline out-powering the competition.....  Stay tuned for an article on the car written by Steve Snyder, of VAULT CARS, for the Antique Automobile Club of America .  



These Classic Roman Horses represented the power of Rome.  I was amazed to see how similar they are to Tom Lyle's hood ornament.



The power of ancient Rome was undefeated and so was Maybelline's power..... for nearly 100 years now.


The Roman Warrior on a Chariot.  Did Tom Lyle feel like this as the King of advertising during the 1940s?


The horse-head ornament on Tom Lyle's 1940 Packard.

To be continued next week.
