Default Hood Ornament

Its something my old car used to have but the SAAB is lacking, how cool would a nice chrome griffen made to a sleak shape look on the c900 bonnet, anyone stuck a hood ornament on their car?

If it is possible to chrome plate pewter (I have no idea) you could get one of these and attach it to the front of your car...

Putting on any of these would be illegal in the UK.

Health and Safety. Would cause unnecessary injury to a pedestrian in an accident. Imagine your head going through one of those.

The size is just about right, but it would cost you a FORTUNE in chrome plating!

I once considered my ex-wife as a Saab 9000 hood ornament, but having to remove the gold plating from her *** and having it chrome plated was cost prohibitive....besides she obstructed the view with her rather large diameter...
