Alex Tremulis Hood Ornament, 1951

This is a really obscure and rare hood ornament that I accidentally came across a picture of, about June some time. That is when I decided to possibly collect hood ornaments, soon I was booked to bid in an auction the last Sunday of July, and this is number one of a collection that I was buying today. Each lot I shall list separate, on what I was successful on, so there will be lots of hood ornaments coming. I bought 20 different lots.

This was item # 1 at the auction. I knew I had to have one !!

I posted on another blog site a lot about this man, Alex Tremulis and his genius in the world of cars, so long before the Starship Enterprise came to fruition, Alex was inspiring the people who made the show on so many things. Here is a website with more info on this piece and the genius of Alex Tremulis !!~

    Comments were deleted by mistake ! They gave me a false alarm and no way to reach the auction today, my heart sank to the floor -- just hope I can pick up the pieces and get my otherwise excellent mood back !!~

  6. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 2 years ago
    Thanks for the loves and likes, and the guy at the auction site said I never got it because it was not on the bill, I kind of freaked out as 3 others that I won were not there also, but later found out the auction bills 2 kinds of ways, bids left on line, which I did, and the lots I did by phone bidding were on another bill !~

    Thanks, not such a great day, fine weather today at least and my heat finally came on. You should read about tremulis. I posted some pages of his extraordinary thoughts on ufo's and other extremely interesting thoughts in this website - where it says page one you can click to get to page 2 and so on for about 7 days or more of posting on Mr. Tremulis. I also posted an interview I did with a guy who built a replica of one of Tremulis's spacecar blueprints etc :

    I hear the Jetsons theme right now! Love it!
  24. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 7 months ago
    This spaceship was more lost in space, the jetsons had it too easy with their president of 'Spacely Space Sprockets', but love the reference thanks Tom.

    That would look good on the bow of an old wooden speed boat.
