"GODDESS OF SPEED" (The Metamorphosis)
"I have one speed; I have one gear: go!" ~ Charlie Sheen
Here's another one of my artistic creations (post processed) with Topaz Labs! It's obvious that I having so much fun utilizing it. Hey, to each his / her own, right? My 30-day trial ends in a few days, but I have undoubtedly put it to good use.
Once upon a time in America, automobiles could be elaborate works of art, crowned by brazen ornaments that seemed ready to leap forth from the hood to lead the way. This vintage hood ornament was made for Packard luxury automobiles in the 1930s/40s (see the "1930 Packard 734 Speedster that was my yesterday's post). Symbolizing the spirit of the company, the ornament features the figural winged goddess of speed with a tire held in her outstretched hands. The chrome-plated sculpture stands about 5 1/2 in. tall. They sure don't make them like this anymore.
