  1. Question for the Classic 1337

    Theres this classic car that I saw a while back that was black, more square in overall shape, had a tremendously loooooooong front for the engine, and an Elephant as a hood ornament.

    Three karmas for anyone who can help me ID this car.
  2. Question for the Classic 1337

    elephants are either bugattis if it is rearing (i think) or lancias.
  3. Question for the Classic 1337

    I could be wrong, but I'm nearly sure that the ornament was only of an elephants bust.

  5. Question for the Classic 1337

    Thanks man but I'm pretty sure it was an Elephants head, ears, tusks, trunk that dominated the ornament.

    No one has any ideas?
  6. Question for the Classic 1337

  7. Something like this? This is a Bugatti Type 41.

    Edit: Nvm. I thought the ornament posted by volvobob was posted by you.

  11. You lucky fock. Where did you see it?
  12. Only in jpeg form <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A> I would pass out if I got to see it IRL. It's such a perfect machine.
  13. Oh, lol. I thought you ment irl.
  14. Haha, I'm in that picture. I'm the guy in all black, looking left, just to the left of the placard.

    I've seen the Daimler Double Six twice, pretty car, long hood. It was at Meadowbrook and Amelia last year.

    Some Bentley's, especially Speed Six's had elephant hood ornaments as well. I don't know of any companies that exclusively used an elephant as a hood ornament, but I am sure there was one out there.
