Its no secret that I love to go to car shows, doesn’t matter what kind, new, old, collectible or survivors its all good.  Of late I’ve been into capturing details, mostly pot metal nomenclature as back in the day cars were named and the script font fulfilled the imagery.  One of the other details I like is grill badges and plate ornaments.  Imagine if you will the squeel I let out when I spotted this gem on a ’32 Franklin at yesterdays Rancho Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance.
