Wondering what gives with my hood ornament. Earlier while out I realized it was missing. Upon reviewing dash cam footage it was on the car when I left and fell off at a spot on the road when someone cut me off and I hit the brakes. When I drove back to where I saw it fell off, it was ruined from being driven over for 4 hours on the busy road. I’m just wondering if anyone has experienced them loosening after say 30 years or if something more nefarious might have happened in my case. Where it was parked overnight a spring and cotter pin sort of item were found. Not enough of the emblem left to tell if it was ripped out and put back in place or anything. Am thinking the hose down I did of the car last night must have been enough pressure to somehow loosen the old pin? Just something for people with hood ornaments to keep in mind I guess; check that they’re secure! Local guy thinks he has a new one in storage for me.
