Fly Like An Eagle

Uploaded: July 15, 2011


An old Chrysler hood ornament. I tried looking it up but could not find this exact ornament so I am not sure what it is supposed to be. I thought it looked similar to an eagle though. I believe this was on a 50's something Chrysler. Entered in monthly theme.
