Day 212/365

Jul 31 - Hard to believe seven months are now complete!

 

Apparently, in the early days of cars, hood ornaments actually served a useful purpose. In searching for 'Boyce Motometer', I've learned that these devices were thermometers that provided the driver with instant information about the engine's temperature. It also looks like it might be susceptible to collecting moisture in rainy conditions.
