Duesenbird
This is a shot of the hood ornament (or mascot) of a 1935 Duesenberg Model JN. This particular mascot is known as a Duesen'bird'. The mascot was designed by Gordon Buehrig. I took this shot at the 2008 Concours d'Elegance held at Meadowbrook Hall in Rochester Hills, Michigan. This particular Duesenberg was once owned by Clark Gable. It was a gift to him from his wife, Carole Lombard. When she died, he abandoned the car and requested that it never return to California while he was alive.
