Collecting Car Mascots.
Some rare Australian mascots:

Rarely seen in mascot books are examples made in Australia.  The most likely ones you will find are Kookaburras and Kangaroos.

I have also seen mascots of Ned Kelly, Phar Lap, and a swift on a ball.  This latter mascot was marked Ogilvie, Sydney.  The Beacon lighthouse, which includes a thermometer, is believed to be the mascot of Ronaldson & Tippett in Ballarat.

One of the most unique mascots seen was that of a Tasmanian devil on an Itala car in Tasmania.
