Accessory Mascots

Animals - Birds:  1930 Rubber Neck Heron.

1930 Rubber neck safety mascot of a Heron and sold thought the chain of motor accessory shop Halfords.  These mascot were designed to try and combat the growing concerns that being impaled by a mascot to the bonnet of a car could seriously damage your health.  This train of thought eventually lead to the decline and in some country's the total ban on the fitting of mascot, however, the fitting of a two inch diameter chrome plated ring of steel to the front of a vehicle as an accessory is totally acceptable.  Known as bull bars and seen on most large 4/4s.  I wonder just how many people who drive theses vehicles have actually encountered anything larger than a domestic cat run in front of them here in the UK.
