That's kinda what I thought, Except I've never seen a 'Vette with an onament that stuck up in the air. They all had emblems that stuck to the nose cone like a sticker.
I have searched all over the 'net and only seen one other on e-bay. Even that guy wasn't sure that it was off a 'Vette

I agree, I don't recall a hood ornament for a vette, the outer wreath also looks like Cadillac.

I thought so at first, but on further inspection, there is a bowtie in the red flag and I don't think caddy would have had a bow tie on it. It is a GM vehicle but not a Chev.

Looks a lot like a hood ornament off one of the old Chevelle Malibus...

I looked at every chevelle on e-bay and didn't see one like it. This thing is driving me nuts. I've searched every after market supplier and every collectables web site and can't find another one.

I looked at 50 pages on an image search and couldn't find it.

thanks Mud. I was hoping some old school folks might have been able to recognize it and solve it for me. Damn.
By the way, I saw your thread on the SAS. Nice job.

Thanks for the props.
I have to sat that after looking at all the old hood ornaments I'm kind of thinking about finding a unique one for the Tahoe.
