Site Editor's Comment:

                  During the early to mid- 1920s manyautomotive mascot inventors sought to combine

                  various functions into their mascot designs.  Suddenly mascot gained movement,

                  illumination and foretold of engine temperature condition(s).  Each example has

                  sufficient documentation to support the shown item's authenticity and is

                  magnificently depicted.

                Terrific examples of early functional mascots make-up this book volume!
