Last Call – Tommy Keeps His Cool

Tommy
In WWI, British infantry soldiers were referred to as Tommys because of the name used as example in the pay book- Tommy Atkins. British troops during the Great War were famous for their bravery, and for always keeping their heads when the action got hot. That’s why this Tommy is a fitting mascot for this 1920 Locomobile.

    Old radiator caps and hood ornaments are so cool. They gave cars a certain level of character that is missing on our modern, more pedestrian-friendly steeds. They also were one of the first areas of modification for car owners back in the day. You could buy (or even had made) a radiator cap and change out the OEM cap to personalize the car a bit.
    I guess now we personalize with donks, faux fender vents, blackouts, stickers, <str>ironing boards</str> wings, etc. I may have been born 70 years too late.
