Book #2

Ornaments, Mascots and Figurines 



A rare compendium of the first noteworthy American publications on car mascots written by 'doc' Mundhenk in the early and mid 1960s. Mundhenk thus became a pioneer in systematic research and cataloguing of car mascots.  


If you think you already know almost everything on mascots, it is time to embark on a new journey. A journey back to the time when reference books did not yet exist. Mundhenk painstakingly collected the information and photos and prepared them for publication. Sure, not everything was correct from the beginning. Some contributions contain more or less obvious mistakes. - But try to find out for yourself! It's great fun! 

English, print on demand only, softcover, 74 pages. For orders please use the contact page, thank you.
