Host Mark Walberg and appraiser Eric Silver visit the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan, to discuss the ins and outs of antique hood ornaments, or mascots, as they're known in England. Examples include Rolls-Royce's "Spirit of Ecstasy," and an exquisite glass ornament designed by René Lalique.
