I have something to say about the car manufacturer. Nowadays, there are simply not enough hood decorations, and the company known for its gorgeous decorations just gave up all decorations instead of being particularly keen on such symbols. So why not?
Mercedes (Mercedes) once again deprived of the performance of Mercedes-Benz (this time the E-Class) Hood decoration. My friends, today is really a sad day.
Now, I usually do car design and technical improvement here. I’m not the kind of person who longs for good times (although I am satisfied with those days, it is different). Usually, when old-fashioned elements disappear from the car, I would say “good to get rid of”. But the hood decoration is where I want to draw a line.
The hood decoration is like a car mascot. Apart from enhancing visual effects, they have no modern use, but decoration has always been important to us humans. The Egyptians and Romans used to decorate their chariots with ornaments and talismans, which were usually used for mystical and aesthetic purposes. Somewhere on these wheeled vehicles are icons of gods or animal symbols that convey strength and good luck, partly to bring the icons they represent, and to remind their riders to embody this symbol.
Therefore, when the internal combustion engine hits the streets, it makes sense to add a similar icon to the car’s hood or radiator cover. The exposed radiator cover can be seen on the hood of the original car, which is a way to check the water vapor temperature. But when almost anyone can start a car company and there are thousands of different names, the hood trim is a good way to identify the car brand.
They eventually became a symbol of luxury, especially due to Mercedes-Benz’s iconic hood decoration.
They are beginning to be eliminated because they pose a danger to pedestrians. I was hit by a car and I have to say that it was still painful without being hindered by the huge pointed object on the hood.
But they are a good contact. They are simply something to be proud of, these days we can all use a little bit of personalization in our lives.
