I've still got the gold one on and it might be pretty hard for someone to steal it even with wire cutters, etc. If you twist or bend the ornament backwards you can BARELY see the retaining spring to be able to get the "snippers" in there to get it. I wonder if someone twisted it around enough it might just break off at the spring?

I was thinking a 200v AC generator under the hood connected to the hood ornament, when they grab it, the screams of thier voices will be the best alarm yet....

To install it, all you have to do is....

I want to put the gold plated hood ornament back on my car this summer but I've always been concerned that it might get stolen. I know that when Dad bought this car new, he mentioned something about it having an alarm with the horn but he supposedly told the dealer not to bother hooking it up because the car came with the chrome ornament and he said he would install the gold himself. Since I've had this car I haven't used the gold.

Was there some sort of alarm for these because there are no wires or anything that I can see?

If true, how difficult would it be to rig it up?

Does anyone have an alarm for their hood ornament?

i have one from my 1991 Cadillac eldorado Biarritz with the wiring.
they’re very difficult to find or replace. There were 2 versions of the same one. One in plastic case and the other in metal. I have the flexible plastic.
