the beautiful Rolls Royce in the movie "The Sorcerer's Apprentice"

why the radiator cap/hood ornament is a rooster I can't figure out

according to IMCDB it is a 1935 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Fixed Head Coupe by Hooper. They had a commentor mention that Cinema Vehicles made one from a 2003 Chevy truck. Makes sense, to have one "hero" car that is original for close up glamour shots, and a couple look alike modern ones that can drive around and not cause the insurance company a heart attack.

  1. No idea why its a rooster hood ornament, but you can remove/replace them at will. Had a Bentley and removed the B, replacing it with a lalique crystal eagles head. Still have it...the head, not the car. Great post!
