Worth giving some thought. After all...the naming of your bus is without a doubt the single most important step in any conversion!

I wonder if these guys would make you a Scooby Doo hood ornament?

I just learned that I want the 1934 hood ford hood ornament to go with the art work I want to put on the sides of the bus that will include representative paintings of racing sleddogs

My bus, if it ever comes about, will be 'Spirit of the North' with scenes of sleddogs on the sides

My buddy has a 3D printer. it would be cool to replace that IC emblem with something protruding out like that. but.... it is near the bottom of my list. I need to get my ass in gear. 2 steps forward and 1 step back (sometimes more.....)

That hood ornament is PERFECT for the hood of "Spirit of the North"!!!!


Ours is not too original ... we call her "The Beast".


However, the back story gives some context. We are big Disney fans. We have started adding little Disney-like touches to The Beast as we have been working on her. Right now, we have a coat of BLACK primer on her. She really does look like The Beast. We are toying with the idea of adding a single rose along the side (perhaps with pedals falling off), hence "The Beast".

the idea of a 3D printer gave me the idea of printing a hood ornament sized 6 or 8 dog team running down the ridge or center of the hood

Still no name for ours. A recent suggestion was "Good and Plenty" as our bus is white and purple. "Barney", and "purple passion" are others suggested, that we like.
