Had a lady ask me Tuesday night when Cadillac stopped putting the Ducks on the Crest. Her son is in the Marines and has an old Cadillac Hearse, I guess he is trying to find out. Anyone here know the answer? Thanks, First Robin:patriot:

That would be 2000 when the crest was redesigned. The new crest didn't appear on all Cadillacs until 2001.

You are correct bruce, for caddy in general, however the professional cars ie limo/hearse had the ducks appearing through some 2002 models.....must be where they dumped the dead overstock...lol

Ok....let's call them Merlettes. Not to be confused with Merlot, but close in proximity.:D

They could also be referred to as Merganzer which would be like the Bronze in my dining room, sculpted by the famous Sculptor,Carl Wagner, which I can only look at and admire, not eat. Carl is a very good friend of mine. However in the meantime I think we should just call them Ducks.:blinzel: First Robin:chuckle:chuckle:chuckle:wave:

It's also the small wing on the nose of some jet planes. Duck, hence wing, hence Cunard. How did we get into ducks. I've never even seen one on as a hood ornament.
Speaking of: We de-chrome our cars back in the 60's, take the stupid birds and rockets off the hood push button door locks and electric trunk buttons and the auto industry follows our lead. But ask them leave the gills off the fenders and they ignore us. :pat:[First Robin;5161]Cunard? I thought that was the shipline I sail on, you know the Q E 2 and the Queen Victoria.

Not to confuse this issue anymore but I thought "Cunard" was the mispelled French word "Canard" which means duck...! :chuckle

Researchers say they are three pairs of legless hen blackbirds aka Martins. And all I asked was when were they taken off the Crest. :chuckle:chuckle:chuckleFirst Robin

Well we know someone knows how to use Wikipedia, and your right Canard is a duck and is also a small wing on front of an aircraft for stability. WOW, poor Robin just asked a simple question and we get out the encyclopedia's. Maye those birds are Turkey's with no feet.:blinzel:
