Help with Hood Ornament

Take a look at my avatar. Right click, view image to see the bigger version.

This is a picture of the hood ornament on my '91 Olds Custom Cruiser. I was recently informed that this is the incorrect ornament for the car.

Sooooo, while I'm in the process of getting the correct one, I'm wondering what car (or more likely cars) this one belongs on. I like the design of it so I'll have to keep it around for something.

TIA!

Brougham Holiday is correct to a point. It was used from early 80's and up to 1990. The Custom Cruiser used it until its redesign in 1991. The Ninety Eight, Eighty Eight, Cutlass Supreme, Cutlass Ciera all used it. The Toronado used a "T" symbol. The late 1970's Oldsmobiles used a rocket. :)

Custom Cruiser was the last Oldsmobile with a stand up hood ornament.

98R nailed it.

Little known fact about me: I collect car emblems. There's probably about 5000 of them in my house right now. Well, technically between the shed, basement & upstairs. This emblem is pretty easy to find in the junkyard IF you don;t mind the red enamel missing on at least one side. Would you like me to look around for you and see if I can dig up the proper emblem for your car?

Thanks for the info guys! I haven't decided whether I'm going to replace it or not, I kinda like the one that's on there! :)

I do have a source for the correct ornament. I appreciate the offer Sixty8!
