    Hey everyone,
    I was curious if the hood ornaments used for M body’s (81-89) were only unique to this body style? Or if they’re used amongst other years/body styles.Mine has the base that mounts to the header panel still,but the pentastar is long gone.Any help appreciated. Thanks

    They are spring loaded – but I hesitate to play with them for the spring retainer (nut) and top part tends to break and fall off (like yours did).
    The ones with plastic insert look nice but for a daily driver, not so nice after years of service. If I didn’t have one, I would go back with the chrome Pentastar version for daily driver or plastic insert one for an occasional driver.
