This 1941 Cadillac Fleetwood was the last of the more vertical designs so that you could enter the car without having to remove your hat. Post war designs began morphing to a lower, sleeker look. I was always impressed with the massive nose of this beast... it's downright intimidating.

This Danbury Mint model (along with its Green repaint), in my opinion, has always been one of their finest replica's.  A car that I'd not have thought would become a model.  Both are standouts on my shelves. 

Have to be honest though, I've never thought of the "grille/front end" as having a "nose".  Nor have I for any car for that matter.  Guess it's in the eye of the beholder.  Amazed

I have always liked the front ends of the 41 Cadillacs. Rich your pictures are magnificent.

 Well Pete, you've made the point.  Cars did have noses.  Smile I've never looked at them that way, but do now.  THANKS!

Mostly late sixties Pontiacs.  I suppose it can be argued that the '71 Thunderbird has a beak.

Okay, so I'm wondering.  Would the '58 Edsel be considered to have a "nose"?
