Does anyone know what the white horse symbol is on this car? I don't recall ever noticing it before.

It's the emblem used on the car when it was owned by Dennis Poore. It can be seen on several photos in this earlier thread:

That symbol is a flying Pegasus, adopted by Poore and Ken Hutchinson who used it on their Alfas (Hutchinson's a P3) when they formed a racing partneship in the early 1950's.
