Packard was an American luxury-type automobile marque built by the Packard Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan, and later by the Studebaker-Packard Corporation of South Bend, Indiana. The first Packard automobiles were produced in 1899, and the last in 1958. (wikipedia)
As I was standing on the street corner trying to decide which way to turn in order to look at more autos, this beauty and her driver came around the corner. As you can see, she is still very much drivable although I doubt her owner uses her much to go get groceries. Later, I had a chance to talk with the owner – who was just as dapper as his car – and was told many things about it like how they used to have to get into the back rumble seat and that it was originally sold in Hollywood, California. He even pointed out the original sale plate on the dashboard. We both pondered if this vehicle had at one time been in a movie or even owned by a movie star.
A true American slice of history on four wheels here and what a beauty.
