From Wikipedia: Packard was an American luxury 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. I think this is an early to mid 1930’s model. The bug below is a recent model.
Very cool auto and awesome hood ornament 🙂 The bug photo should have been used in the Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra , LOL. Have a great day 🙂
Thanks, Joe. Maybe I should check out the weekly challenge once in a while.
Love that hood ornament, and the colors you captured here make a pretty picture indeed.
Thanks, John. I loved the Packard but it was difficult getting an overall photo. It was in beautiful condition.
Forgot about Packards – cool cars and photos! I’m pretty sure the bug is from a 1958 Rambler…
And I thought it was from a Volkswagen!
More minimalism with that bug…!
Thanks, Malin. Im sure the owner of the car didn’t appreciate the bug as much as I did
That ornament rivals the Spirit of Ecstasy on Rolls Royces for beauty. The colouring of that first shot is something special. Ken
Thanks, Andy. The Packard was never on a par with the Rolls but it was a high end luxury car back when this model was built. The blue sky, which I normally dislike, accounts for the blue tint in the chrome. The pale yellow of the car is a nice offset to the blue sky.
The colours do work so well together, Ken
What a beauty!!!
And I really like the cute bug… 🙂
Have a great weekend, Ken!
Thanks, Malin. Someone loves this car.
A beautiful car everyone dream to have in his garage!!!! when we love cars of course! Your picture is beautiful Ken.
Thanks, Chantal. I would have to build a separate garage for it if it were mine.
I’m not usually a big car fan or a big car-photography fan, but these photographs have won me over. Love the colors and the abstractions.
Thanks, Linda. The photos really express my love for these old cars but I’m more interested in the details rather than the entire car. I appreciate the lengths the owners go to in order to maintain them and I admire that dedication.
Lovely ! What a great design … She really is going places 🙂
