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.

      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.

      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.
