Ohio tags on the Packard? Nice looking car. Never saw one this nice during the War though.

The colors look like tomato soap. Neat car. I wonder if they would notice it was gone if I drove it home?

Wow so beautiful and expensive cars. Love your series of vintage cars. Cool.

Very few of these Custom Super Eight 180s were built. Packard President George Christopher was hell-bent on taking the company downmarket. Thanks to Christopher, Packard handed the luxury car business to Cadillac on a silver platter. Christopher saved Packard in the worst of the Depression by bringing out the moderately-priced '120,' but by all but abandoning the luxury market, he set forces in motion that brought about the death of The Packard Motor Car Company.
