Good grief.... are you feeling OK, Harry? You've posted one that appears, from this angle at least, as though it might be quite nice-looking. That never happens! I guess it might all go horribly wrong at the front end, though....

bestest,

M.

:lol:

I really don't pick ugly cars on purpose, must just be a coincidence that so many of them are ugly!

I'm pretty sure I know what it is (at least what make it is), and I can assure you that, if it is what I think it is, it looks pretty good up front but not as nice as it did in earlier years.

A lot of you guys had a hard time with this one... got close, but not quite right. The car is a 1938 Packard Super 8.

I enjoyed this one a lot Harry. I knew it was a Packard but those tail lights kinda thru me off. All the 37-39 Packards that I looked at had the round tail lights. Then, at the last try, I found "the" picture and then had trouble getting it to show up. Thank you. :) Dan

The tail lights gave me grief too, because the only cars I found them on were 1939 models, so I kept stating 1939.

What also threw me was that the Packard 12 apparently had similar coachwork sometimes. I quote 'There is nothing like a Packard Twelve – the 473 Cubic inch engine is a marvel of smoothness and quietness'. And the Packard Super 8 was preceded by the Packard 120... :huh: But I went for Super 8, with some help from Mr P.! Where do you find the time, Harry!

Cheers, -Don.
