Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

It’s a Packard, but how can you be certain?

estherPackards have always had a very distinguishable grille shape. Even a novice car person could tell a Packard from any other car, easily, by the shape of the top of their grille every year Packards were produced. There is no grille in this photo, no, but there is a luggage rack! And the designers at Packard thought out their branding so well that they designed the unique shape of the top of their grilles directly into their luggage racks as well. Look at the top rail, it’s the same shape as a Packard grille! So, Hilda, Esther, Ma and the other ladies here were cruising around town this day in a beautiful 10-year old Packard. To be specific, a 1940 Packard Henney Super 8
