Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

Tripped up by a Packard

1948 Packard Custom Eight Series 22 Club Coupe

Oh, you might think by the way they are dressed, and posed, that these folks were the down to earth, rural farming type but you couldn’t be more incorrect. Remove the apron, the ACE bandage style stockings and those football cleats and Roberta Carburry will transform herself into a rum-running, pie-baking party animal. To her left is not her husband, that’s Stewart, her cousin. “Stew” plays both the washboard, and the saw, in the local metal band, Hell’s Fetus. They might have pulled off this “rural farmer” masquerade had it not been for the 1948 Packard Custom Eight Series 22 Club Coupe in their backyard. It blew their entire act.
