The backside of a ’37 Packie
I must have had more than one photo of the same person with his/her car — it happens from time to time. Something about this shot was familiar, I’ve seen this guy before, and recently!. Just a couple of posts ago, if you look, I featured a man by the name of “Sir Smokealot” (click here to see that post) and his 1937 Packard.
Seems this guy really enjoys scraping his shoe on his 1937 Packard and he’s not impartial to any one bumper — front, back, it’s all the same to him. Of course, since I don’t know this guy I’m only guessing that this is his expensive boot scrape. He’s posed the same in both shots… could be that his right leg is just permanently bent like this and the height of Packard bumpers that year is ideal for a man of his size. It keeps him from falling over……. which explains the smile. Sure would like to know what he keeps in his left pocket — must be really important.
