Would you like to pack up your troubles...


From my web search, think this beauty belongs to Dana and Lianne Graham of Rancho Palos Verdes. The owner stopped to fill-up a the local Chevron station early one morning. At first I just gawked and then remembered to snap a few pictures. I asked him if he was afaid to drive such an expensive, elegant vehicle; he said, "No, I just try to keep lots of space between me and other cars since the Packard needs a lot of stopping distance."

Take a close look at the skyline, to see a faint outline of the San Gabriel Mountains.
