Would you like to pack up your troubles...

... into a 1929 PACKARD DIETRICH DUALCOWL PHAETON?

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."

Oh that is one amazing car, what a classic and in such excellent condition. What great advice, keep a lot of space between car in front and back, good idea in general I think haha!

Now thats what I call stylish motoring! traveling in this car would be all about the journey rather than the destination.
