This article covers a 1935 Packard Super 8 Coupe. This was when Packard were at their best and if I could wave a magic wand and have a packard it would be one like this:

Collectors seem to like the 12 more, and the open cars but I think the senior inline eight in a closed car is the better choice.

Yes very much so a mid 30's Packard is a dream car for me . Even if I didn't drive it I can look at them all day.

Did the new consortium make the engine? It's listed as custom-made but by whom is an interesting question: Falconer?

Considering the '56 Caddy and the '56 Packard:
Wouldn't it be nice, if current manufacturers would revive the color schemes of that decade?

Very interesting video and stills in this thread, thanks.
