Steve, the 1933 Pierce Arrow silver arrow has the same type of lines as well, but I understand that hardly anyone would see those cars unless at car unveiling shows.

Hi BDC

Yes indeed, the same futuristic shapes as the Silver Arrow as well. Encountering any of the three was a revelation for the public in progressive car design.

But, before streamlining displaced the Classic, its been written that Ray Dietrich didn't do too much to make a car special, just the right things and just enough. Proof this was entirely true: 1932 Twin Six 906 Individual Custom convertible sedan by Dietrich.

This '34 Twelve 1107 five passenger coupe with artillery wheels was in the car corral for sale along with the '39 Twelve 2/4 passenger coupe. Dave is right, artillery wheels look better painted with pinstripes. No one back then wanted to annually varnish natural-finish wood wheels. Sorry I couldn't get rear three-quarters views of each due to the way cars were parked on either side.

The Marano Collection brought their '38 Super Eight touring coupe by Mayfair. It's quite a striking design in the idiom very popular with English coachbuilders in those immediate pre-war years. The chrome radiator shell is a bit much but no doubt correct.

Almost last but not least, a '40 Custom Super 180 Darrin convertible Victoria in Sea Cloud Gray. There isn't a bad angle to view a Darrin, is there? Got lucky, the crowd was elsewhere when I happened along to take these.

Finally, a solid black '53 Mayfair looking very regal. That concludes my Hershey 2019 Packards photos. It's by no means comprehensive, there were others that I missed or bypassed as I've photographed them in prior years. But, we're always delight when the owners bring them for us to see and enjoy. Thanks.

Steve
