We have movies and street pictures, so how about literature?

From Naked Lunch, William S. Burroughs 1959:

"And always car trouble. In St. Louis we traded the 1942 Studebaker in. It has a built in engineering flaw, like Rube*, on an old Packard limousine. Heated and barely made Kansas City. And bought a Ford turned out to be an oil burner. Packed in a jeep we pushed too hard. They're no good for highway driving. It burned out something inside rattling around. Went back to the old Ford V-8. Can't beat that engine for getting there oil burning or no."

* Rube was a troublesome mentally deficient dope addict soon thrown into jail by the police

Neil Young's recently published (2015) "Special Deluxe: A Memoir of Life and Cars", features a number of Packards, amongst them a 1954 Hearse/Ambulance combo and a 1948 Packard woodie that was the "mascot" for his band The Ducks which played in Santa Cruz in the 1970's.
