...and a factory piece from Carter that someone -- maybe Ross -- posted on the forum. Unfortunately the photo is not very clear on that one.


Howard (HH56), I polished it a bit (attached). Now it looks more similar to something, Ross did.

I like the model comparisons with other popular makes as seen in the last image (the small book in the back). Packard obviously wasn't afraid to be compared.

Tim, very attentiv. Four eyes see more than two as we say in Germany.
But please keep in mind the 800 miles which lie between Warsaw and Moscow (about the same between Nevada and Denver). And there is a mountain of furs on the backseat (#1). Heavy furs. The driver looks as big as a grizzly (#2). It was cold in January 1930 in Warsaw but not very cold. The breathing air isn't condensed and other photographs taken that day show participants without gloves. Moreover the hunting party consists of bad prepared city dwellers, filled with adrenaline upon first sight of a stuffed squirrel.

Kevin (kevinpackard), congrats, your image could serve as suitable background to deliver the State of the Union Address.

Ignacy Mościcki; 1 December 1867 – 2 October 1946) was a Polish chemist, politician, and President of Poland from 1926 to 1939. He was the longest serving President in Poland's history, acc. to Wikipedia.

Resized Image

Below a photograph of the then president as part of a hunting party in January 1930. The hood ornament seems to symbolize an eagle, the Polish heraldic animal.

It might be the same car, at least it is same type of car at the same location but now in wartime.

Ross, be so kind to inform your marketing department that a picture says more than 1,000 words.
