Of course, Wat has been continuously divorced sine the last millennium, so there's that.

If you're not having fun, maybe it's your own damned fault.

There are several pictures but not a picture that gives you a good view of the whole car. I love boattails, but not on 1938 Packards and up. 1937 and earlier senior cars I think it looks great when it's done right.

Only one picture of it? Most of the other cars had several. Some different things on that car....a split front bumper? Can't say I like the huge horns on the fender either. I've never been big on boat tails anyways.

Still, some nice early 50's examples there. A couple of those would make great project cars for someone.

You're right, I see the additional pictures now. Only one pulled up for me when I looked earlier today. But my internet has had issues off and on all day so it must've timed out. Definitely looks a little different on the back end of that car. I think it would look nicer if the whole rear lid had a gentle continuous slope without the boat shape, similar to a business coupe.

That's some serious lime green on the engine. Interior looks nice, and always a fan of Packard yellow on the exterior.

Hi

The popularity of the boat-tail roadster configuration pretty much ended with the 1936 Auburn Supercharged 852. The remaining custom coachbuilders built maybe one or two but none from 1938 forward.

Its place was taken by the Darrin-styled convertible victoria which were the rage through WWII. This '40 would have been better customized in that theme. Typical of this genre of later bodies, it lacks proper surface development, which requires skilled 'panel-beaters' and tools such as the English Wheel to create. The '55 Pontiac Star Chief rear quarter 'stars' are a nice touch...

Odd they couldn't be bothered to include their location.
