1930 Packard 740 Straight Eight 20 Years Younger Than Owner

Thanks to Fabrizio Costantini, Channon Hodge and the New York Times for this great video of Margaret Dunning, who looks & sounds much younger than her 101 years and the gorgeous 1930 Packard roadster that she bought in 1949 and has driven ever since.

For the complete article, more photos and the original visit:

1934 Packard V-12 Roadster

One of my favorite cars to DRIVE is a late 1920's or early 1930s Packard. I don't care if it is the V-12, the Straight-8 or Straight-6. They are all extraordinarily quiet, smooth & powerful. They feel almost like a current car (except for the huge steering wheel and shiny metal dash.) I've been very fortunate to have gotten to drive several including on freeways at speed in California. Each one felt stable, safe and they kept-up with modern traffic.

I never used to think Packards were a beautiful car, especially when compared to the Duesenbergs, Cords, Cadillacs, Rolls Royces and other great cars of that era. But after driving them I fell in love and understand why they were the cars wealthy and powerful in the early 20th century.
