Happy 2012!!!!

Another cool photograph at the museum.

This Packard had a pretty cool background story. Apparently, it was a convertible prototype Silverhawk, created the last year of the Silverhawk (note the "Packard" name badge). Car historians may remember that Packard and Studebaker merged to avoid bankruptcy. The story goes, that the convertible was never built, and when the prototype's designer retired, he got the car as part of his retirement. Pretty cool.
