A Packard Automobile
"Ask the Man Who Owns One"
During a recently completed road trip of over 2600 miles I had the opportunity to enjoy the sights in Mark Twain's Town along the Mississippi River.  

 When I spotted this magnificent automobile I had to stop and capture several images.  Many who know me are aware that I learned to drive an automobile over the roads of Iowa in my tender youth in a 1949 Packard Clipper.  I believe this is a 1956 Packard 400.

This automobile appeared to be well maintained and cherished by it's owner.  When I was a teen I also thought my Dad should acquire one of these fine automobiles to replace the 1949 Clipper. The motto for the Packard ads was "Ask the man who owns one" thus the caption on the top of this blog.
