Sure, it is elegant but did it have cup holders?

Most definitely.

Beautiful car. So much more class than many of the everyday $120K luxury sedans.

Nice machine, well taken opportunity. I would not know about the white band, but this looks like a well-kept car.

Is it an 8-cylinder in-line? The hood looks long enough.

Words/No Words • 1937 Packard Super Eight Coupe on Nicca-III S

Sat, 06/24/2017 - 20:57
I went to the Kiwanis pancake breakfast on the last weekend of May, and in the parking lot was this gorgeous Packard coupe. Grabbed a few snaps on my way in, then realized I had forgotten to get any of the rear. Unfortunately, the car was gone when I came back out. But trust me, it is a ’37 Super Eight Coupe.

I was shooting these without the aux finder, so I made sure to frame them a bit tighter than normal so there wouldn’t be much cropping to do.

Its best angle.

How’d you like to see that coming up in the mirror of your Fiat 500?

Thanks, Dustin and Julio.

Yes, plenty of development in the area, with new apartment communities going up, and now Roanoke County and the cities of Salem and Roanoke have gone together to buy up all the farm land in the area so they can turn it into an industrial park. This is of course right across the road from some expensive tracts of new homes, so those folks aren't too happy about the news. And they are complaining about how much more traffic will be on the road. Thing is, it was a nice quiet country lane until they all moved in with their morning and evening rushes to get to and from work.

Nice documentary, PF. Development is happening in your area. Water is usually a good thing to have around.

The Water Authority installed a new water tower for the north part of Roanoke County, VA next to the Splash Valley water park at the Green Ridge Recreation Center. It makes for a convenient billboard, seen from two Interstate roads.

You have a keeper in that Vitessa, the lens seems very sharp. I like the Giraffes couple.

That is a very good crop, PF! I like all of them but Out of the Fog is a favorite. Wet Web at full resolution is also an special one, with the spider posing.

Since the festivities weren’t supposed to start until the afternoon, I went out first thing in the morning to get some photos of the fog before it was gone.

Still learning the ropes on the D300s, so bear with me.
