I haven't really bothered to look at a car like this before. No matter what the condition of this is, I'm struck by how beautiful the C Pillar line is.

Here is a similar car in much better shape:

The Soviets thought this Packard was so great that they copied the design for their own ZIS 110.

In researching the car I found the post on TTAC, and I posted a comment on there as I thought my experience shared some insight. The girlfriend of the owner was very nice, and it sounds like trim pieces have been stolen off the car. (Although I couldn't notice anything missing from the outside)

So they have a bad taste in their mouth for anyone who shows interest. But lucky for me she was genuine and was down to talk to me. I could tell she was glad the boyfriend wasn't there. She said that weird looking stuff is some kind of rust sealant.

There was a '50 in the local free rag (no link). It looked to be in pretty nice shape for $5K. Here are my street finds for the week.

first shot is some of the best sky and light ever captured on this blog.
