The old style dashboard on this 1920 Packard really caught my eye. It sure looks different from what we see today. Different ignition, guages, and the old style steering wheel... Pretty cool for a 90 year old car, I thought.
The thing that struck me most about this car though wasn't the history, it was the owners. Shortly after I took this picture, a couple who owned the car came out of the hotel to get ready for a drive. The woman got in the back of the car and started moving some things around and the man was tinkering around up front in the engine area. I walked up and asked if they minded my taking a few pictures. On this, they were very friendly. The woman really surprised me though with, "Just let us move our piece of junk out of the way for you."
Now I know theirs wasn't the fanciest car out there, but I couldn't believe their modesty. Unbelievable!
One last point on this image... I entered it into a contest recently with the Denver Digital Photography Group. Their August contest had the theme "Transportation" and thanks to votes from the members, I won! Woohoo!
