What birds in the 1940s would have seen (amongst many things, including Spitfires).

1941 Packard Super-8 180 Custom LeBaron, 1:18 scale. Seats seven, and had one of the first car air-conditioners.

Extra fact: After the US entered the War in 1941, Packard mass-produced the Rolls-Royce Merlin aircraft engine, while Rolls-Royce still built each one by hand.

  • Sometimes I wish somebody build a time machine just to go back to 1940s and 1950s to drive cars like this. Look at it's design, it's amazingly amazing!

  • Now that looks like the pinnacle of luxury in the 40s, it would certainly make a bold statement today, ah i was always convinced RR were con artists. Thanks for posting John, that is just stunning! And another note, those white walls are fantastic.
