Vintage Classic Cars-1929 Packard Phaeton

This post features just the 1929 Packard Phaeton on display at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automotive Museum in Hood River, Oregon (WAAAM).

For me, and I admit to having a lot of favorites, one of the highlights of the WAAAM tour was a 1929 Packard Phaeton.

In general, Packard made a first-class automobile. Maybe their shortcoming, and why they went out of business was, that they made them too well. They couldn't compete in a world where at one time others were producing "planned obsolescence".

I'm old enough to remember the last of the Packards. My uncle was a dealer and I got to ride in his. It was a fine automobile...much better built than most domestic cars of the era.
