I noticed one more classic car at Disney California Adventure. A 1937 Packard Coupe parked at Oswald’s gas station on Buena Vista Street. This is 23 years older than the 1960 Rambler that I featured two days ago.
I find it fascinating that only twenty-three years separates the two designs. It’s evident that the car evolved much quicker in the early days. Consider that a 1998 model wouldn’t look nearly as different from what we see today. Though one dramatic shift is the overwhelming popularity now of SUVs.
While I’m sure this vintage, beautifully-restored Packard will look good in any light. The nighttime glow certainly adds another dimension. The warm light is nostalgic, and the shadows enhance the mystery.

That is such a beautiful and well-designed automobile! Great pic of it. I recently came across an abandoned 1952 Packard Patrician 400 on the side of the road in Texas, posted photos of it here: https://matthewtrader.com/1952-packard-patrician-400-abandoned-and-deteriorated-in-a-texas-field
I love taking pictures of old, unrestored cars too. Thanks for sharing.
