Packard hood ornament

This place had a lot of junk and a few cars in various states of restoration. This Packard was almost fully restored. I believe the background was some tires leaning against a wall, hence the donut bokeh.

Another "old-fashioned thing" but this one is affectedly preserved

The white rim of the tires give the hood ornament an aura or halo effect. Nicely done.

It is an impressive hood ornament. My friend had one of those Packards with the straight eight engine. It was a fine automobile.
