Packard is right, but not the year in Frank's shot. Anyone know the year?

Your a tricky one Walter...dont give much of a pic here. The hood ornament is in the classic Art Deco style, which ran its course from the late twenties up until the end of the war. The winged angel with the extended wheel was used on a number of Packards during the decade of the thirties and into the very early forties. From the your pic, and looking at the hood nose curviture with the ornament mounted on the crome rail, it would have to be a 41, the last year that this detail was used on this car. If I remember correctly the wings would light up a amber color when the running lights were on.

You are absolutely right, emptyquiver, a 1941 Packard.
