Few American cars could match the beauty, styling and engineering of the Packard motor car. From its birthplace in Warren, Ohio in 1899 to its final days in Detroit, Michigan and South Bend, Indiana in the late 1950s, this program chronicles the history of the Packard automobile through interviews with Packard owners, vintage film and Packard archive photographs. Hosted by Edward Herrmann.
