This recently came across my screen via an email from a classmate of mine. It's a 1937 Packard, the only one built. The couple standing by it are the owners.

He bought it for $16,000 about 10 months ago. It had been in a garage for many many years.
He polished and waxed it and put on a clear coat of paint. Did some minor engine work and it started right up.

It has 40,000 miles on the speedometer.

Word is he was offered $300,000 but didn't take it. No way to verify, but interesting, nonetheless.

Oddly enough, my grandfather had a Packard Sportsman (a rare I6 engine). His son, my uncle, had a '36 sport coupe, which as a 3-year old, with my grandmother, rode in it from Atlantic City to Miami for the uncle's wedding.

I spent most of the trip luxuriating on the hat shelf.
