so, I did some photo-editing in an effort to make it a bit more 'on'. 

As found:

4x Packard CV 'What If' design study   PS (1)

Lowered the body & chrome spear, altered the bumpers:

4x Packard CV 'What If' design study   PS (2)

Gave it a very slight chop, more bumper work and a bit larger wheel/tire:

As always, your comments are welcome.

Enjoy!

The "as found" indicates that it was already a modified car. I vote for the original and none of these. By the way it's blaspheme to remove the pelican from the hood of a Packard IMO.

@bob-jackman: Yes, Bob, the original was a 'what if' design study. I'm well aware of your preference for unmodified cars and believed that you'd come to somewhat appreciate modifications.  Sorry for offending with the photo-edits. It's not my intention. 

As for blasphemy in regard to Packards, cars are not Gods.

@tldaly I'm truly sorry as I thought the as found was presented as an original...my mistake. My second mistake was in making you believe that I think cars are God which they certainly not. In the future I will refrain from commenting on your what ifs as we don't need such friction on what should be a fun endeavor for us both.

@bob-jackman: Bob, Thanks for clarifying your comments. And please don't stop your commenting. A bit of friction/disagreement is healthy and often happens when people are passionate about the subject. I'm not upset or offended and hope that you're are not, as well.

Thanks, gents. BTW, I like the third picture but I'd leave the pelican on as well. It's iconic.

@jkuvakas: John, Your comment and suggestion is timely in that I did another edit on the third photo and added back the hood ornament. This is for you and is a peace offering for Bob Jackman. Enjoy!
