PICS: Here's one of John Kuvakas' "What If" design studies that's pleasing but seemed a bit 'off'........
so, I did some photo-editing in an effort to make it a bit more 'on'.
Lowered the body & chrome spear, altered the bumpers:
Gave it a very slight chop, more bumper work and a bit larger wheel/tire:
As always, your comments are welcome.
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!
Ahhhh...now the virtual world seems in balance!
