Packard please. Near the end of the line but still a fine product.

Cadillac for me but I like both. Personally I liked the 53 Packard better that the 54 because of the full rear wheel well cutouts.

OMG!  I love both, but the CADILLAC wins due to its much more modern look and styling.  The Packard is beautiful, but extremely dated.  And just for the record, I'm going to make a revelation.  When I vote on these "Which One's?", it is always based on LOOKS and STYLING only!  Perhaps others do that too, but I also know some folks are sentimental with regard to engines, performance, and horsepower, among other things.  For me, my vote is always strictly on LOOKS!

Cadillac by far, it was all new in '54 and made so many other care look dated, including the Packard

Caddy is classic.  Never cared for the frown on the Pachard.

Cadillac styling is classier by far.  This one in red is gorgeous!

Add to George's post I do not vote by the color or exact car shown's wheels or minor trim removed or added.  I vote on the car model for the year, styling/design.  Wheels, color & trim can usually be changed easily. A butt wort can generally be removed as well as skirts, etc.

Cadillac had the flash, the glitz, and everything else they could pile on.  Packard was smooth and ageless, with just a bow to the flamboyance of the 50's.  Packard is my choice.
