I am a real fan of that 1955 Packard 400.

I'm surprised with my choice on this one.  After going back and forth several times, I've settled on the LINCOLN.

As of 1955, Packard looked new, including the paint arrangement and wrap-around windshield.   The Lincoln was a warmed over oldie.  Under the hood, Packard was also all new.  Lincoln wasn't.  So it's Packard for me.

And here's mine, Brooklin #182

I am not a big fan of either car this year but prefer the styling of the Packard over the Lincoln; which looks more like a Mercury than something more expensive.  This changed dramatically in 1956 mind you!

Packard for me. Although not visible in this pic, those "Cathedral" taillights are fabulous!

Packard for me too, for the reasons stated.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

The Packard just looks more luxurious.

Never really cared for any Packard, so it is the Lincoln today by default.
