My heart says Packard, but not enough to overrule my head 

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

As much as I like the style and look of the Packard, I don't like it enough to vote against the CADILLAC.  It defines success in the Fifties.

I'll take the Packard even if we are now in the terminal period.

I have to go with the Packard, it may have been the end of the road for Packard, but I think the style was more modern looking-smooth & sleek. The Cadillac is nice, but it just looks more bulbous and bloated.

Packard, without hesitation.  Maybe I'm influenced too much by its new V8, the torsion bar suspension, and other advances, but its styling is timeless.  Besides, the picture above almost matches a favorite Brooklin in my Packard section.

Usually, I'd go for the Cadillac, but this Packard takes my breath away.
