No, not the computer, the car. The first luxury vehicle in America. Unfortunately, due to WWI and financial hardship they are no longer made.

The last Packard–the classic American luxury car with the famously enigmatic slogan “Ask the Man Who Owns One”–rolls off the production line at Packard’s plant in Detroit,Michigan on this day in 1956.

If you have the chance today, catch a car show, see if you can find a Packard. They are a thing of beauty.
