Is it just me or is this exquisite?

Here's another interesting rig. It might take a minute to get the perspective.

Finally, a Packard (Licensed from RR??) from a PT boat.

That old Mack really is elegant. Great-looking wooden artillery wheels and hard-rubber tires. I'd guess it's chain drive too.
I'm not sure why someone would build a scaled-down tractor trailer, but to each, his own. There was a fully functional scaled-down Ferrari at this years Montery Classic.
The Packard V12 used in PT boats is a true Packard design and is unrelated to the RR engines they built under license later on. I asked this exact question when I saw one of these engines in a PT boat at Battleship Cove, Mass. about 10 years ago. I found a page that verifies this:

Absolutely! Trucks (of all sizes) are one of my favourite photographic targets, just behind interesting import cars/trucks, and to round off the top three list - of favourite photographic targets - I'd have to include station wagons...

And since we're kind of on topic, my station wagon pictures link, I need way more pictures of British or import examples of station wagons though...

Great pictures John. I love that old Mack. I used to know a guy who owned several old macks in that kind of shape, but none from the 20s.
