FrontRunners: Everybody Loves Raymond
consider the 1934 Packard 12 to be the best car that the company ever
made. Raymond Dietrich designed the vehicle, giving it a raked back, wide cowl,
long hood, and tall radiator. Dietrich began his career in 1913 as a delineator
(a maker of full-size car renderings) and went on to establish his own design
firm in Detroit. On October 28, a 1934 Packard 12 will make an appearance among
hundreds of other collector vehicles at the first Concours d’Elegance Las Vegas (www.lasvegasconcours.com). The event will take place
on the 18th fairway of the TPC at the Canyons golf resort.
