Interesting Photo from the Pre-Rose Parade Events

Every year, the Rose Parade organizers provide a venue where visitors can see the floats as they are put together. There are also quite a few antique cars in the mix; here’s an image of a 1938 Packard Standard 8. This particular car was exported by Franklin Roosevelt to Russia, for the exclusive use of Joseph Stalin. It has since been returned to the US (not sure how long) for restoration. It is the first image provided below; I’m not sure about the info for the second car shown.
