The Classic Packard is definitely one of those memorable “old time” gangster cars from the Bugsy Sigel and Al Capone flicks. Larry Woods and Hot Wheels captured it essence in the new school line called Larry’s Garage. This is the second color installment of this Packard, the first being a letdown orange color. I think the red sets the car off along with the red colored hubs wrapped in white wall rubber tires. And lucky for me this happens to be one of the “chase” vehicles with Larry Woods Initials on the base.
I also picked up this tough looking Larrys Garage Bone Shaker. The gold spokes sets this car off! Along with the other gold accents. This casting has always caught my eye since its debut, but no even more so with the attention to detail with the colors and graphics. The purchase was a no brainer for me.
From my understanding Larry’s Garage is a tribute to the man,the myth, the legend in the diecast world. Mr. Woods has received his own line to showcase the pieces he has designed,had a hand in working on, or just his favorite castings.
