Ward Leader

The Caddy and Packard were probably owned by a ward boss.

If they were parked in a no-park zone, the chance of getting a ticket or of being towed ranged from slim to none.

There are laws for the commoners and ones for the really important people!

"No parking between signs"

Either the Caddy or the Packard appear to be in a No Parking Zone.

Tony Car

1941 Fleetwood Sixty Special, $2,195. That was some serious money in those days! Beautiful.

Tony Neighborhood

You're right, that is a 1941 Fleetwood Sixty Special, and that looks like a Packard parked in front of it. Nice neighborhood!
