Cohort Outtake: Two Disparate Americans in Austria

This shot posted at the Cohort by T. Minor grabbed me before I realized where it was shot, thanks to the rather disparate shapes and colors of these two cars. But finding them side-by-side in Austria is the icing on the Packard’s colorful cake.

Chrysler minivans aren’t unusual in Austria at all, actually, since they were assembled there for years by Steyr-Magna. Who knows when the ’56 Packard Patrician sedan found its way to Austria; I didn’t see it when I lived there! But that’s not saying much. More than likely it’s a relatively recent immigrant.
