Well, it was only a matter of time before the entire branch of corporate America joined in on the craze. Publishing the first in a series of articles centered on the "hot rod and custom" scene, FedEx's "Custom Critical" division is featuring a piece about a '41 Packard restyled in tribute to Clark Gable by Hall of Famer, John D'Agostino. Gable, renown for his love of thirties' sleds, apparently sold a custom '39 Pack built by "Dutch" Darrin and bought a '41 model from coach builders Bohman & Schwartz (from which D'Agnostino patterned after). Viewing the car is clearly a sovereign experience and one can't help but to fall majestic near the candy maroon highlighted by tons of chrome. However, upon further observation, you'll notice one slight difference…Gable's '41 Pack wasn't a flatbed paperweight.
