A Dietrich-Bodied Packard fit for “The World's Greatest Entertainer”.
Al Jolson was a Rock Star, decades before Rock and Roll was invented.
“The World’s Greatest Entertainer” was, at the height of his career,
America’s best-paid performer, and thus could afford to drive
any automobile on the market.
In 1932, Jolson took delivery of a Dietrich-Convertible, Sedan-Bodied,
Twin Six Packard, reportedly one of just two such cars created.

Chauffeur Perkins drives Zephyrinus to Sunday's Missa Cantata in the local village.
As can be seen, the current Zephyrinus Charabanc needs replacing.
Perkins has evidently got his eyes on the quality 1932 Packard (see, above).
