Shortly after claiming the best in show prize at the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival and Concours d’Elegance, a 1938 Packard 1605 Super Eight convertible sedan estimated to be worth well over a million dollars rolled into an adjacent pond because the owner forgot to apply the parking brake. The festival president, Carolyn Vanagel, told local reporters from the Island Packet, “This was most unfortunate. We feel badly for the owners.” Just goes to show you: always remember the parking brake.
