Packard was an American luxury automobile marque built by the Packard Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan, United States. The first Packard automobiles were produced in 1899, and the last Detroit-built Packard in 1956, when they built the Packard Predictor, their last concept car.The company was considered the preeminent luxury car before World War II, and built aircraft engines for the Allied war effort. Owning a Packard was prestigious, and surviving examples are found in museums, car shows and automobile collections.

In the beginning, all Packards had a single-cylinder engine until 1903. The first Packard 4-cylinder engine was introduced as the Model K in 1903, and the first six-cylinder engine was introduced as the Series 1-48 Six in 1912. Packard produced its "Twin Six" model series of 12-cylinder cars from 1915 to 1923. The Packard Eight was introduced in 1930 and the V8 appeared in 1955, one year after Buick and Chrysler and a few decades after Cadillac and Lincoln. All Packard engines were flathead engines until the last few years of operations. Packard vehicles featured innovations, including the modern steering wheel, air-conditioning in a passenger car, and one of the first production 12-cylinder engines, adapted from developing the Liberty L-12 used during World War I. Packard bought Studebaker in 1953 and formed the Studebaker-Packard Corporation of South Bend, Indiana. The 1957 and 1958 Packards were actually badge engineered Studebakers, built in South Bend.

A stock certificate is issued by businesses, usually companies. A stock is part of the permanent finance of a business. Normally, they are never repaid, and the investor can recover his/her money only by selling to another investor. Most stocks, or also called shares, earn dividends, at the business's discretion, depending on how well it has traded. A stockholder or shareholder is a part-owner of the business that issued the stock certificates.
