After test driving an 840-hp Dodge Challenger SRT Demon at the opening of the New York auto show in April, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo tried out a more tranquil set of wheels last week.
Cuomo marked the opening of the new Kosciuszko Bridge in New York City by driving Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1932 Packard across the first span. An avid car and motorcycle enthusiast, Cuomo announced in March that the state would repair the car, which FDR used while he was governor of New York. The Packard had been housed in the New York State Museum in Albany. Cuomo said in March: "I think I owe it to FDR, as an obligation within the society of governors, that I look after his baby."
