FYI that oil bath air cleaner is for a 4 barrel carb only.

A couple of pics from the local VFW Charity Car Show. This was the first show I've had the Packard at this year do to COVID cancellations.

So a pic of my Clipper, a surprise, surprise another Packard, a 1930 733 Convertible Sedan.

PS The 733 took Best of Show, in a field of over 250 cars.

Well we are another year in, actually April was the website's anniversary. Just prepaid the website hosting fees for the next year. So lights on for another 365. Hopefully by this time next year, COVID will be a memory, and we will all have our cars out more than this year. The first post on this website was April 18, 2006. So we are on our 14th year. We've made some good friends here over the years and this past year lost some great folks like Randy to the ravages of time. Thanks to everyone that has supported the website through sharing knowledge and helping financially. The website is run as a hobbyist website, and is not a business. Nor is not directly associated with any of the official Packard organization. So the website has survived and grown thanks to the donation of time, knowledge, document content and financial contributions of its Packard owners/members. This allows the website to remain an agnostic free resource for all Packard owners.

Thank you to everyone that has made and kept this possible!

I think the 288 is a radiator style/configuration, vs motor reference. It's probably just a fluke that it matches a Packard motor of the same designation.

I'd like to know if there is a physical thickness difference between the standard and A/C ones. Or what is the radiator marking to designate an A/C rad.

This is one of the reasons, during all the times I was under the Clipper working on it when I had the car up on jack stands, I always had a backup jack stand positioned right next to me to catch the load before my body did. A little extra insurance. So if the car was on two jack stands, I had a 3rd right next to me. If the car was on four, then I had a 5th right next to me. Also always tried to use jack stands that were completely overkill rated. So I generally was using 6 ton ones.

Very sad news indeed. Randy has been with the website since the very beginning and I meet him online at AACA before then. I only had the pleasure of his company one time when we were both at the Packard Museum show in Warren many moons ago. God speed my friend. Hopefully he is conducting his model trains in a better place.

When I shipped the Clipper from Calif to Chicago, I used a company called United Routes. Which I think is a broker of sorts. But the same driver that picked up the car was the same driver that delivered it 5 days later. It was in the bottom deck of an enclosed two-story hauler towards the front on the truck and was in the same position when he delivered it. Basically he told me it shared company with 3 corvettes headed east. Those were picked up after me and delivered before me. So the car never was moved once loaded. The driver was local to the Chicago area.
