A few facts - not a rant...

The Packards International meet was cancelled last week, NOT the PAC National Meet (at least not yet - stay tuned, as this will be evaluated).

While PI sent emails informing members of the upcoming meet weeks and months ago, they did NOT inform any member that the meet was canceled (unless you were signed up to attend a tour, show a car, or sell parts). The phone calls went out Thursday, March 12 about the cancellation. Several members had already flown to California by this time. The website stated that the meet was canceled due to "Heavy Rain" - a few hours later it was changed to "With the concerns of the Corona Virus..."

As to "No planning," this virus hit the USA back in January. Certain federal officials did NOTHING to prepare.

KECA, Anthony's "other" radio station in Los Angeles, was sold to what later became the ABC Network (American Broadcasting Company), when the FCC ordered NBC to split their NBC-Blue and NBC-Red stations in the 1940s. (KECA is now the radio station KABC.) So, the later ECA dash board plates would mention only KFI.

ECA, Inc. in Los Angeles took on Ford's M-E-L lineup in 1958 (Mercury, Edsel and Lincoln). By the time the dealership, located at 10th and Hope, closed in 1962 only Lincolns and Mercurys were being sold. Up in San Francisco, the Chrysler lineup was being sold into the 1960s. Around 1975, it became British Motors.

As at past PAC National Meets, there should not be a fee to visit (and buy) at the indoor swap meet. The Packards will be in the hotel's parking lot.
