Great idea! Looks like our 1949 set, we have a few old Lionels also!

My vote would be for Sr cars approx 1930-1941. So says the man who's never owned one, but surely wishes he had.

Packard V8 engine color

Hi all:
Later senior Packard V8s were a bronze color for the block, with silver valve covers. Anyone know the correct formula/color is still provided by Bill Hirsch and if quality has changed over time?... I realize many did theirs a long time ago, and products and providers change. Looking for top quality paint and original color match.
cheers, Roger in NY

4 page B & W manual/folder for "Packard Custom Radio with Automatic Tuning and Favorite Station Selection" fair to good condition, some pencil writing on front, has been folded, minor soiling, complete and intact. Not sure but may have come with a '56 Patrician we once had? $15 including shipping.

Being a '58 Olds owner, I recently saw this on the Classic Oldsmobile site and thought someone might be able to use this pump + pickup for their Packard V8:

I've lived in MD, PA, NY, and VT, and they don't tax vintage cars or other antiques of any kind at all
My understanding is that VA does, the rate unknown.

Good info, more and more I think converting to manual makes a great deal of sense. I may get rid of BTV on my '58 Olds as well.

Modern (improved) fluids for Twin-Ultramatic?

I see that Dexron or Type F is generally recommended.

Is ATF+4 compatible? It's apparently a newer synthetic fluid used by modern Chryslers with superior characteristics regarding temperature stability and longevity, and is supposedly a Dexron type of fluid with friction modifiers that improve shifting characteristics, the latter having been a traditional weak point of TU?
