Out at the PPG on Sunday, I was told that Chrysler made Packards. And not by just one person, I had two different people tell.

I used a copper "Chore Boy" scrubber in mine. Actually I think it was 3. Just use the tip of a flat blade screwdriver to poke it through the holes in the cap, and don't forget to oil it as well.

Well to keep a rather long story short, for my birthday in 1969 my father gave me a Matchbox Yesteryear 1930 Packard Victoria toy car. After I opened my gift, my dad, proceeded to tell me that when he was a boy, (just my age that day) the car that he wanted most in the world was a Packard. He could not however tell his father that. you see, my grandfather worked for Cadillac, and to have
his son tell him that he didn't want a Cadillac was as treasonable as telling him that he was a Yankees fan, not a Tiger fan. That toy became my favorite from that moment on, and was the only Matchbox that never let anyone else play with. Growing up, the Packard name was tantamount to nirvana. After my dad passed, I used some of his insurance money to purchase my Clipper in his memory.

I was at the Ypsilanti Orphan Car Show Sunday, and had a couple of guys ask me what the hood ornament on Clipper represented and if it had a name. Honestly, I've often wondered this my self. They were familiar with the Goddess and the Cormorant but not this one.

Does anyone know?

If you have the time while you're in Florida, you should check out the Tampa Bay Automobile Museum. No Packards, but an interesting collection of cars including a terrific recreation of the 1770 Cugnot, the world's first self propelled vehicle.

Watched "Tea for Two" last night and the character played by Bill Goodwin drove a Packard roadster. Being that this was a film from Hollywood in the 50's there are no badges or identifying names on the car, but you certainly can't miss that radiator shell or the lines on the hood.

The 1956 Clipper Deluxe was also available only as a 4 door sedan.

Try John Pinto. His website is jpintoweb.com and the address is P O Box 43533 Philadelphia, PA, 19106 Phone is 215-739-1132. He did the front pwr ant for my 56 Clipper, but he should be able to do the rears as well. Turn around was less than 4 weeks with Independence Day thrown in.

The August issue of Collectible Automobile has a article on the 'Myth'. My first impression was, WTF was he thinking. Then I sort of liked it, but now I'm back to yuck. Tomorrow I may change my mind again.
