Did the father of the late Roger Ailes (of Fox News fame) work at the Packard plant in Warren, OH?

In episode three of series "The Loudest Voice in the Room," Ailes is giving a speech to the townspeople of Warren, OH, in which he says his father worked at the Packard plant.

Knowing Ailes' history of "re-shaping" information to appeal to an audience, I was wondering if it was true his father worked at Packard.

Does anyone know what it sold for?

Say a person buys a Packard 120 coupe that is painted egg-yolk yellow and wants to have it repainted to its original color--whatever they may have been.

What would it cost for a paint job?

AS always

Garish paint jobs are rather off-putting

While I fully appreciate that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that there is no accounting for individual personal taste, but it is a challenge for me to appreciate magnificently styled and designed Pre-War Packards painted to look like a Mardi Gras float.

Evidently, there is an echelon of clients who prefer Packards with garish paint jobs. Or perhaps, clients buy them with the intention of repainting them.

I shutter to consider what a new paint job might cost.

How did Packard measure up against Roamer "the poor man's Rolls Royce"?

Did Packards ever have a hood ornament that doubled as a hood-release?

I was watching one of those auto-restoration "reality TV" shows and the host was examining a 1949 Buick for a trade in-services.

When he got ready to open the hood to examine the motor, he actually swiveled the hood ornament which released the hood latch.

Did Packard ever have a hood ornament that was a hood latch release?

I came across the photo of Eva Peron in a parade standing in what might be a Packard. Any thoughts?

On a recent episode of Chasing Classic Cars, Wayne Carini put up for auction a 1937 115 Packard coupe.

He was hoping to get $70,000 to $75,000, but had to settle for $68,500--I believe that was the selling price.

Interesting article about what the lackluster results at the Monetary Car Auction and what that says about the top 1%.
