Joe, I do the same thing. Shift into second gear at standstill, then first
That uses the synchro of second gear to slow and stop the input shaft of the trans.

Thanks Kev, I just donated. I'm gussing most of us are in some type of car club that has a yearly member's fee, so donating once in a while to this "club" that helps us all out is certainly a reasonable thing to do. Looking forward to another year on packardinfo!

I think the picture Joe referenced is from Richard Michell's book about oil.
I asked Richard for his suggestion on oil for my packard, and am now running 10w40.
my clipper blog
You can read his oil suggestion there.

Pretty cool. It really takes skill and muscle to handle one of these cars on any type of speedy or race situation. It's fun to imagine the stock car or other racers in the old days fighting the steering and other mechanical systems...I would be interested to know more about the car.

Thanks Paul,
yes, that is the A81 autobahn on a quiet section where it is unlimited, and there is not much traffic. Closer to the cities the speed limit is around 70mph, but out in the country you can go faster (depending on if traffic allows it)

I do have some wind noise coming from the vent windows in the front doors. That would be something nice to improve one day. The rubber is from steele, and they fit pretty well. I guess they need some glue or something to seal it better to the door.

Like Fozzy bear and kermit in a studebaker.... Movin right along...
Love that overdrive transmission. Seeing as how max horsepower is listed at 3600rpm, cruising at 70 mph and 2300 rpm seems pretty reasonable.

My sister in law got married a few weeks ago, so I had the honor of driving the bride and groom to the reception. Even a coupe can be used in a wedding! Using the car in the wedding was good motivation for me to give it a good cleaning, and fix a bunch of little things in the interior (headliner and trim around the rear window). No changes on the gas filler, just driving and enjoying when the weather is good.
I used to change my oil before putting away for the winter, but now I just do it sometime in the fall.
The car performed very well in the wedding. I was a little nervous, but she ran like a top!
Thanks to Cathrin Bronni Photography.

Hi Ross. That looks awesome. What is your procedure for re-painting the gas and temp gauges? Do you mask over the white marks for full/empty etc, or repaint them in white after spraying with the red? I still have to re-do mine.

Disconnect the vacuum line to the distributor also when setting your idle timing. Idle speed should also be pretty low 500 or so also for most acurate setting.
