Just one more reason to skip the rest of year 2020 and go straight to 2021. Depressing news.

Thanks everybody for a fantastic topic with personal anecdotes and pictures. I am constantly impressed with the quality of the topics, and the huge amount of information...some information is someone's recall that will now be exhibited on this forum and not lost to history. The Packard car is very, very fortunate to be represented by the aficionados
of this forum.

Very interesting.....Bolt on, stock brake pedal and Master Cyl and Packard wheels on my 51-200
also the same bolt on and my 53 with power brakes. I have seen dozens of questions and answers about the feasibility of front disc brake setups, there's usually talk of pedal geometry and stroke, bore size, relocating or changing size and placement of master cyls. etc..
Please don't let this subject die, I'm very interested and would like to hear from everyone that has a thought, pro/con and feasibility.
Now that there appears to be a straight add on disc brake setup, I'm wondering now, since this setup is available, do I really, really need to change?

Not to say you're wrong, If the car has a front stabilizer a loud noise can be generated when you hit highs and lows in the road. Check the stabilizer bushings too.

I have a convertible and I'm prone to leaving the top down. But if I think the car will be laid up for a month or so I will raise the top, the latches are about 4 or 5 inches away from locking. After about a week the weight of the raised top has slowly restretched the material and I can easily latch the top. Also, I have left the raised top in the midday sun and the top will slowly re stretch too. My top has lasted me almost 25 years.....your mileage may vary.
