Don't know if Mr. McGahey owned a 1941 Packard too, but both the newspaper article as well as the (poor) image below indicate an earlier build year.

Now, this was unexpected. His Duesenberg was available with built-in bar in front of the rear seats too. It reads as if he knew this.

If -> this source is to be believed, then the talk revolves around a 1932 Duesenberg Model J Victoria Coupe. With that the memories of the a.m. lady take shape.

Al (acolds), thank you for fulfilling Randy's desire. To know, that he had us in mind is deeply moving.
Thank you for 12 good years at PackardInfo, your sense of humor and your Christmas cards. Godspeed Randy Berger!

...Okay, does anyone know why I can't add any more links??? I've tried to add to this post, create a new reply, etc and every time it sends me to a blank page. It took me three tries to get the above links on this post. Using Chrome, fully updated. Never seen anything like this before, and I'm on a lot of forums. Is there a limit to pictures/link per post??


Kevin (kevinpackard), your words contain a mixture of real events and hypotheses. I'm almost convinced that the error was within the last links, you've tried to post.

Open in new window

Steve (58L8134), the 1932 Packard Deluxe Eight 903 bears a certain resemblance to another car, I have seen somewhere.

Open in new window


As a side note related to your "The car is an absolute knockout but driving it would be uncomfortable...", I have little use for beautiful things without function, especially when they had a function but were altered afterwards in favor of beauty.
