Great machine...You are going to have a lot of fun getting her ready to drive...interesting about the ignition switch...if there is a number on it, you might be able to obtain the key code...I think Owen has said that there were about 250 codes...otherwise go to the oldest locksmith in town...I know for our Packard the blank turned out to be a standard one available at ACE Hardware...the lady just looked at the one old bent key I had and said 'Yup, how many do you want!'

We love our 49 and I did talk to her prior owner after we purchased her from a wholesaler...He was 83 when he sold the car...he had had a heart attack and the doctor told him to get his affairs in order...so he sold the Packard and lots of other stuff...and Damn! He did not die...go figure...Ernie

Good Evening Mal...Not too often as we tend to go to different places...perhaps two or three times a year. Dave also has a Model A Fodor...We might pass in the Model 'A's once or twice a year as well...We used to have breakfast now and again prior to Covid...Ernie in Arizona

Good Afternoon...I went to the ACE Hardware in Miss Prudence this morning and the old girl ran great...On the way home, I noticed David Packard sitting at the corner of one of the side streets off of Via Linda in his 48. We gave a toot to each other! Ernie in Arizona

Good Afternoon...It seems to me that Dave Packard needed a cable recently and found an Aircraft Cable that worked very well for him...at least I think it was David...you might want to PM him...Ernie in Arizona

Good Morning...I always wonder when cars are parked when still in the prime of their lives...what the problem was...perhaps it was the ignition switch...or the key was lost. Have you been able to join a local Packard Club to give you advice regarding folks to help awaken your special Packard? Clubs provide friendship, advice, recommendatons of folks to help with many of the tasks ahead of you...all of us are willing to lend a hand...How neat to have a family time capsule...Ernie in Arizona

Good Morning...For me, the purchase of Studebaker...which was so poorly investigated that Packard did not realize what poor shape they were in...pretty much sealed the deal!
Otherwise, I think the 57s might well have made the street...and they should have stayed at Grand Avenue...In my business experience using consultants...is a bad idea...they just borrow your watch and then tell you what time it is...just my humble opinion...Ernie in Arizona

Yes...I agree with you. Our cars are so unique and interesting that curiosity gets the best of people...A friend of mine has a sign that says 'Please don't touch unless nude'! Seems to have worked so far! Ernie

PS...Had Prudence at the ACE Hardware the other day and a fellow with a new Maserati closed his door and came over to check out Miss Prudence...I did not go over and look at his machine...I just smiled...and answered his questions...Ernie in Arizona

Good Thursday morning...Took Miss Prudence to breakfast this morning to meet Lynn Wright, a Model A friend at a little outdoor cafe mid way between our homes...parked her with the window down in clear view of the restaurant patio. Prudence and the A drew a good few on-lookers...one young lady walked up to Prudence, walked all around her and then stuck her head in the open window and looked around...then looked over at Lynn and I (the only ones on the patio) and waved to us and said 'Do you guys own these cars'. we nodded and she flashed a big thumbs up and went on her way...Lynn and I just winked at each other and went on with breakfast...Ernie in Arizona
