On his 1940 120, from his website:

"By 1989 I was tired of the Mercedes. I was ski racing competitively a lot at that time. We had a saturday race at Alpine Meadows in Lake Tahoe. Saturday night a major snowstorm hit and Sunday’s race was cancelled. So, I had a leisurely breakfast and read the Sunday paper. There it was, under Collector Cars—a 1940 Packard 120 coupe. I made an appointment to “look” at the car. It was love at first sight. The car came from Minnesota originally. Mrs. Furguson purchased the car new in 1940 and drove it until 1982. At that time, she sold it to a local farmer who had the engine and body work done and got the car about 95% complete. He ran out of gas on the project, and sold it to the person I bought it from. The car had 57,000 miles on it when I bought it and you’ve got to love the original upholstery. I only got about 3,000 miles out of the motor because the guy that rebuilt it previously didn’t line bore it, and it ate up all the bearings.

I rebuilt the engine and installed an overdrive while I was at it. Then I sent out the dash to be re-wood grained and had to remake the chrome pieces in the dash when the platers destroyed them. The car was originally a business coupe. It is now a club coupe as I found the rear jump seats in Georgia and installed them sometime back. When you open the trunk you’ll find the original spare tire with the Goodyear sticker still on it.
If it weren’t for that snowstorm, my first Packard and I may never have gotten together. I call it my snowstorm Packard."

Too bad Jim Hollingsworth isn't with us anymore. He was "Mr. 1940 Packard". I still have an autographed copy of his book on the 40 Packards.

I’d love to have them as 1940 is one of my favorite years (I’ve had three) but unfortunately cannot give anything remotely close to their value so can only hope they find a good home to a current 1940 Packard owner.

A big "Thank You" to Dallas for donating his 1940 Packard literature collection to the Packard Motor Car Foundation at the Packard Proving Grounds.

He had some holes in our 1940 collection and these will fill in those bare spots. Currently, our biggest project is the scanning, or digitization, of 40,000 images from the PMCC. Our volunteers have been at it for 1.5 years and we've scanned nearly 4,500 images. So we have a lifetime project on our hands.

Again, because of the generosity of Dallas we can grow our repository of Packard information.

Thanks to Dallas for helping us out.
