Steve, it's always good to have a reference source to know how the car felt and what was expected of it at it's time. I found one for my 47 Clipper where they said it's get up and go was like being stung by a bee. I just can't picture that, but for 1947 who knows what the pick up speed was from 0 to 60.

Packard Newbie, I remember hauling hay for 5 cents a bale and when it went up to 10 cents a bale, we thought we were rich.

Too much to copy, talks about the Classics also what's new for 1954. A lot of good information about the competition.

Future Packard?
Checkout the Popular Mechanics for Jan 1955, you won't be sorry. Shows pictures of making a Plymouth from a drawing to clay model to real car. Parade of 1955 Cars and the Changing of Automobiles and also some cars that started it all.
