Hello Everyone,

Just sharing/tooting my own horn, that I successfully registered and passed inspection in Massachusetts this week! Now I have officially and legally resurrected a 49 Deluxe Sedan that was sitting since 1979! Not perfect, but runs and drives strong! Thanks all for the help, Iím still going to need it Iím sure! Iíve driven the car for two days now and so many people have stopped me to ask or share stories. Definitely stood out in the parking lot at work.

Lookout for me on the Metro-Boston Area roads!

Congratulations on the big event! Your comment brings back similar feelings of my own so many years ago when I first put the plates on my first Packard and headed off on my first drive.

Congrats on getting the car on the road.

I think most of our cars can be considered 'works in progress'.

Congratulations from out in the Arizona Desert where there are a number of Packards running around. Every Packard returned to the road is a success! Ernie in Arizona

Congratulations on returning one more Packard to the road, hope you enjoy many years of driving it and experiencing its fine qualities.

Here's what I would have seen had I been in that parking lot. The newer cars become invisible...
