Too good a day to waste, weather in Baltimore County perfect for cruising to Speedwell Garage and visiting Ross Miller in the shop with my 52 200. Ross was putting the finishing touches on the spark plug wires on an engine!

Good Morning all...Took Miss Prudence for her normal 40 minute Sunday Morning Day Break ride this morning. I opened the garage door and found myself looking at a Coyote just across the street. We looked at each other and he sort of seemed to shrug and walk on up the street. He was NOT impressed with me!

Miss Prudence caught on the third four second crank and I let her warm up a bit, backed her out and we headed off. Lots of folks out walking as it was only about 80 or so at sun up.

Nice ride...no other old cars out running around...one additional Coyote trotting down the middle of Cactus Road, he just moved over a bit and we just slipped by him and went on down the road. We had a fan belt squeak for a couple of blocks and then it quieted down.

A big black SUV followed us for a few blocks, we were on a tight one lane each way road...when we hit a stretch of two lanes each way, the SUV passed us and a big hairy arm came out of the drivers window with a big (chubby) Thumb Up! NICE! It made Prudence's day.

Notice the generator adjustment bracket? That's the way they should be. Different than most other makes, but correct for a Packard V-8. Sometimes there is room on the RH inner fender, but a belt just a bit too long will cause the bracket to hit the inner fender and prevent correct adjustment. Beautiful engine.

Good Morning...Miss Prudence took her normal Sunday morning drive at sun up...nice 30 minute drive...pretty quiet streets in our semi rural area...at one point two Coyotes were trotting down the road, going the same way we were going and paying us any attention...I guess they don't know what a Packard is!
