Text accompanying this photo reads: "Maybe they did have one of the race cars in mind when building that car! Here's DePalma in "299" at Sheepshead Bay, 1919."

While a comment in a later post says: "Remember that the Packard Grey Wolf in January 1904 set three world speed records for one kilometer, one mile, and five miles. Guess these don;t count since they were not actual races."

Couple more, from page 357.

First photo drew this comment: "This really is a great photo - notice the car has some customizing from the norm - no mascot, painted grill shutters, exhaust through the hood sides whether faux or real, and no addition of or deletion of wheel trim rings."

With later comments of: "I hesitated to post what I found with the photo, which misidentified the car as a 1940 Buick Special. The young lady was identified as Gloria Lupton."

And: "Chrome was becoming harder to get by 1940. The government placed it on the "endangered-species-list" due to war materials production. After '41 when almost all automobile production stopped. Auto accessories like spotlight and fog lights, that were normally chrome plated, were now only painted."

With a further comment of: "the Darrin Victoria was Packards most expensive semi-production car. They all left the factory full of chrome unless a buyer specified otherwise."

Mal,
I posted that photo in January on the Packard club Facebook page in January.

You can find out more here,
https://library.uta.edu/digitalgallery ... xI3Ib3q2s4x4L56kjXR8kubDg

When I found it, yes it was labeled as a Buick.

I asked I wonder if it is still around, I never heard.


There are a few pictures of FDR, that I posted as well.

Page 357 again. Photo came with this description: "Here's General George Patton in a big Packard during the VJ Day parade in Boston in 1945. The Revere, MA fire department apparently traveled in style. Every man in the crowd is wearing a proper hat, no backwards baseball caps".
