Well the Valdosta photo made the back of "The Cormorant News Bulletin". I wonder if the Packard archives at the Studebaker national museum has anything on this mystery.

Look at post #39


I've never heard of Mr. Turner but from the clearance between the front tire and the wheel arch of the front fender, it looks like maybe Mr. Turner came back for his missing engine.,,,

Looks like Col. Turner was a famous aviator in his day:

Just a note that the Cormorant News Bulletin, February 1995 had a photo of Valdosta, Georgia Packard dealer, John Williams at the wheel of the 1955 Caribbean, with the 3 girls in the back. This was the same photo that was in the October 1955 Packard News.

Friends

I grew up on the North side of Indianapolis in the 60's. My mother was an aviation writer for My Weekly Reader and other related peridodicals such as Read and Current Science.

We spent some time at Wier Cook Airport in Indianapolis as my father sometimes traveled for business (law publishing) and Mom was working working on two biographies of Glenn L. Martin. This involved her flying to Washington to do research..

I remembver the Gilmore hanger and I had some idea who he was. There was some commeration of an anniversary of a Congressioanal act establihsing commcercial airlines about 1963. It involved a Ford Trimotor flying across the country and Mom took the three of us out to see it. I was ecstatic to climb aboard although my brothers were much less enthused as they were never gearheads...


At any rate I remember us running around in the Gilmore Hanger and seeing his racing plane hanging from the rafters. The lion was long gone.

Obviously a different era.

Regards


John Harley

Yes, I sent that photo to Stuart Blond. See the John Williams dealer listing on this site for more information about Valdosta's Packard dealer.

The new DVD's from the Studebaker National Museum has the full film on the 25,000 mile run. It's called "A New Concept of Power".

If you like V8 Packards I would recommend volume 2 and 4.
