Packard sightings...

I live in a very small town in rural, south-central British Columbia, named Princeton. One of the province's main east/west highway routes (#3) goes through our village and we occasionally get visits from car rallies of different sorts. Today a group of upward of a dozen cars pulled into town and over half of them were Packards! I was able to talk with a couple of owners and got bits and pieces of their story. There were a couple of absolutely gorgeous Packard 12's, a '41 180 and a few others I only got glances at, but every car I saw was a show piece. I did not have my camera with me (drat!) or I could post a couple of pics. I did talk to one owner through our driver's windows and he said he was on this site, so maybe by request of this post - he could fill us in a bit more on the route and details of the trip. It seemed the cars all had US plates on them, but from all over the central and west coast states. At any rate, it made for quite a stir in our sleepy little village and everyone was out doing walk-arounds of the historic gems - lots of oohs and ahhs!!! A real treat! Chris.
