Hey Tom -

You don't have to do an East Coast fall foliage tour to enjoy a great Packard meet. Perrysburg is just below Toldeo, OH - though the meet site will move about 25 miles down the road to Fremont for next year..

As a tyke, we travelled to Berwyn to visit my uncle (once or twice in dad's Exec) and the trip took all day - about eight hours (I'm told). Today, I can be in Perrysburg (from my hometown in W. Penna.) in about 3-1/2 hours. So, I bet you could make it there from Chi-town in about 4 hours.

While Hershey is one of those things that every old car enthusiast needs to experience at least once, there have been many more Packards at the Perrysburg event (even the Warren Museum meet in July) than I've ever seen on the show field at Hershey. The Chicagoland Packard owner's are usually well represented at Perrysburg.

On the way back, Sunday, you can check out the ACD Museum in Auburn, IN (about a half an hour south off _I-80/90, down I-69) and the Sudebaker Museum in South Bend to make it an unforgettable weekend.
