Re: Are 57 and 58 Packards really Packards

The 55-56 Packards were built by the Studebaker-Packard Corporation. They were not built at East Grand Blvd, but the infamous Connor Ave. plant. The S-P Corp for financial reasons shut down Detroit operation. Would you not accept the Predictor or the 57 derivation because it was built at South Bend? The S-P Corp had the right to badge those cars as Packards and they deserve the respect of all Packard owners. There are still many Packard folk who don't like any Packard from 1948 up.
Enough finger pointing - just enjoy your ride(s).
