Cool footage, Ross - thanks for posting. Packards galore, and a host of other oldies, some of which I recognized, many I did not. And like you say, Howard, 'the crosswalk' would seem to have yet to be invented!! Merry Christmas to all. Chris.

You make a very good point, Steve. I was watching an episode of 60 Minutes a while back and they were interviewing a scientist (his name escapes me) and he said (and I'm paraphrasing here...) 'the stupidest thing we can do when this thing is all over, is to set the pins back up and continue bowling the same game; if we can't learn some vital lessons from this, and start doing a whole LOT of things very differently, we're not very smart as a species.' When you look at just the reduced pollution in the smog in major cities from the decreased air and car traffic, it should be abundantly clear that a huge difference COULD be made in a very short time if we all got on the same page. Am I hopeful?? No comment. Chris.

AMEN to that Ernie & Joe!!! I'm fairly new at this and had booked my first Packard Car Show in (near) San Francisco, California for last June (I think it was!!) and was disappointed when everything got cancelled. Not sure what 2021 will end up like, but hopefully with the vaccine rollout, we can get this thing behind us and resume 'normal' activities and 'get out of our caves' a bit more next year! Would like to take this opportunity to wish all my fellow Packard Informationians as Merry a Christmas as is possible, and optimistic good wishes for the coming New Year. Chris

Yes Mal, once you see it blown up like that, I 'get the picture'. Thanks for clarifying that.
...one might expect to see a bird fly out of the plumage on that hat!!! Chris.

That is a great photograph. It gives one a sense of how long the vehicle is, to see the distance between the driver, the dog and the lady with the exotic hat. Is that THREE spares attached to the back?? Doesn't bode well for tire reliability in the day... The picture really 'captures the moment'; it draws one in and commands attention. Chris.

Hey John, I'm among the 132 and I sure can't help you in identifying the Packard, but I did get a chuckle out of the 'fishing hole' exaggeration on the potholes!! Should maybe try that with the Department of Highways around here some time. Chris.

Chris ain't you glad you and I only have half a V-12??

Yes John, I AM glad I have a Six. I love the car and hey, it's still a Packard, right??... It's within my retired budget and the technology is such that I can work on it myself. However, SOMEWHERE down the road, I want, and will get an O/D installed and functioning on it. Chris.

Oleclipper55owner,

That is an excellent video. If viewing that kind of machine shop artistry doesn't make a Packard owner's mouth water, nothing will!! But I can sure see where Dave's rebuild numbers come from, after watching it!! $50K for that machining job and reinstall, doesn't seem much of a reach at all. Having said that, if a guy's going to do it, that's certainly a controlled environment where it sounds like the machinists have lots of experience with Packards. Were it one's own vehicle, it would certainly instill confidence that the job was done right. Chris.
