Thanks for all the encouragement from John and Mr. Ride Decide.
I have started making plans, maintenance and repairs.

I liked Kevin's comment about real driver cars. I have two old "drivers". My Clipper Jack and a 1939 LaSalle survivor. I have never owned a car that was TOO nice to drive.

We'll, Salado it is. Now I need to get my brother (from HillBilly Packards ) down there too.

The black 56 just shows-off some meaningful chrome styling.
Just beautiful lines accented by the trim and panels.
Not the excesses of the other autos of the period.
Yes, the years only make it more to admire.

The A/C appears to grow into a group project.
Involving lots of Christmas elves.


It is snowing here in South Dakota.
May look like the North Pole by Morning.
Merry Christmas -- early!

Ive heard this as "bathtub styling" even back in the 1950s.
As for "pregnant elephant?"
I hope you have nothing against elephants.
And without 'pregnancy', who of us would be here?

Yes, beautiful car! I just might drive over to Mankato and pick it up. (I am just $20,000 short)
Santa! Oh, Santa! ...

I am sure the Kevin can figure out this unit.
I have seen only one A/C that was in the trunk of a 1941 - 160.
I am just glad to see responses for this thread, whether parts, donations, good wishes -- they all count.

Kevin is a cool guy, but even a cool guy needs A/C in LA & So Cal.

Keep up the support!

JW,
Thanks for the heads up.
I have always enjoyed the posts and pictures from Salado since joining PI.
I wanted to attend and promised to do that when I retire.
Well, I retired last month, so I will put it on my calendar.

Now, will I bring my 41 Clipper or not? Tow? Drive?
I will work on that in coming months.

Jim Hollingsworth told me about the Salado Meet at my first Packard meet in Des Moines in 2008. His death was a great loss
He befriended me and encouraged me to keep working on my 41 Clipper before he restored his. I had the privilege of being on the judging team that gave his 41 a First place. See photo link below of our two 41 Clippers at Brandon meet.

Long story, BUT now I need to get to work on getting to Salado.
I would enjoy meeting Jim's friends and the four Packard Clubs. My state (SD) does not have a Packard club.
I am only 992 miles away from Salado here in SD. but my Clipper is at my brothers place in MO,
just a mere 587 miles from Salado. !!!!

Thanks Again
Dan

Flackmaster,

I just sent $50 via PayPal.
My PayPal comment was "A/C Xmas for Kevin"

I have not been active on Packard Info in last two years.
BUT I greatly appreciate Kevin's work and this website.
I have relied on others comments, posts and the vast information available here.

I am a recipient of Kevin's generosity. He has gifted us all by establishing, expanding and supporting this website over the years.

SO, Merry Christmas, BIG KEV.

Dan Leininger

I agree its a 42 dash for all reasons cited already.
Also, here are 2 old photos of my 41 Clipper front seat and steering wheel. Rectangular instrument gauges.

Re: Jim Hollingsworth

The December 2012 issue of the Cormorant News Bulletin has a nice tribute article on Jim Hollingsworth. It is on page 5 with three photos.

There are several hilarious stories about his life-sized stuffed gorilla, Greta, that occasionally rode in his Packard to the Salado TX meet. Greta got lots of "thumbs up" from passers-by on the highway as well as screams from surprised cleaning maids who came up her sitting in the motel room or bath.

Great sense of humor.
