Sorry to hear the loss of your friend. He sounded like a great guy to talk with, and saw and participated in a lot of Automotive history being made.

Godspeed.

I know what you mean PackarDon. Believe me, I've been tempted to pursue these 2 cars. But I've got 3 cars ahead of them in my storage. For the money, these are a bargain.

I thought these 2 1956 400's were a pretty good deal.

Sad to hear. He along with others in the v-8 Packard club really helped us all with the oil pump conversions. I enjoyed his posts and his technical experience.

Godspeed Craig.

Re: Are prices trending downwards for late 1930's Packards ?

I concur on a lot of the opinions here. I belong to a club that has a shop and mentors to the local high schools on working on classic cars. We are trying desperately to keep young blood interested in our hobby.

I'm 45, and as a kid I remember a lot of Model A Ford clubs, and meets, and shows. I can't remember the last time I've seen a stock Model A at any show in the last 10-15 years.

That generation is finishing up, and frankly stock Model A's aren't practical on modern roads.

The thunderbird club had a large show in Canada last year, and they actually had more of the modern 2002-2005 Thunderbirds attend than the classic 55-72 Thunderbirds. Most of the owners left their older cars at home, because the modern birds are easier to drive, have AC, and it was just easier to hop in and come to the event.

My boss belongs to a Mustang club, and he shows up with his '72 MachI to club events. Most of the cars that show up are '96-'18 Mustangs. There are a few early mustangs but most don't drive them, because the convenience of the modern Mustang is easier to drive.

I'm seeing a lot of '50s cars fall out of favor as well. Friends my age see them as big lumbering relics. I disagree. I guess that just means more for us at a cheaper price.

1930's Packards can keep up on modern roads. The problem is it was my Great,Great Grandfathers car. You've got to love the design to want to own one, and the prices for restored ones are well out of my budget.
