Does the book contain a chapter about the Soviet cousin ZIL?

...I'm wondering regarding the thinking that a Packard as a daily driver from prior to World War II is not a good idea...

Ernie (Ernie Vitucci), always good to hear from you. To pay close attention to expectations of my wife and to attend to her wishes follows a deeper meaning beyond logic. In addition to it I take pleasure in her car favorites.
In terms of the car in question, please don't forget that a '41 180 measures almost 20 feet in length. European roads and parking spaces are unable to cope with such giants and their turning radius.
Well, when I come to consider it, then I never met someone in your neck of the woods who was using his One-Eighty as a daily driver.

Steve (58L8134), thanks for the link. A car like this huge '41 180 Custom Super formal sedan could be a wonderful start for my next project. But my wife would only support a daily driver. That eliminates prewar cars.

Seasons greetings to all Packard-loving peoples around the globe. Its true, that Soviet Union did not invent the wheel. But "Дед Мороз (father frost)", the Russian counterdraft of Santa arose from way down east. So why not place him into a Zil, the official Kremlin outfitter for decades?

Gerd,

I think that car production as a whole was halted around January/February 1942.




Mal, yes, that clinched the matter. Thanks.

Was this the end of prewar car A/C?
