Hi Kevin...You are going to be pretty tired when you get home...I live in Scottsdale...If you need a cup of coffee as you go through our area...we should arrange to meet for 30 minutes or so to give you a break...more than two hours sitting at one time...not good for the body...I'll even run down to Tucson Packard!

Good afternoon Kevin...I wonder what Uber would charge you. Might not be much more than the crate, Insurance and shipping...Just an idea...I have an ex son in law in Phoenix that drives for them...How many miles to your house from Tucson Packard? Ernie in Arizona

Good afternoon Kevin...You might want to put some Marvel Mystery Oil in the cylinders and let it soak for a day or two and then turn it over without the key on to lube the cylinder walls..then a compression check to make sure you don't have and sticking valves...then fresh gas and fire her up...sometimes fresh gas from a little portable tank is a good idea if you don't know the condition of the tank. Disconnect the fuel pump until you know the condition of the tank. The carb and fuel pump might be fine until old gas and rust are sucked into them. Ernie in Arizona

Good Morning...When working on light lenses...I usually put an old canvas paint cloth on the ground...it really helps when 73 year old hands drop things that they were not told to drop! Ernie in Arizona

Good afternoon all...It often seems that our biggest competitor to the main Packard Suppliers is...ACE Hardware...or some other hardware store 'Just down the road'. Especially when our cars were the second 'Work' car. I know in San Diego where I grew up...Momma had the 'Best' car at home and 'Dad' had something older to go to work. Repairs were done from a jar of old bolts, or sometimes taken off the lawnmower or a bicycle! Prudence was pretty clean when she came to us...but she had a few bolts and nuts that would have made daf shudder! Ernie in Arizona

Good Morning...It seems to me that hole is for your engine heat sensor...but then, again, I have been wrong at least as often as I have been right! Ernie in Arizona

Good afternoon Chris...You are absolutely right in my book! I don't mind paying a bit more for a quality product made in North America! Ernie in Arizona

Good afternoon...I drove Miss Princess over to NAPA to pick up some brake pins for another old girl we are working on and she ran the 16 miles just as nice as you please. We saw one lady on a horse, riding English Saddle which sort of stands out in the south west! All Miss Princess asks is to be driven and she is happy...Ernie in Arizona
