Packard Don, I think there were some internal political reasons why the website was left untouched. Now, some new folks are being installed in that area of the PAC organization, and their intent is to remedy the 1997-ish look of the website. How soon it can happen though is anyone's guess.

Re: My "New to me" 51 Packard Patrician 400

According to the factory sales brochure, in 1951 it was called the Packard Patrician '400'.

I believe that nomenclature was also used for 1952, but it became just the Patrician for 1953 through 1956.

Another interesting one from Facebook Marketplace.
1955 Patrician with factory air. Looks like the AC knob on the dash is missing, and the car has been reupholstered with inauthentic fabric.

Nowadays that insurance company is headquartered in Seattle; could this dealership photo be from Seattle or somewhere else in the Pacific Northwest?

I just finished the book and enjoyed it a lot.

No ZIL content -- that will have to wait for someone else's book. But if you like personal stories well-told, many of which you can identify with yourself, then you'll enjoy this chronology of cars and Southern towns and family characters. And yes -- there is "the one that got away." Haven't we ALL been there?!?

Palazuelo has no firm plans for the property at the moment. The last article I saw on this topic (which was also on Crain's Detroit Business) said that he had basically given up on trying to rehab anything except for the Building 13 Administration structure fronting on E. Grand Boulevard. The rest of the property has been advertised as being "available for redevelopment." So it will probably all be razed fairly soon.

Re: 1955 Caribbean top material

I just picked up a 1955 Caribbean that needs a new top, so I’ll be following this thread with interest. From what I can tell, no one makes the 1955 original [Orlon] top material, and I believe that even in 1956, replacement 1955 tops were make of the 1956 diamond pinpoint vinyl [Hypalon] material. No one is offering 1956 tops with the color pads and headliner, so the two Caribbean owners in our PAC region have simply bought the raw materials and had the top and liners made from scratch. Prohibitively expensive, but they look stunning!
