PACKARD MEET REMINDER ! AND A WARNING !

The Sat. Jan 30 show in the morning hours typically has the most Packards of every condition and description, than you are likely to see anywhere else in the WORLD !

The Sun. 31st Swap Meet in the morning hours has row after row of stuff for just about anything, including several big lit. collectors selling and buying.

Here's the warning !

For some goofy reason, the DoubleTree Hotel has its address listed as on THE CITY DRIVE. "You cant get there from here".

Getting off the freeway, you want to go WEST on THE CITY DRIVE but ONLY to the first block/stop-light. That's CHAPMAN.

Turn RIGHT on CHAPMAN and go down about 3/4 of a block. The Hotel is on your LEFT. There is a big parking lot for a large shopping center (look for the yellow BEST BUY sign) on the right. You can park there - parking in the hotel is pricey and often filled (especially since their rear parking lot will be full of some pretty slick Packards !)

Please be careful in So. Calif. traffic ! They are NUTS !

G'day shinyDUCK,
to PackardInfo. From your comments you're right into Packards so could you please include your Packard/s in the Packard Owner's Registry, together with a pic, any known history and how you acquired it/them?

Thanks Petey for the helping with directions. It is true the hotel entrance is more on the side the street listed for it's address.

RE : getting to the big PACKARD'S INTERNATIONAL "Packard Show" next (not this coming) SATURDAY Jan. 30th. morning.

yeah - hard to understand what the hotel was thinking of!

If, after getting off the freeway, and heading west on THE CITY DRIVE, for about the equiv. of a block or so, you fail to turn right at the first light (CHAPMAN) you will find you are driving alongside the hotel property, with no way to get into the public areas. One "service entrance" for hotel employees and deliveries, with a dinky little sign that says 'HOTEL ENTRANCE ON CHAPMAN' ! And no place to turn around without going many many blocks out of your way !

P.S. dont forget - the following morning (Sun 31st) is the big "Packard Parts Swap Meet", probably the largest anywhere.

One of the highlights for me is really the swapmeet. I have haggled many a good deal there. Plus it's nice to know just about everything there is Packard only!

It is for sure the largest all-Packard swapmeet this side of the Mississippi!

Hope to see you there with me driving my '55 Clipper from Phoenix. I'll be spending the night at my sister's and saving that $75 a night, maybe more money for parts at the swap meet??

Every little bit helps! Best to be at the swap meet early. Some of the guys start looking through boxes as fast as the vendors can get them off the trucks!

See you there!
