New Poster Intro - r1lark

Hi, wanted to introduce myself, just signed up at www.packardinfo.com......

My name is Paul, and live in North Carolina. Long time Packard fan, since my family had a Packard dealership in Hempstead Long Island NY from '48 - '56, and a Studebaker-Packard dealership in Merrick Long Island NY from '56 - '65. When Studebaker consolidated production in Canada in '64, the dealership began transitioning to a Datsun/Nissan dealership.

I've been using the www.packardinfo.com resources quite a bit over the last couple of months while transferring the family dealership sales records into a digital format. While I'm very familiar with Studebaker model info, and Packard model info in '54 - '56, I needed help on models and serial numbers for the earlier Packards. All the needed info and more was found here at www.packardinfo.com

I hope to make use of the knowledge on this forum in answering some questions that came up when transferring the Packard sales records.

While I have a number of Studebakers (thus my user name "r1lark" which of course is a Studebaker reference), unfortunately no Packards are in the garage. My goal is to eventually obtain a nice '54 or '55 or '56 Packard as these are my favorite models.

Thanks to bigKev for making this site available!

My father was the dealer in Santa Fe, New Mexico from 1929 to 1954. First as a service station, then shortly thereafter a full dealership.

Santa Fe, that's a beautiful area of the country. My younger son lives in Scottsdale AZ and we go out each spring and fall, visit him, then travel around the southwest for a week.
