At least the grille is cool, kind of like the "Predictor."

Is that a valid statement and if so, what category. Wasn't it made off a GM chassis and priced waaaay up there. I think there was one at a PI show one year--or maybe it was not the actual show, just in the parking lot.

Ahhhhh---that's one of those Fugly creations from Bayliff, a funeral director from Ohio with a little too much time and money on his hands. He used to bring these creations to Auburn every year to ballyhoo. MOR-GM with a Packard grille stuck on it.

Wow. An '83 Buick Riviera with crap hung on it, kind of like "Lipstick on a pig"(this is not a political reference). Its a shame the Packard name was evenly affiliated with it.

In 1978 Budd Bayliff introduced a line of Packard Bayliff sedans and coupes based on the then-current GM cars. He says a couple of hundred were built and as far as I know they were titled based on the underlying GM chassis. Bayliff then (1992) sold out his enterprise to Gullickson but retained the right to continue manufacturing his 1934 look-alike cars which at least are close-enough copies that some of the fiberglass panels interchange with the real thing.

For those with further interest, the latest issue of The Packard Cormorant (Summer 2008, #131) has an article on all the modern attempts to reintroduce a Packard-named vehicle.

Beauty is in the beholder's eye, but I'll add my vote to those that say the 80's GM-based Bayliff Packards's are butt-ugly.

It looks like something like an East LA Pimp ride or a 85 Rive built by Johnny Cash when he worked in Detroit on the assembly line in his song
