Mike,

I too am surprised at this turn in the road, have also been following along on your journey, but pleased the next owners will have your continued support.

Regarding "your" '53 Clipper Deluxe Club Sedan could you update the Registry entry to reflect the change in ownership?

You also said "There is another Packard in my family that I will be soon taking over. It is pretty much the only car that I considered giving up the clipper for. It is a 1953 Caribbean that my uncle has had since 1973. (before I was born!) It's in the registry, and I will start a blog for that car." However I can't see this Caribbean in the Registry, can you point me in the right direction to it please? Or has my eyesight failed to such an extent that I now need a stick and a dog?

Mike,

I've now read your new blog for the Caribbean and see this:

Quote:
....It is still in the US, and looks like it will take a few months to get over to me in Germany. I've known this car since I was young, and am honored that I have the chance to be it's caretaker now. It is a 1953 Caribbean in Matador Maroon.....


Think I still need you to point me in the right direction.

Hi Mal,

Here is a link to the current registry of the caribbean.
2678

How do I update the Clipper's registry entry? I can update my personal info, but can't figure out how to update the clipper registr (which should be associated with my user id)
It's past my bed time....

Mike,

Thought the '53 Caribbean you provided the link for was the one. Just wanted to make sure before I updated the entry.

Updating the Registry entry isn't associated with your personal info, instead it's through the entry itself. Scroll down to the bottom left of the Registry entry itself(see screenshot) click onto the "Make Changes" field and go from there. After your changes make sure you click on the "Save Changes" button!

OK, I updated the registry.
I can't stop making things better on the clipper. A while back I bought some headlight trim rings from longjohn. They were missing the little clip -like almost all do, but I was able to secure the clip from my old ring by drilling (very carefully) 2 holes and attaching the clip with small screws. I'll do the driver side soon. I think Alex -the new owner- will want to freshen up the chrome in general on the car....We will see if that means re-chroming or just getting better used chrome parts.
