A former known? car in a unknown collection in Tallinn:

If my senses are correct, the ZIS 110 in this collection is the same car bucked out from a shed in 2007!

Steve, thanks for the link. It is indeed the salvaged car. At least it now has headlamps installed.

I still say the Chaika is a copy of the 55-56 Packard.

Sorry but to me too nebulous to be truth-apt. If one tries to define the boundary of "a copy" that includes a 338 cui cast aluminum engine with centrifugal filter or would search for a name of "the 55-56 Packard" equipped with mechanical operated pushbuttons but without TL or just counts the quantity of doors of the convertible then he would probably come under pressure for failing to offer a convincing explanation. How about the straight-toothed differential, not to mention the backbone tube chassis ...
Please don't get me wrong. The overwhelming evidence for a Packard design pattern conglomerate is all over town. But to copy means to duplicate, at least in legal terms. A small part of her Soviet skirt is hanging down below her Packard coat.

Maybe copy is the wrong word.Guscha, if you want the article "East Grand Blvd meets Gorky Park", contact Owen and I will make sure you get it.
