That's a wonderful collection of cars Jonathan. I don't think I've seen a Packard before. So thanks for adding this maker to my list. I'm off to Google Packard images and spend an hour "going back in time" .. Q. Did every kid have a model Delorean ?

Garry, if you really want to know more about Packards..."Ask the man who owns one!" There, I got that in! It was Packard's great advertising slogan for many years. Enjoy your research: It was a great luxury brand that ran down after World War II, but it was also a pioneer in a number of ways, including being the first cars to have air-conditioning...in the 1930s!
