    Packard Car Museum

    As some of you know I'm stuck here in Dayton with nothing to do. Anyhoo, I went to the Packard Car Museum yesterday and thought that you guys might enjoy some of the pics. Here is the link to my album on photobucket. Enjoy!

    Great post Wacop, I love old cars. They have so much character.

    Whew, I must be getting old. I remember many of those Packards. Actually, too many! Thanks for the trip down memory lane. They were great vehicles.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Didn't anybody tell you, PapaBear, that age is like fine wine? Not that I have had any, mind you. Some things just get better with age.

    Packards were on the par with such cars as Cadillac, Lincoln, Dusenberg, Auburn, Cord, etc. Very fine cars and many were hand made to customers specs. All in all a very well made luxury car in its day.

    I am glad you got to see these fine automobiles, Wacop. I have been to a couple of car museums myself. Notably the Harrah's Collection in Reno / Sparks, Nevada before it was dismembered and the Towe Ford Museum in Sacramento, CA. They even let me sit in one of my favorite cars, a 1964 1/2 Mustang convertible. It was a Indianapolis pace car edition, I believe. Not many made and even fewer in existence today.

    I'm just a certified Car nut.

    Laughing at Gozlings rendition of Packed vs Packard. OY! (Shakes head)
