Re: Packard - profits & losses, fun and games with numbers

Fabulous Dave! The work you put into this is greatly appreciated. The red years 1921 and 1934 stand out as big investments in advanced vehicles and facilities, well worth the losses.

As I got closer I gazed upon the car and, seein...

Re: "The Packard Experience" at the Gilmore

Hi Dave - was great seeing you again! Thanks for walking me around the show, giving me the history of some of the cars and and introducing me to so many friendly folks in the club.

Re: 2013 PAC - Thursday at Rochester Park

Images 1-4: New coachwork with racy body. Started out as, I think, a touring sedan. Images 5-7: 1933 1002 Eight Victoria. Must admit, was my favorite though all the cars were great.
