Hemmings Classic Car

The current issue (dated February 2010) of Hemmings Classic Car is subtitled "special all-Packard collector's Issue". Despite a few "nits" and small errors, it's well-done and a really worthwhile issue; if you don't have a subscription you should be able to find a copy at better newstands.

I checked at the local Barnes & Noble book store yesterday, and they don't have the February issue yet. Still displaying the January issue. Subscribers must get their copies first, then the sellers get theirs. Looking forward to getting a copy. (o{}o)

Interesting issue. But a few points...
• The Packard "Patrician" shown on page 63 appears to be a 1956 Executive, but certainly not a Patrician. And 2-door hardtops were never "Patricians" anyway in 1956. Patricians were all 4-door sedans that year.

• The nice, shiny body tag with the chrome screws on page 31 states the car was delivered by "Earl C. Anthony" (sic) ... that's Earl WITHOUT an "e" on the end. But Mr. Anthony spelled his name "Earle" so it is a mystery how this body tag passed inspection at a dealership known for meticulous preparation work, owned by a member of the Packard Board of Directors and most well-known dealership in the West. AND on a car delivered to a famous star. Hard to imagine this dealership sending out a car with a body plate so obviously with Mr. Anthony's name and the name of the dealership spelled incorrectly!

• The article author also incorrectly spells Mr. Anthony's name (and the name of the dealership) as "Earl" instead of Earle as it should be.

These points aside... interesting issue.
