2-36 by Merrimac

Post by Dave Czirr » Mon Dec 08, 2014 9:07 am

I was just looking back over some photos taken by others at the CCCA Grand Classic last April in Cape May NJ and ran across this photo of an almost all-original 2-36 with Merrimac coachwork and thought it was too nice a photo to leave unposted. A few years back the car did the Seattle to Pebble Beach tour without a hiccup. Sorry, I don't know who the photographer was but he certainly "had an eye" for composition.

[EDIT] Photo by Stuart Blond.

Just reinforces my opinion that the early Straight Eight Packards are some of the most handsome cases ever made. They're stunning, even in gray

To me that is the epitome of a true vintage car. I wish it were mine!

Look up the word classic and that picture should be next to it! Double wow!
