  1. I'm obviously partial to green. My 1934 Packard is Swiss Green #1 and Swiss Green #4. Original colors. Jay
  2. Terry & Neil - Thanks so much for the compliments. She is a fantastic car. Love the Buicks............styling, power, reliability...........what else can be said?! Larry, the Sage Green on the 1925 Master Sport is beautiful! A fantastic looking car! Jay El Dorado Hills, CA
  3. Here are the original colors of green on my 1932 Buick 80 Victoria Travelers Coupe. Riviera Green Light and Riviera Green Dark. These colors were in the advertisement literature on this model. The one comment I always get at car shows.......................What a great color combination! Jay El Dorado Hills, CA
  4. Very informative for those of us with '32's. Great thread! Jay El Dorado Hills, CA 1932 8-86 Victoria Travelers Coupe
  5. Richard - Glad to hear! I would have gotten back with you sooner but just moved to another area of the State which became a logistical nightmare for moving cars, packing, etc...I just came across the other one, so if you know of someone in need, I've an extra one in the garage. Thx! Jay El Dorado Hills, CA
  6. McMaster Carr caries the mesh. Standard stuff. Jay
  7. Richard - I have one for a 1930 Packard 726. The mesh will have to be replaced. Jay Novato, CA
  8. Highlander - Negative. I look everyday on Ebay, but to no avail. J
  9. What a great thread this is! Thanks Mr. Earl for starting it!! Jay Novato, CA
  10. Carl - I did go back and re-read each post as you suggested. Quite interesting dissecting each post and collecting the information. Good idea of yours! Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on which way you look at it, the style of tire I have, and prefer, on my classics, is bias and tube. For me, the radials just don't fit the part as I like to keep my cars original, down to the last nut and bolt. When I mentioned about bringing the car up to speed, well, that would be no more than 40 MPH for me unless I'm on the freeway going to or coming from a show, which are few and far between these days in the Bay Area. At that point, I may be doing 50 as I have had a pace car follow me and give me the lights and horn when I do reach that speed to make sure that I can sync my speedometers at 50 MPH. My Buick is off by 12 MPH, so I when it reads 40, I know I'm going 28 MPH. For the Packard, pretty much right on, though It may be off by a mile or 2. Maybe, one day, I will try radials, but for the time being, having owned classics since I was in my 20's and am now 54, I'm content with the original style that the car was intended to have when built. I guess it's just a matter of preference any way you look at it! Jay

  12. OK.......................... I went ahead and put 45psi in the front and 40psi in the back and drove the car around town. The car steered a lot easier, more control, but definitely a harder ride. I wanted to bring her up to speed a bit, but my normal driving routes are either washed out, now full of potholes or still closed after a week due to flood waters which have yet to recede. Any thoughts at leaving the PSI at this poundage or lowering it back down to the 40/35 where I had it? Jay Novato, CA
  13. West - Too funny! I got a good laugh out of that one! I'm still laughing. The Forum is always a fun and informative place to go on rainy days like today, tomorrow and into next week according to the stormy outlook for CA. From drought to floods, no happy median out here! Always interesting topics to look forward to reading! Jay Novato, CA (just over the Golden Gate Bridge)
  14. Thanks, West- That's an honor coming from you! The car just jumped in value and provenance! Jay Novato, CA
