  1. "Museum Quality" means nothing. You can put anything in a museum.
  2. Another story about Picasso. He was eating dinner at a restaurant and the waitress asked if he would do a sketch for her on the napkin during dinner. Picasso agreed and at the end of the meal he presented the sketch to the waitress. She was of course thrilled. Picasso told her the cost would be $35,000 for the sketch. The waitress exclaimed but you only took 20 minutes to do that. Picasso replied but it took me a lifetime to learn how. He then gave the napkin to the waitress as a gift.
  3. There are usually several on E-bay.
  4. Harley Earl didn't sketch. He was good at telling people what he wanted and yelling when he didn't get it. Now if that bag had a sketch by Frank Hershey or Gordon Buehrig that would be another story.
  5. It is a 1929 Packard 626. The entry level Packard for 1929. First year for chrome trim and that style of headlamp. These are great cars. I just came in from driving a 1928 526.

  8. Have been doing yard work all this week. Headed to sprint car races tonight. Will probably have several cars out this weekend. 1948 Chevrolet Aerosedan and 1948 Ford Woodie are on the top of the list. Might even get out the 1912 Mitchell for Easter Sunday. Spring has sprung! Happy Motoring to you all!

    John, That sure is a great idea. I would be happy to sell you this fine Ford with its Red Plastic Eagle. Then you could reproduce these Eagles for Ford Collectors. So long as Ford Motor Company gives its approval. I have to many irons in the fire at this time for a project like that.

    John, That Red Plastic Eagle is a Ford Accessory. I have an article about it from the V-8 Times I believe. It was rare in 1951 and I would suspect even more rare today. I do not think the survival rate would have been very high if left out in the elements.
