  1. I am looking at buying a 2012 GMC Sierra 2500HD with a 6.0 V-8 engine, 6 speed auto transmission, and 4.10 rear end. I plan to pull an enclosed trailer with a 37 Packard in it. Has anyone had any experience with this combo and how did it pull. Someone told me it might be underpowered. I am new to this game so I am looking for someone who might have some experience. Thanks.
  2. Sinclair Oil Coasters

    I have this set of 4 Sinclair Coasters. Does anyone know if these were something Sinclair sold or gave away as promotional items or possibly were used in their offices?
  3. Packard License Plate Frame Wanted

    The plate is for modern license plate. I have visited both of their websites but did not see the frame I am looking for. Thanks for the suggestion to contact them in case the they know someone who might have one.

  5. 2018 Packard National Meet

    Thanks. I heard they had a hotel for the meet. Would be surprised if they didn't since planning and arrangements for National Meets are worked on far in advance of the meet? I am also looking for the name of the host hotel. Hopefully someone has that bit of information.

  7. 1937 Packard 120 Gas Cap

    I finally found a stainless steel gas cap that looks correct. Obtained a mirror finish with a little work and some metal polish. Not a Packard script cap but works. Thanks.
  8. The restoration of my1937 Packard 120 Convertible Coupe is 99.9% complete and ready to take for a drive. The problem is being able to see behind me. No place to attach outside rear view mirrors and have them look right. Searching for an original pair but have not had any located to date. I have had a couple of persons send me sketched and drawings along with pictures but not clear enough drawings to fabricate parts. Close but not enough detail. In addition, 2 different persons provided dimensions and drawings but the dimensions are different so it is impossible to know which one is original versus an aftermarket. I thought about rolling the window down a bit and clamping a mirror to the glass but doesn't seem practical and only a matter of time before the window is cracked due to clamping pressure. No sidemounts so sidemount attached mirrors are not an option. Has anyone had this problem and how did you solve it? Or does any one have a set of mirrors they might have for sale. Thanks. pint4@new.rr.com

  12. Is there anyone making authentic reproductions of the 37 Packard 120 Brass VIN plates? If so, would appreciate a contact name. Thanks!
  13. Looking for a nice 1937 Packard 120 Engine splash pan-passenger side. Will be at Packard National Meet in South Bend if any one has one or if vendor might be bringing one. Thanks.
  14. Diamondback Aurburn Tires

    Does anyone know if Diamondback Tires is any closer to commercializing their line of new Auburn radial tires with the scalloped edges? I need 7.00 x 16 for my car but heard that they only have 6.50 x 16's. I think they have been working on this style for multiple years, further back than I can remember. Their catalog on the web says 2015-16 so not sure if there is an updated version. Thanks.
  15. 37 Packard 120 Trim Rings/Hub Caps

    I agree-used ones are hard to come by and usually have issues that are expensive to fix. The nice originals probably have not been available for over 20 years. Would you say Hirsch has the best repro hubcaps? Maybe he is the only one having them made.
