    Minerva automobiles

    Is there a car club specifically for Minerva automobiles? They were made in Antwerp, Belgium and were know as the Belgian Rolls-Royce.
  3. Well I took my 55 Packard for a drive today and all of a sudden the car start running rough then backfiring and then it just plaint quit i pulled over to the side of the road and could smell gas when I popped the hood and although I dont have my spark plug removal tool with me I am sure when I pull the plugs maybe tomorrow they will be fouled. My question is have any of the members out there dealt with this shop they are in Blackwood NJ (they used to be in Collingwood NJ)?

    Painting a Car

    Well I thank you guys for all your advice but I think I have someone I can trust the car with. State auto body has been in business since 1964 and I stopped by their shop a couple of days ago with my car and asked for an estimate. I saw some of their finished work and it looks like they know what there doing they don't specialize in car restoration but they did I 1965 Ford Mustang a few years ago and it looks great. They quoted me a price of $6000 and promised me that I would be happy with the results. The two men who work there one is an old time bodyman who has over 50 years of experience and his son well i went to grade school with him! Here is a photo of the car as you can see the primer is bleeding through the front fender in this picture; its is also bleeding though on other parts of the car.

    Painting a Car

    I was just going to ask for some advice I have a 1955 Packard 400 Hardtop. It is a rust free car from the state of Arizona I bought over 15 years ago . The car has been garage kept since i bought it. Since my employer is settling our work contract and we are expecting retro pay I think now is the time to paint the car .Can anyone on the forum recommend a good body man who doesn't charge an arm and a leg? I am not looking to win 1st place at Hershey but I do want the car to look good. In the Philadelphia Pa area. I should say i want to spend under 10K.
  6. I was wondering if any members out there could tell me if there are any salvage yards roughly in a 100 mile radius of Philadelphia that have 1955-56 Packards in their yard.I remember passing a yard in Lacaster county that had Packards in it it was in a wooded area but since at the time I drove through it I was lost I cannot remember much else except it was on a hilly winding 2 lane road.
  7. Can anyone tell me the parking area closest to the green field so i can program my gps?

    I was just wondering when was the last time a Doble steam car was for sale and how much did it sell for. I was looking at Jay Lenos car on youtube and a friend asked me how much would somthing like that sell for-I have no idea the only time I saw a Doble for sale was at Hershey about 35 years ago-I remember they were asking 18K for it. of course toady it would go for much much more.

    Time Passages auto restoration

    I was just wondering if anyone knows how to get in contact with time passages auto restoration. I saw the 1929 Minerva town car that they did at Hershey and was really impressed. I have a 1955 Packard 400 hardtop, while mechanically the car is pretty much done it does need a new paint job and detailing ( it is a rust free arizona car) does anyone have contact numbers and or adress for them? I think they said they were in Holidaysburg Pa
