  1. Some prewar Packard pics. Two 900’s and a Twin Six
  2. What would the original price of the diamond studded Pierce have been? Are we talking jewelry grade diamonds or industrial use grade? That car must have been a show stopper in the depression. Do any show pictures survive? Hard to believe a car like that is long lost. Thanks for the info.
  3. Are the diamonds real on the dash and gear shift handle?
  4. The World Fair car is currently located in a Chicago collection. It is pretty impressive to see it in person. Did it originally have Blackwall tires on it? Was the twenty grand displayed at the same show also? If so it would be a hard choice between the Caddy, Packard, Pierce and Duesy... I guess I would have to have the chauffeur choose the car at that point!
  5. The year is 1933 and you are visiting the World Fair in Chicago. Which car would you be looking to put the down payment on??.
  6. Pierce arrow. Interesting use of a sweep panel on a town car.
  7. Cadillac V16. Interesting how the rear wind wings follow the top curve.
  8. Duesenberg. I like the long hoods and low windshields on these cars.
  9. 1955 Chrysler Falcon. Check out the license plate.
  10. Third series Packard Twin Six roadster with those aftermarket type wheels. This roadster model first made an appearance in the 1920 model year and was the first production body Packard with the 2 seat rumble seat. 424 cubic inch 12 cylinder engine, 3 speed transmission, 136 inch wheel base impractical rocket ship for the era.
  11. From wood to reality. Yes the wood model was built into a full size prototype 1932 Packard 900 sedan. The production car has dood doors instead of the louvers.
  12. People collect for what ever reason and that is what makes the hobby interesting. Sometimes people just like variety and what peaks their interest. The hobby is big enough and spans the years 1896-2021 so there is a lot of variety to choose from now and that should be respected. I know it’s off subject but a good movie regarding collecting is “The Art of the Steal” the Barnes collection. Google it, interesting watch. Barnes collected what was considered crap at the time..... There is a Packard connection by the way. I am most interested in British sports cars and pre war
  13. Prototype 1932 Packard 900 wood model being carved. Front suicide doors and louvered hood sides instead of doors.
  14. Please email me pictures. Tph479@yahoo.com
  15. 1934 Packard. Rare in that it has the steel disc wheels
