  1. There appears to be a handle about 2 inches behind the drivers side fender support arm on the frame . I’m working on a Packard that was a barn find.
  2. Someone had fun bending the tube on top of the air pump!
  3. What is the level for on the frame behind the drivers side front fender support? Radiator drain handle? I find the non skid tires comical. I bet there is not 6 square inches of actual rubber touching the road between the four tires combined, so not much traction at all. I’ll run a non skid tire over some oil tomorrow in the garage and report back on what I find. Keep up the good work on bringing this nickel era car to the masses. I’m in the process of restoring a 1920 nickel era car right now and have run into most of the challenges that you have so I feel your pain. At
  4. Is it possible to turn the water pump shaft down on a lathe and put a sleeve on it? Just a thought.
  5. Think there is a White in this line up of road locomotives? Who can identity what’s in the row of cars?
  6. I would be interested to see what the torque numbers on this engine would be with the 4 valves per cylinder. The cars cubic inches is a little on the light side for a chassis of that size compared to the other cars in its class. The Winton with that same wheel base and tire size is 525ci, the Packard comes in at 424ci and the Locomobile and Pierce come in around 525ci also With the White having a lot less cubes it would be a neat comparison to it see as well as the other big machines on a dyno. To put in perspective how big this car is for the era you have to park it next to
  7. I don’t think I have seen any talk about the cubic inches of the engine yet? Looking forward to see pictures of the car from underneath to see how large the frame and rear end is. I assume the weight of car is in the 5,500 range?
  8. Try using “Napa Aluminum Brightener cleaner” on any non polished aluminum. Works great, easy to use and cheap.
  9. Packard 120’s are wonderful machines. They drive great, are easy to handle and look like a junior a Packard, which they are. I look at one frequently in the garage and it is no where near the quality of a senior Packard. Everything is smaller and of less quality and mass than it’s bigger brother. I assume that the Lincoln Zephyrs and Buick’s are also fantastic cars.... but just because the 120, Zephyr and Buick are fantastic cars shouldn’t make them a CCCA classic. These cars were built for a cheaper price point when new because the big expensive classic car market was quickly disappearing i
  10. 1932 Packard 900. I assume prototype. What design feature shows up on later custom body jobs?
  11. 7.8 billion people in the world and counting. With inflation and population growth the hobby will be fine. Don’t forget that every year there are about 70 million motor vehicles built and added to the market place. Every year more cars become collectible and the inventory grows. In my area if you wanted to you can attend some sort of cruise night or event every night of the week that are attended by all years and makes of cars. If you read older magazine articles you will see that they have been writing about the falling sky for generations. p.s.- I call dibs on all the custom body Pa
  12. Hispano-suiza j12 I don’t think anyone will ever be allowed to sit on this cars fender again.
  13. Chicago Union boss Mike Carrozzo’s Lincoln. Was president of 25 trade unions at the same time in Illinois
  14. Duesenberg. Picture from the early 1960’s when the taper tail sold for 20k
  15. Mercedes 500k and 540k, both special roadsters
