  1. My wife and I at Pebble Beach with our 1915 Packard Special Roadster. The car was built and driven by Carl G. Fisher, the man who built the Indy 500, The Lincoln Highway, Miami Beach and more! He drove it as the Pace car in the 1915 Indy 500 race as well as the Fall Classics of the same year. He also used the car to survey parts of the Lincoln Highway. It is basically all original except for late 20's repaint by Eddie Rickenbacker when he owned the Speedway.
  2. This car was brush painted when new. The car is a one off custom Packard 336 Sport Touring by Rollston. It is all original. When you look at the surface in the right light you can see the marks left by the camel hair brush. In 1927 the custom shops had not yet switched over to the new fangled spray gun. Old world craftsmen who had developed their skills on horse drawn carriages weren't about to change a winning formula!
  3. Thanks, however the 33 and 34 have different mounting brackets, Allen
  4. Thanks Mark, That is a great suggestion and in fact I have already placed and left a message with him, Thanks!!

  7. Hi West, This is Allen Strong, if you still need help give me a call and I will be happy to share what I know, Allen
  8. Thanks Ed, great tip. Looking forward to seeing you and all the other regulars at Hershey, Allen
  9. We will be attending for the 30th year another Fall AACA meet at Hershey this year. I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion where one might pay to store a car for a month or two if needed in the area. Have two cars and one trailer so looking for a temporary home for one of them. Preferably something easily accessible and close to Hershey....any ideas? Another thought, is there anyone going back to or thru Central Illinois with an empty trailer? Thanks for any suggestions, Allen
  10. Can you imagine the excitement of finding this car back in 1987. In my opinion, one of the most beautiful cars ever built!
  11. Here's one I just finished, a 1936 Packard Rollston Stationary Victoria on a long wheelbase Super Eight chassis. A one off custom built for New Jersey industrialist Arthur McEwan. Mr. McEwan had never put the top down on his Rollston 845 ( 1931) Convertible Victoria, so when he went to the dealer to replace it in December of 1935 he ordered his new one with a fixed convertible top!
