  2. Eric, Nice job on your wheels they are coming along nicely. I went the same route for the wheels on my 31 Packard 31 wooden spokes. They are holding up quit well and still look as I did them yesterday.I

  9. Been there done this with Firestones. Three setts to finally get a batch that did not yellow. Well not yellow as bad as the first two setts. Next time it will be black-walls for me.
  10. Your digs is similar to http://autobahncc.com Nice place you have there. That is a dream garage for any car lover.
  11. I like that the boy is taking good care of his grey hound wagon by oiling up them wheels. For the make of the car I have no idea.
  12. The Lemont Lions (which I am a member of) participated in the Lemont Kepataw Parade today. Here are a few pictures of my Pacakard along with another members Farmall. Was a nice day for it but the Packard did not like the stop and go of the parade she prefers to be out on the open road.
  13. Hi, I will be going to the show on Sunday but as a spectator, Depending on weather I may take the drive out there in my '31 Packard. 2016 Geneva Illinois Concours d'Elegance Anyone else from the Chicago area attending? Tom
  14. I went to this show also but as a spectator. Have to agree that amount of show cars seemed to be down. But still and enjoyable show to go to. I however did notice the Packards
  15. What 3D and rendering software did you use? That is some mighty fine work there.....
  16. Sweet new ride Like we always say. I wish I had never sold my '70 with the 455
  17. As Matt I use simple green but instead of an SOS pad I use a Mr Clean Magic eraser. Chris, Same issue with the tires I purchased from a different vendor. Took three times to get them right. But as you stated they still yellow but not as bad as the other sets.
  18. For my 1931 Packard I order mine from this company http://www.quietride.com/ Very happy with it. Did not require any mods to install it. It fit very well. It has some extra holes in not and sure what they are for but they are hidden high up on the pad. They do have some REO http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?userwatch~categorystring~cadefjdx~1142
  19. Yes I sure have I have ridden in one and it was in the car I own today the '31 Packard rumble seat. My great uncle owned the car before my father purchased it from him in in 1987. My great Uncle would take the '31 out on Sunday drives and a few us would jump in the rumble seat and he would drive around the Marquette Park area in Chicago. I can still picture it in my mind o the joy and fun we had and the thumbs up from other drivers.

  21. Here are some pictures of Old Bessie 1931 Packard April 2015 She is all painted now; interior completed but as you know there is always something to do to these old gals . Have a great day
  22. Hi All, Been sometime since I have posted. I have finally dropped my 31 883 468 Coupe off at the upholsterer to have the interior finally done. The trim man had asked me if I knew how the Passenger Seat-back was fasten. Does anyone here know if it was fasten to the rear wood structure and if so how was it done or does it just set in place so it can be removable? Thanks
  23. Good Morning VintageLiterature, Any material for 1931 833 Packard? Or anything for a 1957 Chevy Belair (4-door)
