  1. I teach at a small college in upstate New York, and have a photograph of my 1926 236 Phaeton on my laptop computer. By far, there's no interest among the students (which is sad) but one kid did ask what kind of car it was. I said "Packard". He looked at me strangely: "Packar?". "No", I said. "PackarD!. Like Hewlett Packard". Then he understood. It's odd how what was arguably the most recognizable brand name in America equating to luxury and quality for so many years has all but disappeared from common language. --Scott
