  1. Well... not if the last page of the landscaping feature was on the back of the missing Maxwell ad. ☺️
  2. Modeled after the 1952 Packard 'Folded Wing' Cormorant..
  3. The city is Los Angeles and the event is a parade honoring Charles A. Lindbergh. Date was September 1927.
  4. Here's the Nash in a less jarring view: You can imagine your own color preference 😊.
  5. It's a 120. They probably glanced at the straight eight and assumed it was a six.
  6. Never heard of 'Whirlaway' but it apparently was a term used by Oldsmobile back in the day. I don't remember it at all. Photo Credit: gmheritagecenter.com
  7. Here's a really nice doctor's business coupe that I wouldn't mind having in my garage.
  8. I was twelve and remember all the advertising hoopla prior to the introduction. I also remember being a little disappointed when I actually saw the car and it wasn't as cool as I had imagined it would be. The car wasn't helped when Red Skelton made fun of the grill on his popular TV program. New car introductions were a big event in our family back then. The boulevard (Van Nuys, CA) was lined with WW2 spotlights and people thronged to the dealerships to see the latest wonders from the carmakers. I later thought the 1959 Buick Electra 225 (black convertible) was the most wonderful thing I had ever seen on four wheels. I can't imagine thronging to see the latest transportation appliance stamped out by today's carmakers. It was a great time to be a teenager.
  9. <----- 1948 Sherman Oaks, CA. No idea what the year/make/model of car was.
  10. Thanks, guys. I appreciate the quick response.
  11. Going through some family fotos...What is it?
  12. Try to find someone who can reproduce the Packard Font for the model/serial number. The rendering of the number one is often a glaring error on reproduction plates.
  13. Microsoft Word, Open Office Writer will both open the document once downloaded.
