1932 Ford Model A Convertible Sedan hspace=
Here is a very unusual '31 Ford Model A convertible. It is owned by the same friend who owns the '48 Packard woodie wagon and a couple of other Packards featured last year. He told me this particular Ford model had a total production of 5500 cars (if I remember right) and that 80 percent of them went straight to the docks to be shipped to Europe. Behind it you can see part of his 1923 Packard Sport and a very little of the Packard Woodie. His '36 Packard V12 is a full classic and was displayed with its peers.
1923 Packard Sport hspace=
Here is a pretty good quarter view of the '23 Packard Sport. Behind it you can see the front of the '48 Woodie with the owner (actually my friend's brother) tediously dusting to make ready for the show. During setup Saturday, a sudden gust of wind lifted a tent staked down nearby and almost blew it over onto the woodie. I went to move the car only to be confronted by the above mentioned polisher, thinking I must surely be trying to steal the car or something. I didn't realize at the time there was a brother. We managed to settle that amicably and got the tent better staked down so the problem would not recur.
1923 Packard Sport hspace=
This last photo is again the Packard Sport but from the front. Behind it you can see a pretty nice '51 Chevy Fastback Coupe, owned by another good friend who also owns a '57 Jaguar XK140 Coupe I have been working on for almost a year. Sadly, we were unable to get it ready in time for this show. This is all I had time to get in the Antiques class this year as the whole morning was taken up with other duties. Maybe next year we'll have more time for pictures.
