Wow ZZ, you're the first guy I've seen that came back from a Packard mine, ----- just bristling with gold.
Good for you.

That is an interesting backstory ZZ. Thanks for posting it. These stories help make this board what it is.

Those aux tail lights are neat, never saw those before. Those rusty fenders still have some good metal for patching curved areas.

When getting caught up here I thought the same thing Bamamay did- those are very cool looking.

And by the way ZZ- a chromed BB in ANYTHING gets a pass every time!

Just like Elvis, Packard #1 has left the building! Packard #2 has now made it into a dry shop for the first time in years. First order of business will be to cut out the floors, along with the wood subrails, so it can get familiar with its new chassis.

Once again, it pays to be a packrat I've had the humpback that I sliced off the 36 Packard kicking around for years and today I realized it will make a good repair panel for the 37 Coupe. The coupes rear is really beat up, mostly from being pushed around with a tractor to its many resting places for the last 50 years. The Sedan piece is not identical, the trunk lip is a bit narrower and it is not pristine, but easier than making another new panel - and it's even the same color!

At first I was confused by the picture, then it came into focus.

More exciting fabbing to watch at ZZ's Creative Builds.
