Hello Wes!

Beautiful cars there, are any of them single?

Good Luck !

Vince - the cars are single, the people here seemed to be married or ??

Nice, Wes... does your dad own a Packard? Both of these are from 1937, the black car is a Super 8 Convertible, the red one is a rare 120C Darrin.

A day at the National Packard Meet can't be bad! How many cars in attendance?

The car at the top is a green 1940 160 convertible sedan - my Dad's first collector he got in 1955 - a 1940 all weather Cabriolet. He has more than a few, ehem. The other one is a 1939 Darrin bodied 120C. There are about 100 cars - judging is today. More photo opps!

It's so cool that your dad has had it such a long time! Is it a factory-bodied car? I wouldn't have pegged 1940, the headlight/grille detail looks earlier, surprised to get the years wrong... thanks for the correx, Wes. The small details that distinguish a '39 Darrin are lost to me.
