    I don't know if this qualifies as a "tub", but Darrin/Packards are beautiful cars, by any name.

    So John Lee, I had thought that Ford quit making Phaetons in 37. School me here, did they actually make 700 or so phaetons in 38 along with a run of sedan convertibles?

  26. A suggestion, look at Doan Spencers 32 with the Duval it has the corners tucked in, the outside posts are more parallel to the body sides and not sticking out like wings. I think the early Duval's were different than the recently made ones. You might want the earlier tucked in look?
    I love your Buick tub it's happening!!!
