    My father had one of those and probably the first car I remember that we owned. Early 50's and I was about 3 or 4 years old.

    I've always liked this era of Packard. Sorta homely in a way - I guess I like 'em because they aren't all that common. I seem to recall reading somewhere that the tail lights seen here are the same as those on some of the '47-'49 Studebakers.

    Just when I think I've seen every old car, pretty sure I never saw a Commer truck like that, very interesting. Would make a neat pickup.

    Is this Carl Chase's yard? He's a character for sure. Not exactly cheap either, but I have bought some stuff from him and been very happy with what I got. Insane sized yard too. If it is, heres a couple pics I took in the same place. I have more but some are O/T.

    A buddy of mine bought this out of there. Weighed a ton and had to be carried over a tall railroad berm. Really cool looking though.

    I don't remember if I ever shared this, but this homemade plow vehicle was in a local yard and I took this picture several years ago. I especially liked the body that was apparently made up of rear roof skins from 40's cars in order to utilize the window glass in frames. Also had a big bin full of scrap iron on the back for traction/ballast weight and one sealed beam converted Model A headlight on top of the plow lift rig. Was some sort of very large truck shortened up, a lot of work went into building this "thing".

    It's a Frankenstein bike, put together as a pan/shovel according to the owner. Nice looking, engine # only, no frame #. They want top dollar, 8K. I passed.

    Yes, but correct lenses would make all the difference
