    I would take any car on that pile before I would think about anything VW made.

    I am glad that style of hair was out of style before I started dating,they take too long now getting ready to go out and would hate to think how long it took to do something with the hair looking like that.

    Thanks, 31 Dodger! I couldn't nail that down, even close. Wiki covered more about how the copmany got in trouble for monpolistic business practice in the later '20s and got bought out.

    McFarlan inline T-head six w. four mains & full, pressure lube

    1951 Oldsmobile 98 DeLuxe Holiday Sedan. I don't recall seeing this
    rear-side trim on anything other than the 98 line, and only in '51. Can
    a HAMB Olds fan say if it did appear otherwise?:confused:

    1956 Studebaker-Packard Cars of Distinction 2-Page Ad

    [​IMG]

    Before the fall. What an interesting transitional year!:rolleyes: The last true Packards
    AND the unique Packard-powered Golden Hawk -- some say the fastest U.S.
    production car for '56.

    Alden Jewell was (rightly, I think) intrigued by the fact that Packard had of-
    ficially spun off the Clipper as a separate "make" (a la Imperial at Mopar).
    Yet the ad here clearly says Packard Clipper. I always thought they were
    sort of ambivalent and, maybe, a bit afraid that the cars wouldn't sell well
    without some help from the Packard name. (Ultimately, it didn't make too
    much difference, did it?)

    Today, many car folk wouldn't know of the great, air-cooled Franklins. These
    super period magazine ads from car guy Alden Jewell's personal collection
    convey a sense of what fine, reliable cars they really were! (Incidentally, he's
    very interested in accuracy, so he said if any Franklin afficionado sees an ID
    that's off a tad, PLEASE, pipe up. Thanks!)
