Today I attended our regularly scheduled March meeting (Central Virginia Chapter) in Chesterfield County, VA. We met at a non-member's home which is a veritable museum unlike anything I've ever experienced, but that's another story.

While exploring a garage behind his home, lo and behold, there hunkered down was a white over green 1958 Packard Station Wagon. With musclepower supplied by our own Leonard Shephard, we found serial number 58L-7742, body tag 58L-P8, 110. When quizzed, the owner told me where he had purchased the wagon and, suddenly, 47 years of fog faded from my brain. This was the same wagon I now remembered that resided in Waynesboro, VA with a deceased friend, Jeff Diffee, who played a big part in my introduction to antique cars. Don't know why I had forgotten it...but, its great to know it still exists. This vehicle was last licensed in VA in 1968. It is complete and needs a complete restoration, but has always been kept under cover.

Not many people can say that they have an actual Richard Petty race car in their house (much less three). ;) In addition, loads of pocket watches, musical instruments as well as indian artifacts.

Ok, I gotta know who owns that beautiful '63 GT Hawk with Avanti power?
Does anyone in that Chapter know anything about it?

In 1970-71 I owned a R1 Power Shift, late '63 with the recessed parking lights and the full Walnut dash panels, it had Power Disc Brakes and rear deck mounted Antenna and was re-painted that same 1964 Laguna Blue (silver/Blue) over the Blue Mist, the darker non-silver '63 color.

Of course it was in Calif. but these cars do get around, and I would like to locate it again if it "lives"! It was a very sharp car, it had Good Year "Blue Streak" Tires back then. [^]

This car does appear to have a fender mount antenna, and most likely is not it.:(

From what Jim has told me, the car was used by a Studebaker executive and was sold after South Bend closed down. I also think that during this time that work was done on the car that results in it no being completely a 1963. I think that Jim has had this car for around 20 years.

I was wondering where Richard Petty got the cardboard cutout of Guido?

He seemed a bit "flat" to me yesterday for some reason. The last year that he raced I was walking back to my car at Martinsville and he pulled up alongside on the road that led from the tunnel and proceeded to run into the back of the car in front of him! [:0] I seemed to have made an impression on him then. ;)

First- My required Stude content, or in this case~ PACKARD!!! There are a few Packards on my Registry List~ as they fall into the '56-'58 Sedan/Wagon group. If only I could get more of them... ;)

Now for the (sorta) OT part of my post~
I met Richard Petty back in 2002 when I went down to Daytona for the introduction of the US NAVY Craftsman truck driven by a Grandson of one of the Woods Brothers. I made sure to bring along an extra white hat and Sharpie for just that moment. Once he saw us Sailors making our way through the crowd around him, he parted the folks and brought us to the front of the group. What a great guy! He thanked us for our Service and signed whatever we put in front of him.

Now, having seen how tall Richard is in person, I just have to ask~
Guido are you really that tall?

I am the lucky one who is keeping the registry. I found out about this one a little over a year ago. I currently have 16 wagons on the registry. This one mirrors the Sam Miller one I bought a few years ago, except that Sam's was in better condition. If you know of any others, I would greatly appreciate the feedback. Take care.

Oh keeper of the registry..... Perhaps you missed the other thread about Packard wagons. I had a question that you may be able to help us with. I know of a '58 Packard wagon that was supercharged. I'd like to know how many left the factory with superchargers. I know that dealers could install superchargers, but I believe that some '58 Packards, besides all Packard Hawks, came from the factory with superchargers. Thanks in advance!

There were no 58 Packard Station Wagons that came factory ordered with a supercharger on them. While many (especially a few in the last 20 made) came with some odd features on them, none of them had superchargers. Also a note to make, they made 159. #159 was not the last one made or completed or the last one that left the factory. Many were set aside and waiting for parts or touch up prior to leaving. The way this was found was by the dates on the build sheets. Take care.

Sonny - Check the engine number on that 1958 Packard waqon. It is probably an "L" meaning that it originally (from the factory) did not have a supercharger. If it is an LS or PS, it was transplanted from a Packard (1957 or Packard Hawk) or a Golden Hawk.

Thanks for the reply Gary, but that ol' wagon is loooong gone. [V] It was a wagon from my childhood. I remembered about it during a discussion with my brother. I'm sure a few, brutal NY winters ignobly tattered that beautiful body and sentenced it to an early, cancerous death...[xx(]
