    Brace yourself Bob,

    I just saw the episode in Chasing Classic Cars where Wayne sees a Packard Panther
    in the "Toybox" !
    I don't know why but that car really bowled me over!
    Amazing collection in a beautiful setting.
    Pardon the bump.

    Regards,
    Peet

      Note the carb is in a box. Kaiser 'boxed' the carb on their Supercharged cars too, as did Studebaker on the '57 up GH series, and also on the R3. Strange Ford chose to use a carb 'air cap' in '57, as did Studebaker on the R2. I always
      thought the 'air caps' or 'bonnets' were a bit marginal safety wise.

        Packard had an affinity for 'catchy' names. I believe before they settled on 'PANTHER', they considered naming this car the 'GREY WOLF'
