    'Don't think I'd wager on that one, Brent, but I'm glad it arrived OK. BP

    I guess this means it is too late to enter.

    That was one of my top 5 favorite shows as a kid. I am a long time racer...LONG time, and for me, just being in the race was the best part. I would rather finish second by inches than win by a mile. The challenge is why I raced. I never minded not winning, as long as I lost fighting for it and not just rolling around. This was not a race, but losing a close competition is the fun part.
    I wish I could be at SB this summer, just no way I can do it. Maybe someday.

    No Packard club member here, just hours of of searching the web for Indy car details. Fun quiz though, I actually learned some stuff. Now if only I can remember any of it.

    I thought to myself...."Canadian Military?"

    lol

    Actually, Kelly, I was waiting for a fellow Packard Automobile Classics club member to open his new, May 2012 Cormorant News Bulletin and see that item inside the front cover.

    Mine arrived today. I called Ted to verify his 289 was .060" over for 299 cubic inches, swore him to secrecy, and then posted the quiz. BP

    So which do you want:

    NOS Red Ball Envelopes
    or
    1962 Lark Pace Car Mailer?

    Good research. Congrats. BP
