The VERY first Packard, built in 1899, still exists and still runs! It is in the National Packard Museum in Warren, Ohio.

Are you giving Frequent Flyer miles for "Louis" to keep stopping by? Evidently he thinks so, because here he is again! "Louis" e-mailed the link to your blog to his friends whom he knows like old cars. He also posted a link to it at Chuck Pefley's "Extra Depth" for One A Day - Mostly Seattle.
